Configurable Product

A Configurable product will have "Variations" which are links to simple products that define the SKU and Inventory of each option.

For instance, the example above will be 1 Configurable product and 4 Variations. The 4 variations will be Red, Blue, Green and Black. For each variation, you can have different SKUs, Inventory and Images.

Bundle Product

Different from a Group in that your customers can select from different options for each item.

And different from a Configurable Product in that the Bundle allows the user to simultaneously select and add multiple simple products to their shopping cart.

Bundle products also allow more dynamic or "fixed" pricing, making it easier for you to sell a bundle of products together for a discounted price.

Virtual Products

A non-shippable product. Often a service, warranty or virtual item. Use Customizations to allow customers to specify options.

Virtual Products are those that do not have a physical or digital counterpart. They do not ship, nor do they have a download link. This product type might be used for services like:

  • House Cleaning
  • 1-Year Newsletter Subscription

Downloadable Products

A product that upon purchase allows the customer to download a file.

Downloadable Products are similar to Virtual Products, with the option to add one or more digital files for download. Files can be uploaded one of two ways:

  • Directly on the product through the control panel
  • Saved to a third party host such as Amazon S3

When a customer buys a Downloadable Product, Zoey will generate a secure, encrypted link for the download to disguise the file’s actual location from the customer. This category might include products such as:

  • Music/MP3s
  • Computer Software
