Overview of creating a new product type in Magento 2

Step 1: Generate the app\code\Mageplaza\HelloWorld\registration.php file

  • Setup the app\code\Mageplaza\HelloWorld\registration.php file
  • Generate the app\code\Mageplaza\HelloWorld\etc\module.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Mageplaza_HelloWorld" setup_version="1.0.0">
  • Next, the creation of the etc/product_types.xml file is necessary to determine the model of the new product type.
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Catalog:etc/product_types.xsd">
    <type name="new_product_type" label="New Product Type" modelInstance="Mageplaza\HelloWorld\Model\Product\Type\NewProductType" indexPriority="60" sortOrder="80" isQty="true">
        <priceModel instance="Mageplaza\HelloWorld\Model\Product\Price" />


  • Name : the name you need to set for the new product type
  • Label : the label which is visible in the Magento backend
  • Model instance: endorse the product type’s attributes
  • Price Model : endorse the charge of the new product type

Step 2: Enter the code : Mageplaza\HelloWorld\Model\Product\Type\NewProductType model

namespace Mageplaza\HelloWorld\Model\Product\Type;
class NewProductType extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\AbstractType {
  • After that, it is possible to rewrite some functions and implement some changes you want there.

  • Enter Mageplaza\HelloWorld\Model\Product\Price model, which should be based on the Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\Price.
 namespace Mageplaza\HelloWorld\Model\Product;
 class Price extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\Price
  • Besides, you can also set the new product type as versatile type with some custom functions after extending the Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\Price class
