Products

Product entities describe the items that you sell. They hold high-level product attributes.

Products are the items in your catalog that you sell to your customers. For simplicity and flexibility, there's no categories or hierarchies of product – everything you sell starts with a product entity.

Products work with prices, which is where you can say how much you charge for a product and how often.

Product entities hold information like:

  • What the product is called
  • How it should be taxed
  • A description of the product
  • An image to show at checkout and on invoices

Once you've created a product, you can link a price to it. You can add prices to checkouts, transactions, and subscriptions to bill for your products.

Get a step-by-step overview of how to create a product that's ready-to-sell, including prices and price overrides. See: Create products and prices

There's no delete operation for products. Use the update a product operation to archive products when you no longer need them. See: Delete entities
