Which way? Adding your Magento products – Simple? Configurable? Custom Options?

Posted Tuesday 4th Dec 2012 by Claire Jennings

Are you stuck between what Magento Product types to use?

Sometimes it can be time consuming deciding between what product types you may need to use in a Magento site – whether it be Simple, Configurable, Bundle, Grouped, etc – especially when there are so many other requirements to take into account. I have been concentrating on the Magento product types recently as i feel that it is one of the most important areas that needs to be planned out right from the beginning of your Magento build.

Have no fear, a Diagram is here!

To make it a little simpler, I have taken some time to create an easy to use diagram (Download Here) which helps to guide you what product method could be suitable for your store, with a few example product types to assist you.

This diagram should help you decide what product type is the best for your online shop, whether it is a Simple Product, Simple with Custom options, Configurable Product, Grouped Product, Bundle Product, Downloadable Product and Virtual Product.

If anyone has got anything they feel should be added, please let me know as I plan to create a more comprehensive version in the near future. Equally, if you would like me to cover anything else in regards to the product set up of Magento, then please let me know.

Thanks all, and hope it’s something that will benefit you!
