  • Full title - longer description, displayed on product pages.
  • Description - enter a short product description. Depending on the theme you use, the description may not be visible in the product pages of your online store. If you do not enter SEO data, the information here is used as a meta description by search engines.
  • Visible - whether the product is visible in your online store.
    • Always visible - the product is always visible whether the item is in stock or not.
    • Visible when in stock - the product is visible only when it is in stock.
    • Hidden - the product is not visible in the shop.
  • Brand - select a brand from the list or add one by typing its name. For more information see Adding brands.
  • Supplier - select a supplier from the list or add one by typing its name. For more information see Adding suppliers.
  • Delivery time - enter the anticipated delivery time of the product so  customers know when they can expect their order. Delivery times are associated with the stock. You can assign different values to the In stock message and Out of stock message. Delivery times are displayed on the product pages of your online store. To set up delivery times, on the left menu of Backoffice click Products > Delivery dates.

 CONTENT

Tell your customers more about the product. This information you enter here appears in the Information tab of the product page. Avoid descriptions provided by suppliers, and use your own text. Unique content is important because it increases the visibility of the product and your online store.

INVENTORY & VARIANTS

Configure product prices and stock. If the product has several variants, such as different sizes, you can create the variants here. Each variant has its own inventory management.

For more information see:

NOTE: Variants are counted in the product limit of your subscription. For example, if you're subscribed to the Essential package, with 250 products, and you assign 12 variants to a product, you have 238 products remaining.

IMAGES

High-quality product photos are essential to the success of your online store and give customers an idea of what they can expect.

To add web images click Add images from the web. Make sure the link starts with  http or https and ends with an image file extension such as jpg or png. See Adding product images for more information. 

PRODUCT SET

Before you can select a product set you need to create one at SHOP > Products > Product sets. With a product set you offer customers a variety of choices of a product that they can order.

NOTE: When you attach a product set to an existing product, all variants that you previously created for the product under INVENTORY & VARIANTS (including the default) are overwritten by the variants of the product set you attach. You may need to reconfigure some of the data for the variants, such as price and stock.
