System Location: Admin / Product Items
A Product Item is a product that can be purchased by a member. A transaction can be enabled to associate a single product item with a purchase or a basket of product items with a purchase. Product Items are not a required entity in the system, but can be used to track at the lowest level, the purchases of a member as well as allow the ability to bonus specific Product Items or groups of Product Items.
To create a new Product Item, click the "Add Product Item" link at the top of the aforementioned system location. Alternately, you can edit an existing Product Item by clicking "Edit" in the grid next to the applicable Product Item. Furthermore, unused Product Items can be deleted from this edit page.

- Product Item External Reference - The Product Item's external reference identifier. This is usually the SKU of the Item, but could also be a Unique Inventory Id also. (String of up to 20 characters)
