Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

What is Simple Products?

As the name implies, Simple Products are the easiest products to understand and manage. Simple products represent unique items unlike anything else in your store. They have a single price (one price) and SKU.

Adding a Simple product is easy and effortless on fairfurt NG.

1. Go to your Dashboard > Products > Add Product. You then have a familiar interface and should immediately feel at home.

2. Enter a product Title and Description.

3. Go to the Product Data panel, and select downloadable (digital) or virtual (service) if applicable other leave empty.

Note: Virtual products don’t require shipping — an order with virtual products won’t calculate shipping costs.

What is External/Affiliate Products?

Affiliate marketing is one of the oldest forms of marketing wherein you refer someone to any online product and when that person buys the product based on your recommendation, you receive a commission.

External/Affiliate Products are items promoted on your site but are actually available for sale on a different website.

Purchases will be processed through the second site and the “Add to Cart” button will be replaced with a link you provide in the products backend.

Example: External/Affiliate products would be useful if you are a part of an affiliate or partnership program, especially if you receive commission for your sales.

What is Group Products ?

As the name implies, Grouped Products allow you to group multiple items into a single product. This would usually be considered the “Parent Product”.

It does not have a SKU or price, however, it links to other products on the site and allows the shopper to view all the products on a single page.

Example: If your store sells clothing, you may want to promote a specific outfit. The outfit would be the “Parent” Grouped Product, and the shoes, pants and shirt would be linked to through this product.

What is Variable Products ?

Variable Products are a bit more complex than Simple Products. Their complexity will vary based on the products you are selling. Unlike Simple Products, Variable Product can sell multiple types of items through the use of Attributes and Variations.

Example: If your store sells clothing, you may have a product called “T-shirt”. Shoppers can select the t-shirt they want by size and colour. Size and colour represent the product’s Attributes, and the options “Red” or “Small” are Variations within their respective Attribute. Each combination of Variations can have its own price and SKU. Hence in variable product, you usually have more than one pricing.
