What You Can Sell Using WooCommerce and What Product Types Are

You can sell all kinds of products and services with WooCommerce. But when adding these to your site, they will be assigned specific product data.

You can watch this video or visit this post to go through product types via text and screenshots.

In this video I talk a bit about what you can sell with WooCommerce, but spend the majority of the time going over what these four product types:

  • Simple Product
  • Group Product
  • External/Affiliate Product
  • Variable Product

This is not a slide show but a walk-thru/demo while I’m live in my WooCommerce dashboard. This is a video recording of a Seattle WooCommerce meetup virtual presentation.

Resources & Links

These are links to posts and other resources that will help you understand products types even more and how to extend them.
