Entry: 13. LMS - Product Management
Last updated: 2021-04-14
In SonicLMS Pro each product must belong to a product group. So before you create a product, you need to create a product group first. You can do this by going to “Product Management” -> “Add New Product Group”
Product groups will allow you to create different versions of the same product. For example, you can create an “English Language Course” with different billing cycles (1-6-12 months access). But it is not required to create different versions.
First you need to add a title for the product group. Then you need to select a product group type. This can be “All access”, “Content” or “Content package”.
To create a new product, go to “Product Management” -> “Add New Product”.
Here you have a number of options.
For each product two types of discount options can be set:
You can use either one of them or both of them together. If both are used, the discount will end when one of them ends.
Enable the discount option then select a discount price, an expiration date and time. By using the expiration time you can create short, flashsales.
Using this discount option you can set a fix number of items customers can purchase for a discounted price. First, you need to set the discount price for the product, then set the number of items available at the “Available stock” option. It will decrease by one every time someone makes a purchase. When the stock runs out, the discount will end and the product price will be set back to the original price. Optionally you can use the “Sold stock” option to give customers a sense of urgency.
