Types allow you to add custom fields for a particular type.

Custom fields allow you to hold extra information (e.g. brand, model number) against a product type. You can set up custom fields to apply to just the product (e.g. brand), or to the sub-product (e.g. model number). Any product custom fields are shown on the product listings on your website.

Custom fields can have pre-defined options, for example: You may already know all the brands you support. Just choose pre-defined option when adding a custom field. You can then add all the options separately. Alternatively, if you choose 'text', then a simple text-box will appear, where you can enter anything.
