Understanding Product TypesMagento Go's product catalog is based upon six product types, which are divided into two groups called, "Simple" and "Complex." However, it's really not as complex as it sounds!
Creating a Simple ProductOne of the keys to harnessing the power of product types learning how and when to use a simple, “standalone” product. This article explains how to create a Simple product for your Magento Go store.
Creating a Bundle ProductA Bundle product let customers “build their own” customized version of the product from an assortment of options. The bundle could be a gift basket, computer, or anything else that can be customized.
Creating a Configurable ProductThis article explains how to create a configurable product for your Magento Go store. A configurable product lets the customer choose from a list of options, such as size or color. Because each option in the list represents a separate inventory item, it is possible to track inventory for each variation.
Creating a Grouped ProductA 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.
Creating a Gift CardThis article explains how to create a Gift Card product for your Magento Go store. When a gift card is ordered, a unique code is generated that is emailed to a customer for virtual gift cards, or exported for printing to physical gift cards. This unique number can only be redeemed by one customer.
Creating a Virtual ProductAlthough virtual products do not have a physical presence, they represent something that can be sold, such as a service, a warranty, or subscription. This article explains how to create a virtual product for your Magento Go store.
