Product types in TIPWeb-IT are used to categorize products into different groups or types. This is similar to the categories used by online stores to organize products of the same type that come from different manufactures.

The following video outlines a step-by-step process for creating a new product type in the catalog.

 

Best Practices

Use generic names for product types that do not reference manufactures or model numbers. For example, "Desktop" is a product type for all desktops, regardless of manufacturer.

Product Type names should be singular descriptors and not plural (i.e. "Table" instead of "Tables").
