Product Groups can be used to used to group sales reporting by the types of products you are selling. Every product you create can be given a Group (e.g. Raw materials, Beer, Wine, Spirits, Bolts etc).

If you are importing product details using the product import templates, then these fields are created automatically.

  3. If you have created attribute sets and want to assign a default attribute set to the product group, select the required value from the Default Attribute Set drop-down list. For more information about attribute sets, see Attribute Sets. The default attribute set will be empty for product groups created via import.
  4. Click Add.
