Understanding the Difference Between Product Types
When adding a handmade product to your Craftrina shop, the first thing you’ll need to do, is decide what type of product it is.
A simple product will cover the majority of handmade products you sell. Simple products are shipped and have no additional options (such as selling a book).
Grouped products are a collection of related products that can be purchased individually and are made up of simple products. (such as a set of drinking glasses).
Virtual products are products that don’t require physical shipping. (such as a service).
*Choosing a virtual product, automatically disables any shipping related fields. A virtual product also does not trigger the shipping calculator in the cart or at checkout.
Downloadable products are digital products that a customer can download. When the downloadable product is selected, it automatically activates additional fields where you can provide a downloadable file for the customer. After a successful purchase, customers are given a downloadable file via a link in their order notification email. (products such as digital papers, web templates, mock-ups, etc.).
A variable product is a product with variations, each of which may have a different SKU, price, stock option, etc. (such as a t-shirt available in different colors and/or sizes).
