How to create custom product type in magento2

Sometimes you need some extra product type for some needs. So today I discuss about how you can achieve this.

1. Create module.xml [app/code/SR/CustomProductType/etc]

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="SR_CustomProductType" setup_version="2.0.0">

2. Create registration.php [app/code/SR/CustomProductType]


3. Create composer.json [app/code/SR/CustomProductType]

    "name": "sr/module-custom-product-type",
    "description": "N/A",
    "require": {
        "php": "~5.5.0|~5.6.0|~7.0.0",
        "magento/module-store": "100.0.0",
        "magento/module-backend": "100.0.0",
        "magento/framework": "100.0.0",
        "lib-libxml": "*"
    "type": "magento2-module",
    "version": "100.0.0",
    "license": [
    "autoload": {
        "files": [ "registration.php" ],
        "psr-4": {
            "SR\\CustomProductType\\": ""

In Magento2, xml configuration file are divided into small file. So for product type, you need to create product_types.xml inside [app/code/SR/CustomProductType/etc]

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Catalog:etc/product_types.xsd">
    <type name="customProductType" label="Custom Product Type" modelInstance="SR\CustomProductType\Model\Product\Type\CustomType" indexPriority="100" sortOrder="100" isQty="true">
        <priceModel instance="SR\CustomProductType\Model\Product\Price" />
            <attribute name="refundable" value="true"/>
            <attribute name="taxable" value="true"/>
        <type name="customProductType" />

name: custom product type code
label: Type view
modelInstance: Model class
priceModel: Price model, you can calculate price your custom need

So now create modelInstance [SR/CustomProductType/Model/Product/Type/CustomType.php]

namespace SR\CustomProductType\Model\Product\Type;

class CustomType extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\AbstractType
     * Delete data specific for Custom product type
     * @param \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product
     * @return void
    public function deleteTypeSpecificData(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product)

Create priceModel [SR/CustomProductType/Model/Product/Price.php]

namespace SR\CustomProductType\Model\Product;

class Price extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\Price


Now create a setup installer for this module

namespace SR\CustomProductType\Setup;

use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetup;
use Magento\Eav\Setup\EavSetupFactory;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\InstallDataInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleContextInterface;
use Magento\Framework\Setup\ModuleDataSetupInterface;

 * Class InstallData
 * @package 
class InstallData implements InstallDataInterface
     * EAV setup factory
     * @var EavSetupFactory
    private $eavSetupFactory;

     * Init
     * @param EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory
    public function __construct(
        EavSetupFactory $eavSetupFactory
    ) {
        $this->eavSetupFactory = $eavSetupFactory;

     * @param ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup
     * @param ModuleContextInterface $context
    public function install(ModuleDataSetupInterface $setup, ModuleContextInterface $context)

        /** @var EavSetup $eavSetup */
        $eavSetup = $this->eavSetupFactory->create(['setup' => $setup]);

        $attributes = [

        foreach ($attributes as $attributeCode) {
            $relatedProductTypes = explode(
                $eavSetup->getAttribute(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product::ENTITY, $attributeCode, 'apply_to')
            if (!in_array('customProductType', $relatedProductTypes)) {
                $relatedProductTypes[] = 'customProductType';
                    implode(',', $relatedProductTypes)

Run following command

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

That’s it!
