Here's what I've got.

We sell downloadable resources which are all bundled into series and weeks. Each Series may contain 3-4 weeks, and each week contains 2-5 different products.

Here's my question... what is the best way to organize this?

For instance. I want the user to go to the Series and see what weeks are available. Then go to the week and see all the products. Should I do this all through categories? Or is there a better way to group these with product features, or something like that?

If you want to keep track of the products being sold or downloaded you would be better to use categories for the Series, parent products for the weeks and child products for the downloads. That's only my opinion though

Thanks. I noticed that when I do this... the parent product price is not displayed, and the child products descriptions are not shown. Should I just have the parent product have a price of $0.00 and have all the child product descriptions inside that parent? Or is there a better way?

Thanks!

You will need to add [formatcurrency cprice] to your template to display the parent price. You could have a look at page 41 of the 6.50 user manual for ways of setting up and displaying parent-child products (Inventory)
