A product in Crystallize is anything you would like to sell to your customers. The product information includes both core attributes like SKU, stock, and price, as well as rich marketing content. Similar to documents, you can define the structure of your products with the help of content modeling using shapes.
Modern business models include different types of products. In Crystallize, you can have physical products (like books) or virtual products (like software).
You can create and edit products in the Crystallize App or the PIM API. The Catalogue API can be used to retrieve product information.
Every product has at least one product variant associated with it. One of these will be designated as the default variant.
Data/content that can be stored and queried at the product level includes:
- Product Name - required
- Value-Added Tax (VAT) or Sales Tax
- Product Story Components
More is available at the product variant level.
Marketing content is typically the product story with information like origin details and pictures, material details, closeup photos, and video tutorials. These can be defined in the product shape itself.
If you have more than one language defined within your tenant, there will be multiple translations of each product that you can configure separately. See our Configuring Languages page for more information.
