'Item' vs 'Product'

Curious exact different

  • It depends on what it is, and in what context it is being used. – user3169 Jan 10 '15 at 0:53

Items are typically things that are part of a list or collection of some kind.

Products, in the sense you are thinking of, are things that are produced.

Since things sold in a store are on the inventory list of the store, we often call them items. And since they're often things that are produced by factories or farms, we also can call them products.

But if I made a list of all the rocks in my back yard, then those rocks would be items in the list, but they wouldn't be products.

Finding an example of a product that isn't an item is harder, but maybe something made one-of-a-kind, like,

The Curiosity Mars Rover was the product of 10 years of effort at NASA.
