Product Creation Overview
A product is the heart of any e-commerce business, and without it, there's no business. You can create any type of products on Fynd Platform by simply filling its details.
As shown in fig. 1, the product details are classified into multiple sections. Each section has mandatory as well as optional fields. We recommend you to enter as much detail as possible. Moreover, your customers will know more about the product if you fill the optional fields too.
Standard - For creating one product.
Set - For creating a set of products (e.g. pack of 4 shoes).
Composite - For creating a product whose inventory and shipment are handled in parts. After delivery, the parts are assembled to make the finished product, e.g. a bicycle frame, saddle, pedal, tyres, chain and handlebar are used together to assemble a bicycle.
Digital - Abstract or non-physical products or services like warranty, eye checkup, etc.

A product description helps the user to understand the features of the product. You get a fully-featured Markdown editor to write a description of your product. Within the description, you have the flexibility to format text, add links, tables, add list and much more.
Disable this option if your product is only available in one size, e.g. handbags. Enable this option if you have multiple sizes of product, e.g. T-shirt in S/M/L/XL size.
Enable this option if you want your inventory to be adjusted after receiving an order. Disable this option, if you don't want any changes in your inventory even after customers place an order. This is called 'infinite inventory'.
Product identifiers are a series of numerical or alphanumerical digits used to identify a specific product. It helps sellers in tracking their inventory and also plays a key role in helping customers locate products online. EAN, SKU, UPC and ALU are some of the well known product identifiers. Additionally, you can include more than one identifier by using the + button.
If you add multiple product identifiers, you'll have to set one of them as PRIMARY. A primary identifier is one which is used by the seller to receive an inventory. Example: Let's say your inventory uses EAN number to identify products; therefore, you must set EAN as your product identifier on Fynd Platform (irrespective of whether you've SKU, UPC or ALU number of your products).
If you add only one product identifier, that will become the default primary identifier. Read more about Product Identifiers
