The most frequently used Product types are Simple, Variable, Simple Subscription, Variable Subscription, and Group.
Subscription product types are created using the WooCommerce Subscriptions extension that allows for automated payment collection on the renewal anniversary.
There is also support for API access expiration time limits for built-in WooCommerce product purchases that require manual purchase renewal.
