  • Creating a Grouped Product A Grouped Product lets you offer multiple, standalone products for sale as a group on the same Product Detail page. You can offer variations of a single product, or group them by season or theme to create a coordinated set. Products can be purchased separately, or as part of the group. Each product purchased appears in the Shopping Cart as a separate item.

  • Managing Stock for Configurable Products By default, Manage Stock is turned off for a configurable product, because the inventory is managed through each associated product. However, at times it may be necessary to apply inventory settings to a configurable product as a whole.
  • Managing Gift Card Accounts A gift card account is created for each Gift Card that is purchased. The value of the gift card can then be applied toward the purchase of a product in your store.
  • Gift Card Configuration The Gift Card configuration establishes the default settings and code pool for all gift cards sold in your store.
