To open this page, go to Products -> Products.

This page is where you can create and manage products and their characteristics throughout your online shop.

Specifically, from this page you can:

 

Adding a New Product

You can create an abstract and bundle product directly from the Products page.

Creating an Abstract product

To create an abstract product:

  1. Click Create Product in top right corner.

    You will be taken to the Create a Product page.

  2. In General tab:
    • In Store relation section, select the store(s) your product should be available for.
    • Enter a SKU prefix.
    • Type the name(s) for your product.
    • Enter New from and New to dates if you want to specify when the product should go online in the web-shop. This step is optional.
    • Click Save.
    • Click Next to go to the next tab (Price & Tax) or select a necessary tab.
  3. In Price & Tax tab you can set prices and taxes for products.
    • You can define prices that will apply to all users, as well as set specific prices for individual merchant relations. See Merchant Relations to learn how to create a merchant relation, which can subsequently be assigned specific product prices.

      To set default prices for all users, select Default prices in Merchant Price Dimension dropdown.

      To define specific prices for an individual merchant relation, select the merchant relation in Merchant Price Dimension dropdown.

      The merchant relation prices are inherited by Product Variants as well. You can check this by going to Variants tab of the Edit Product page and clicking Edit in Actions column of the Product variants table. On Price & Stock tab, select the merchant relation in the Merchant Price Dimension dropdown. The merchant relation prices of the concrete product will be the same as those of its abstract product.

    • Enter Original and eventually Default prices for the product for Gross and Net price modes.

      Defaultprices are regular prices, whereas original prices are prices with a discount, i.e. special prices. If you specify only a default or an original price, it will be displayed just like a normal product price. However if both prices are specified, the default one will appear crossed out in the shop, and the original price will be shown instead.

    • Select a Tax Set from the dropdown.
    • Click Next to go to the next tab (Variants) or select a necessary tab.
  4. In Variants tab, select attributes and values that define the difference between your product variants. This step is optional.
  5. In SEO tab, enter meta information to describe page's content. This meta information appears only in the page’s code, not in its content. This step is optional.
  6. In Image tab add images for the product. This step is optional.

Managing Products

The products can be managed by triggering certain actions in the Actions column in Products table on Product page. Specifically, you can View, Edit and Manage product attributes here.

Viewing Products

Click View in Actions column if you want to view all product-related information: general information, prices and taxes applied to a product, SEO (meta information), image sets.

In Variants you can view, and manage product variants.

Product groups is the place where groups the product belongs to can be viewed and managed.

Editing Products

To edit products, go to Product page and click click Edit in Actions column for the product you want to edit.

This will take you the Edit Product page.

From the Edit Product page you can:

  1. Go to General tab
    • Click Add Variant at the top right corner.

    • Add SKU (or select Autogenerate SKU)
    • Select a super attribute (or check Use custom value to enter your value)
    • Add Name for the Product and check Searchable if you want your product to be searchable by its name
    • Enter Valid From and Valid To dates if you want to specify when the product should go online in the web-shop. This step is optional.
  2. Go to Price & Stock tab
  3. In Price & Tax tab you can set prices and taxes for products.

    • You can define prices that will apply to all users, as well as set specific prices for individual merchant relations. See Merchant Relations to learn how to create a merchant relation, which can subsequently be assigned specific product prices.

      To set default prices for all users, select Default prices in Merchant Price Dimension dropdown.

      To define specific prices for an individual merchant relation, select the merchant relation in Merchant Price Dimension dropdown.

      The merchant relation prices are inherited by Product Variants as well. You can check this by going to Variants tab of the Edit Product page and clicking Edit in Actions column of the Product variants table. On Price & Stock tab, select the merchant relation in the Merchant Price Dimension dropdown. The merchant relation prices of the concrete product will be the same as those of its abstract product.

    • To take the prices over from the abstract product, check User prices from abstract product. Otherwise, enter Original and eventually Default prices for the product for Gross and Net price modes.

      Default prices are regular prices, whereas original prices are prices with a discount, i.e. special prices. If you specify only a default or an original price, it will be displayed just like a normal product price. However if both prices are specified, the default one will appear crossed out in the shop, and the original price will be shown instead.

    • Select Quantity for product and check Never out of stock if you want the product to never go out of stock.
    • Click Save.
    • Click Next to go to the next tab (Image) or select a necessary tab.
  4. In Image tab, add images for the product and click Save. This step is optional.
