Drupal Commerce 2: Set up a Product Type with Custom Fields
In part one and two of this Acro Media Tech Talk video series, we covered how you set up a new product attribute and used rendered fields, in Drupal Commerce 2. In part three we set up a product variation type with custom fields.
In part four of this series, we'll complete our overall product configuration by setting up a product type. The product type defines the type of product that you're creating (i.e. hat, shirt, shoe). This is what your store administrators will see when they add a new product to their catalog. By default, a product type will consist of a title, body, and variation type. We'll add some additional custom fields for things like taxonomy reference (for categorization), short description, specifications, product review, etc.
This entire video series, when complete, will show you how to set up a new product in Drupal Commerce 2, from start to finish. The video is captured using our Urban Hipster Commerce 2 demo site.

Its important to note that this video was recorded before the official 2.0 release of Drupal Commerce and so you may see a few small differences between this video and the official release now available.
Urban Hipster Commerce 2 Demo site
This video was created using the Urban Hipster Commerce 2 demo site. We've built this site to show the adaptability of the Drupal 8, Commerce 2 platform. Most of what you see is out-of-the-box functionality combined with expert configuration and theming.
