How to sell virtual products?
Cosmedrome allows you to sell virtual products and packaged products as well as physical products. In this article, we will talk about how you can add virtual products.
What is a virtual product?
Virtual goods or digital goods represent intangibles such as memberships, services, warranties or subscriptions, and digital downloads of books, music, videos or other products.
Virtual goods may be sold individually or included as part of the Grouped Product, Configurable Product, or Bundled Product product types.
Aside from the absence of a weight field, the process of creating a virtual product and a simple product is the same. The following instructions show the process of creating a virtual product using a product template, required fields, and basic settings. Once you've completed the basics, you can complete the advanced settings and other settings as needed.
How can I add virtual goods?
1)Log in to My Account > My Seller Account > Products page.
2)Click the "Add New" button.
Select the "Virtual Product" option from the product type section under the product name section as seen in the picture above.
3)When you click on the virtual product option, you will see that some of the information and tabs you need to fill in the menu have changed. It is recommended that you change the product type before you start filling in the product information. Thus, you prevent the filling of information that is not required in the virtual product that exists in the physical product. As seen in the image below, options such as "Shipping" that existed in the physical product have disappeared, and the virtual product option has been included.
4) Before continuing, let's give a brief information about the tabs in the previous picture.
