Virtual products are those that can be downloaded from the internet after paying the fee such as e-books, songs, movies, software etc. In the condition of physical orders (apparel, electronics, accessories etc) not matching the decided criterion for shipment, a virtual product enables the shipment. For example, Assume orders over 10$ can only be shipped, however, a person has selected shirt costing $ 9; it means product can’t be shipped. Although if the person, additionally, purchases a book worth $3 (virtual product) then total cost for the shipment becomes $12 then his/her product qualifies for shipment.
