I am trying to add new product type in magento 2 but when i click on product type say Demo Product from the Add Product Select box than it will throw below error.

The requested component ("demo_product") is not found. Before using, you must add the implementation.

Product_types.xml code below

<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Catalog:etc/product_types.xsd">
<type name="demoproduct" label="Demo Product" modelInstance="Test\Demo\Model\Product\Type\DemoProduct" composite="false" isQty="true" canUseQtyDecimals="false" sortOrder="80">
    <priceModel instance="Test\Demo\Model\Product\Type\Price"/>
        <attribute name="refundable" value="true"/>
        <attribute name="is_real_product" value="false"/>

Here is Modal Instance

    namespace Test\Demo\Model\Product\Type;
class DemoProduct extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\Virtual
    const TYPE_GIFTCARD = 'demoproduct';    

Can you please tell me what is missing?

I am using Magento 2.1.

Thanks in advance.

  • I have updated the code. Jul 26, 2016 at 5:23
  • I think your model class should extended from the Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\AbstractType. So the code will be like - class DemoProduct extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\AbstractType { }

I have made like below and is working fine at my end. Please update your code to extend method,


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="../../Catalog/etc/product_types.xsd">
    <type name="giftcard" label="GiftCard" modelInstance="Vendorname\Modulename\Model\Product\Type\Giftcard" indexPriority="25" sortOrder="25">




namespace Vendorname\Modulename\Model\Product\Type;

class Giftcard extends \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product\Type\AbstractType
     * Delete data specific for Simple product type
     * @param \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product
     * @return void
    public function deleteTypeSpecificData(\Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product)
} ?>
