Status: There are three possible statuses:

Product Type:

  • Simple Products

Simple products have one SKU, are shipped, and have no variations/options. For example, a book.

Variable products can have multiple variations/options, each of which may have a different SKU or price. For example, a piece of clothing that is available in a variety of colors and sizes.

  • Grouped Products

Grouped products are related products that can be purchased individually. Note that, grouped products can only consist of simple products. For example, an iPhone could be a grouped product as there are 8GB, 16GB, etc. variations of that same product parent.

Product Description: The short description typically appears next your product image on its page depending on your theme. Use this for a brief overview of your product. Save details for the long description (described above), which typically appears within the product description tab.

Categories: You can select categories or create new categories here depending on how you want to categorize your products. You can also create subcategories by selecting the parent category of it.
