Content Access Product

Content Access products are products where purchase of them entitles the purchaser to unlimited access to the content product. An example of this would be purchasing a single special edition issue of a magazine, rather than purchasing a subscription to gain access to all issues of the magazine.

To create Content Access Products:

  • Click on Products on Slatwall toolbar.
  • Select Products from the drop-down.

The Products listing screen will display products that have already been created.

  • Click on at the top right of the screen
  • Select Content Access Product from the drop-down.

The Content Access Create Product screen will appear.

  • Select the Product Type from the drop-down.
  • Type in a Product Name.
  • Type in a Product Code.
  • Put a price in the Price field.
  • Bundle Content Access Flag - select Yes or No. If you select Yes for this setting, it means that if you select multiple pieces of content during product creation, they will be bundled as one sku and they will be purchased together. If you set this to No and select multiple pieces of content, multiple skus will be generated, one for each piece of content selected.
  • Select the Content the purchaser will gain access to by placing a check next to the corresponding box.
  • Click

The Product detail screen will now appear with Basic fields that include information from product creation and accordions below with additional information about the content access product.
