Ok, I know question may seen dumb however....
I have items in the app store.
In my manage products these items are listed at "releases" "up for sale" - I know the items are up and working and people are downloading them - non of my items are listed in the "virtual good" column.
So you can see my confusion here. My items are already in the store, then what is the virtual good?
Solved! Go to Solution.

A virtual good is an item that intended to be purchased in-application and therefore not something that can be downloaded to your handheld. It can mean different things to different applidations. The best analogy though might be 'credits' or 'virtual items' used in a game. You could use it to unlock new levels, purchase the rights to a song, or practically anything that you want to sell the user after they have downloaded your application.

Virtual goods are items that can be bought from within your application (i.e. extra levels for a game, extra features)

You are allowed to sell digital content such as images and eBooks, but you're not allowed to sell virtual currencies / in-app credits or any physical goods and services through the in-app purchase system

You can have consumable virtual goods in order to have something like a subscription. What you are not allowed to do is to allow the purchase of virtual currencies that would be an intermediate step in the app. In app things such as new levels, items, or avatars can only be made through direct in-app purchases.
