We study the sums of products of power sums of positive integers and their generalizations, using the multiple products of their exponential generating functions. The generalizations include a closed form expression for the sums of products of infinite series of the form $\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}\alpha^n n^k$, $0\vert\alpha\vert1$, $k\in\mathbb{N} _0$ and the related Abel sum, which define, in a unified way, the sums of products of the power sums for all integers k and connect them with the zeta function.
