Combining a Tangible Product With Your Online Product

Simplero is not currently set-up for the sales of tangible products. The reason for this is that we don't have a great shopping cart feature and there is not currently a way to collect shipping without including it into your price. However, there are times where you may want to include a tangible product with your virtual product.

It is still possible and here's how...

Create a Product

  1. Select Products from your Simplero Dashboard
  2. In the Products tab, click the +Create new product button in the upper right corner

    Create_new_product_button
  3. You will be directed to the product creation screen

    Create_new_product_screen
  4. Enter the information for your new product:
    • Name - the name for your product (this is the only required field)
    • Product type - what you are selling
    • Summary - type a short summary for checkout and user accounts
    • Price - set a base price (you will be able to set-up payment plans and subscription pricing shortly)
    • Tax options - select the applicable options
    • Write your Welcome email
  5. Click the Create product button to save

If at any time you would like to change any of the above information you will be able to do so in the "Configure" tab within the product.  

  1. From the Products tab, locate the product name and click the Wrench icon in the far right side of that product
