Added a new product type Product - Sales which is for items that are on sale and do not get a further discount. Tricky because documentation is misleading. What you need to do is add a new product class (which should have been named a product type because it is a new content type (generated by the code - not via add a new content type). The other parts of the process to complete things are to add sales to the product taxonomy, and fix the auto url code to begin with /product There is further confusion because the new content type does not immediately appear in drop down selection menus. Clearing cache may be a prereq, but it seems to take time (perhaps cron does something as well).
