In this chapter we'll focus on the last of these items: product sales. For more information on memberships, see the concessions and memberships chapter and for more information on vouchers, see the vouchers chapter.
Products in onCourse are a simple way to supply additional, defined items during an enrolment sale. onCourse does not manage a stock inventory or the shipping of products. It is expected that most products will be supplied to the student in person when they attend the class.
