When you add a new shop, you will see 6 product types that you can select.

Magento Product Types

Simple Products

 

This is the most popular product in Magento. It is a physical product with a SKU and no variations. For example, a cup, a table, a pencil. Simple product can be joined with a Grouped, Bundle or Configurable product types.

 

Bundle Products

 

A bundle of simple (or virtual) products. Magento Merchants can build their own product from the available portfolio. These products cannot be sold separately. For example, a bike where a customer chooses wheel size or damper type.

 

Every one of these items is a simple product, but can be sold as a bundle product.

Virtual Products

 

Non-physical product that cannot be touched, but can also be sold, like a warranty, a service, a reservation, insurance. Virtual products doesn’t let you select a shipping method and can be joined with Grouped and Bundle products.

 

Grouped Products

 

Enables a merchant to sell single products in groups or to group products by season or color. Price cannot be specified for grouped products, but a discount can be applied. For example, a mug is sold together with a plate.

 

Downloadable Products

 

Downloadable products are online software products, like an MP3 file, an eBook, a Magento extension, etc.. You cannot select a shipping method for downloadable products because there's nothing to ship.

 

Configurable Products

 

A configurable product is a simple product with a list of options. Each option is a single product with its own SKU, so it can be easily found in storage. For example, a jacket available in different colors or sizes or bike available in different frame sizes. Every variation can have its own cost.
