Product Catalog

Your product catalog is a shop page that reflects all the available products you have in Simplero. This can be added as a page on your site or as a section on a page on your Simplero site.

There are 3 types of products

  1. Listed in your product catalog. Everyone can get to it.
  2. Unlisted but available for purchase. In other words, you need to be given the URL to purchase.
  3. Closed - not available for purchase, not listed anywhere
