"Gridded Products" refers to products in Counterpoint that are created with multiple options. Modern Retail highly recommends the use of gridded products for relevant products, and this article will explain why.
What is a Gridded Product?
A typical example of a gridded product is something like a t-shirt sold in small, medium, and large; a gridded product has that shirt exist as one product with three options, whereas without a gridded product the small, medium, and large t-shirts would each be discrete products.
Why Use Gridded Products?
There are several reasons to use gridded products wherever you can. First and foremost, it results in less bloat, and a better organized dataset for your product. Gridded products are also much more presentable on your website; when a product is created as a gridded product, it can easily be viewed online as one product with a dropdown displaying different options, rather than several separate products with their own pages.
If you're familiar to older versions of Counterpoint, you may be used to the old Gridded Product interface, which was clunky and difficult to use. Current versions of Counterpoint have fixed many of these issues, and are much more usable.
