Product Types

Drupal Commerce ships with a single product type called "product."

A product type is to products what a content type is to specific content such as an article or basic page.

product type             content type
------------    ::    -------------------
products                   article or basic page

So in my case, I have three product types:

  • membership
  • conference
  • conference meals

Custom product types allow us to add fields and field displays beyond the basic SKU, Title, Body, and Price.
