Selecting a type of product type

3. Fill in basic product information: name, identifier and description.

Defining product type settings

Each product has a product code that must be unique. It identifies the product in the system. Product code can have up to 64 characters. It can contain only letters, numbers, underscores, and dashes.

4. Add Fields that describe the product by dragging them from the Field types area to the Field definitions section, and then configure them.

5. Add attributes by dragging them or their groups from the Library area to the Attributes section.

When you define attributes for the product type, you can add or remove either whole attribute groups or individual attributes.

Adding attributes to a product type

You can also remove whole groups, or single attributes from groups that you don't want to use for the given product type. Do this by clicking the X icon next to the group or attribute.

For every attribute, you can select Used for product variants. Attributes that have this option are used to automatically generate product variants.

6. Below the Attributes section, in the VAT rates area, assign VAT rates that apply to all products of this type.
