A virtual or digital product is something that’s intangible and doesn’t contain physical stock. This includes subscriptions, memberships, courses, digital downloads of music, books, movies, and other products.
Virtual products do not have a physical presence. In Crystallize, sales of these products are facilitated with a webhook that is called after an order is created.
Examples of virtual products are:
- Software download
- Online magazine access
- Refill of a phone card
In recent years, digital products have become extremely popular, accounting for a huge percentage of overall eCommerce sales.
