Last updated: June 12, 2024

Available with any of the following subscriptions, except where noted:

All products and plans

Create a product library of the goods and services you sell, then associate them with individual deals. With products, you can easily track what you're selling to your customers. When you associate a product to a deal, quote, invoice, or payment link, you are adding a line item, which is one instance of that product. Review the differences between a product and a line item:

  • Product: a product is a good or service that you sell. You can create and manage products in the product library.
  • Line items: when you associate a product with a deal record, quote, invoice, or payment link, you are associating one instance of that product as a unique line item. The line item is no longer connected to the product, and any updates to the original product's information in the product library will not apply to the line items that are already associated with your records.

Please note: any user that has access to the respective objects, can view and edit line items on a deal, quote, invoice, or payment link, but they must have Create custom line items permissions to create new custom line items.

To create and edit products in the product library, you must be a user with Manage product library permissions Learn more about viewing and editing line items in the line item editor.

    • Price [currency]: enter the product's value in your account's currency.
    • Billing frequency: select how often you will bill your contacts for the product or service.
    • Unit cost: enter the cost per unit, then HubSpot calculates the margin based on everything you sell, so you can understand how much money you're making per sale.

    • Term: enter a term length in months.
