This article presents an overview of Zuora's product catalog. It discusses how Zuora product catalog is built specifically for subscription businesses, what the different components of the product catalog are, and what the available charge models for creating custom price plans.
In Zuora Billing, you have one product catalog which you use to define the products your company sells and the pricing for those products. Zuora designed the Product Catalog specifically for subscription-based businesses, which is different from the product catalogs you may find in ERP, CRM, or accounting applications. Those applications were designed with physical goods in mind. For example, whereas a product in a traditional widget-based product catalog only has one price (for example, $9.99 per unit), prices for subscriptions are expressed as one or more price plans, with each price plan containing any number of fees, such as activation fees, monthly subscription fees, and usage based fees.
What makes Zuora's product catalog stand out is its flexible and easy-to-use interface and its support of sophisticated charge (pricing) models. You can add and remove products and services as your business grows and evolves. With a variety of charge models to choose from, you have the power to adapt your pricing to your customer and market needs, helping you grow your business and drive revenue in a shorter amount of time.
Here are the key concepts to understand when building your product catalog:
