What are Products?
Products are used to charge customers for a physical product, service, or protected content. Essentially, products can be seen as price tags that tell the system when and how much to charge the purchaser.
How to Use Products
Products are created by simply giving an item you would like to sell a name, and a price. You may also include payment options like subscriptions or trial periods, shipping for physical products and/or associative access to any bundles or membership levels.
By associating a product to a membership level or bundle, access will be provided when the product is purchased; and, if the product is a subscription, access will be revoked when the subscription is terminated.
By opening MemberMouse > Product Settings and viewing the Products tab, you can create, edit, delete, and perform various other operations on your products. For detailed instructions, please consult our Managing Products article.
The screen shot below is an example of what the products tab will look like. Here you will be able to see all of the different products you have created, their their settings and attributes, and the purchase links you may place on your site. Consult the Product Options table below to learn more.
