Product Basic Information

Basic product information for each product allows you to control how the product will appear on your shopping store and with great detail. Many of these basic settings are required to be entered.

Product Wizard

You can select from some pre-designed products such as retail goods, downloads, donations, services, subscriptions, and gift cards and EasyCart will setup sample data for the minimum requirements and show you some of the fields that are necessary for that type of good.

You can skip this step as well, and start with a blank canvas for creating your product as well.

Note: All payment processors will work with these types of products, except Subscriptions, which require the Stripe payemnt processor or PayPal for minimal subscription signups.
