Creating products is the first step to setting up a complete online store. You can easily add products to your store by adding the product details and uploading images. Furthermore, if your product has options such as size, color, weight, or volume, you can also create variants based on these options.

What’s more, you can upload and/or update thousands of products in minutes with our bulk upload and bulk update features. Finally, when customers leave reviews on your products, you can either approve or reject them.

Product Types

Aasaan supports a diverse range of product types, each with its unique features and specifications. Understanding these product types is crucial when creating a product, as it determines the specific input fields and options available.

Physical and Virtual Products

  • Physical Products: These are tangible items that exist in the real world. For instance, a physical book made of paper.
  • Virtual Products: Designed for digital or symbolic content delivery, such as a PDF version of the mentioned book.

Key Differences

The primary distinction in your store between physical and virtual products lies in tax assignments. Different tax rates may apply to these product types due to their distinct nature.

Bundle

Bundles combine several products sold together at a price different from the total cost of individual items.
