Create a Standard Product (product with no features)

The term Product refers to items that are either for sale or that you purchase for the company's use in resale, or by consumption. There are several distinct types of products that are handled by the DWA Commerce system in unique ways, including these:
  • Physical Products -- Items that require inventory and shipping such as books, or clothes.
  • Virtual Products -- A Virtual item is an abstract item that can be customized with specific details before purchasing. Once customized, it points to a Physical item with inventory.
  • Digital Products -- A Digital product is like a music download, or an electronic book download, which can be fulfilled over the internet, and has no inventory other than its master digital file(s) which are stored somewhere.
  • Configurable Products -- Products are defined during ordering using a predefined set of components, some of which are required and some optional. An example is a personal computer with configurations for RAM memory and disk drive.
  • Service Products -- A Service product is a task, procedure or work effort that has a specific description, price and agreement. Examples include equipment maintenance or repair, landscaping contract, or personal service agreement.

DWA Commerce supports:

  • Standard products that does not have any variants - eg : Model M Mobile of X Brand. In addition,
  • Variant products with features like colour, size, model, make, etc: a Shirt of colour Blue and size XL.
  • Digital Products
  • Subscriptions
