Whether it's a one-off software in a file, multiple different license keys for serials, access to a private community through service, utilizing our developer-focused dynamics and subscriptions tools, these types allow you to manage the stock and delivery of your products.

These product types are without doubt the glue between your products/service and your customers.

Sellix supports up to five different product types:

  • File: can be used with any kind of files such as ebooks, software, and much more. Your customers will receive the file you uploaded to the product page.

  • Serials: can be used to sell accounts, licenses, keys, gift cards, etc. Your customers will receive one unit of your product. Make sure to select a delimiter when setting the Product Type as "Serials". The delimiter can be a new line, a comma, or any other customer character.

  • Service: can be used to sell anything that requires manual delivery. When setting the Product Type as "Service", your customers will receive the "Service Info" you specified on the product page. It can be anything, from a link to your contact information.

  • Dynamic: useful when using Webhooks. If you wish to know more about Dynamic Products, please refer to the Developers Documentation.

  • Subscription: easily utilize our advanced payment gateways to build monthly recurring revenue by billing customers. Feel free to review our Subscriptions Documentation for additional help.

How can I set the product type?

  1. Navigate to your products dashboard, either create a new product or select an existing product by tapping the "pen" icon.

  2. When you're editing the product, scroll down until you see "Product Type" and from there choose your product type

  3. Once you've set your product type, be sure to choose the minimum and maximum quantity, stock availability, and its delimiter (for serials).

  4. Finish any and all other settings and create/save your product!
