What are Products?


Products are used to charge customers for a physical product, service or protected content. Essentially, products can be seen as price tags that tell the system what to charge, how much to charge, and when to charge.


How to Use Products


Products are created by simply giving an item you would like to sell a name, and a price. You may also include payment options like subscriptions or trial periods, shipping for physical products and/or associative access to any bundles or membership levels. By associating a product to a membership level or bundle, you give the bundle or membership level the same price and specifications as the product. To learn more about associated access, see the Membership Levels Overview article and the Bundles Overview article.
