The wiki articles on simple, configurable and grouped are good though I’m struggling to find much information on virtual products and bundled products. Would a virtual product be one that you’d download, eg an mp3 or an e-book? Would a bundled product be a number of simple products that you’re selling as one saleable item as opposed to a grouped product where you’re asking the customer to slect one of the products?

Yeah there doesn’t seem to be much info on bundled and virtual products at all… but I think bundled products are products that are made up entirely of other simple products. BUT. it appears that a bundled product can not have any custom options, and none of the simple products can have custom options. Which limits their use quite significantly wink
