Simple Product

One of the keys to harnessing the power of product types is learning how and when to use a simple, standalone product. Simple products can be sold individually, or as part of a grouped, configurable, or bundle product. A simple product with multiple, custom options is sometimes referred to as a composite productAny product type that offers customers a choice of options..

Creating a Simple Product

The following instructions take you through the process of creating a simple product with the basic fields. Each required field is marked in the Admin with a red asterisk (*). After you complete the required settings and save the product, you can add images and complete the remaining product information as needed.

Things to Remember

  • A simple product can have custom options with a variety of input controls, which makes it possible to sell many product variations from a single SKU.

    Custom options are not tracked as separate inventory items.

    A simple product that is included in a configurable, or bundle product type cannot have custom options.
