Product Lists are used in a variety of Bókun features, this article explains what product lists are and why they are useful
A product list is a list of specific experiences that you want to group together. For example, if five out of your ten experiences are walking tours, you can group them together to create a "walking tour" product list. These lists can be used with other features in Bókun to manage which products should be available for booking in specific sales channels.
You can use product lists with:
To create a product list, start by clicking Products from the side navigation and then select Product List
Your new product lists will appear on this page, once they have been created.
Click on the blue Create Product List button.
Enter the following information:
- Title: name of the list, for example, web shop or walking tours (mandatory)
- Description: internal description (optional)
- Flags: API related (only used for API)

The next step is to select the products you want to add to your list.

To create a sublist you just click "Create a sublist" and follow the same instructions as above.
