As an essential tool in homological algebra, tensor products play a basic role in classifying and studying modules. Since hypermodules are generalization of modules, it is important to generalize the concept of the tensor products of modules to the hypermodules. In this paper, in order to achieve this goal, we present a more general form of the definition of hypermodule. Based on this new definition, some of the required concepts and properties have been studied. By obtaining a free object in the category of hypermodules, the notion of tensor product of hypermodules is provided and some of its properties are studied.
