The Products module allows you to view all products and product categories within your Marketplace site. Products and product categories should only be managed from the Public View.

You can view products under the ‘Products’ tab on a Business Listing or by clicking the ‘Products’ button to the left of the primary image.

The products page then displays Product Categories (set by the business owner) and all products for a given Business Listing. Products can be used to highlight menu items, services that are offered, or even staff members. This business owner has chosen to use Products to highlight staff members in addition to services offered.
