Add a new item (product)
« on: October 12, 2015, 09:19:00 PM »
Adding a new product to your store

You can add a new product in 2 ways.

Method A

1- Log in to your store.

2- At the bottom of the front page you will see Add Product Click on it.

From the top of the page going down we will run through the features you can use for each product.

3- Product Name: Enter your product name (See Image 1)

4- Category: select from the drop down menu what category you wish this product to be in. If you select no category the product will appear on the front page of your store. (See Image 1)

5- Description: if you wish to add a description, enter this into the text box. (See Image 1)

6- Currency: The default currency for your store is pre-set by admin to AUD (Australian dollars). This should be left as it is.

7- Price: Enter the price you wish to sell this item for, include the cents as well. eg $10.00 Not just $10

8- On Sale: Only use this feature if you want to put an item On Sale. Default setting is OFF

9- Sale Price: If you have ticked the On Sale option, you need to enter the special sale price of the item. If you tick the On Sale feature & do not enter an On Sale price, people will be able to buy that item for free. ** It is advisable that you DO NOT use steps 8 & 9 unless you are 100% sure of what you are doing.

10- Have Group Prices: For advanced users only. This can be used if you allow membership to your store & set special pricing for members only. Default setting is OFF

11- Requires Shipping: This should almost always be turned ON. This means the postage costs will trigger to activate. (see step 12). Default setting is OFF

12- Shipping Costs: If you do not have a shipping over ride in place where all items are grouped for one shipping price for the whole purchase, you can turn this feature on to charge a per item shipping price.

13- Weight: This is almost never used, however if you wish to enter the weight of a particular item, you can.

14- Count Shipping Only Once: As it says, if you have turned on steps 11 & 12, this will only count the shipping cost of one item, even if more than one is purchased. Default is OFF. Safer to always turn this to ON.

15- Requires Stock: By ticking this box, you the software will not allow an item to be purchased that has not been entered into stock. This can be used either way..... A - for made to order items leave this feature off. OR B - Turn it ON to enter stock that you have on hand and not allow 7 to be sold if you only have 6 available (saves delay in getting stock to the customer). The public will be able to see if there is stock available and choose accordingly. Default setting is OFF

16- Item Quantity In Stock: This is where you enter your stock quantity.

17- Can Have Quantity: Default setting is OFF. This feature if left OFF will only allow one of that product to be purchased at a time. Very few reasons to not allow a customer to buy as much as they like so it is best to always turn this feature ON (tick the box)

18- Everything else below this SHOULD NEVER BE TOUCHED. (See Image 3) This software was originally made for digital downloads & subscriptions.
Do not change any of the following:
- Access to All Downloads
-Subsciption Settings
- Move to Group
- Alternate Paypal address (if you change this, someone else will get recieve your payment)

19- To finish creating your new product, click on the Add Product button at the bottom of the page.

20 - Once you are through step 19, a new page will appear. This is where you can add pictures of your product.
Click on the Browse... button to search your computer for the picture image you wish to use for this product. Find the image file you wish to use, then click on the Add Picture button.
You can now add more images of that product, however only one will be seen by the public while prowsing your store until they open that product and select the See More Pictures option, then these will be visible.
If using multiple product images, ensure you select the Primary Image as the one you wish to be seen while prowsing.
