How to Add Products to Your Online Store
After setting up your online store, you are ready for adding products to your store. First, click ‘Products’ from the main menu.
Before adding products, you need to add product types for those products. Product type defines the attributes of the product which will be used for filtering products on the listing page or selecting product variants on the product page.
In order to add a new product type follow these steps:
Go to Products > Types from the menu.
Click New Product Type button
Enter a name for the new product type
The new product type is created. Enter variant options and filterable attributes to the product type if you need any.
Variant options are product attributes like size or color. After you add these variant options you will be able to enter values for these options when you are creating a new product from this type.
Filterable attributes are used to filter products on the product listing pages. For instance, you can add a ‘Brand’ attribute and let your users filter your products by their brand.
To add a new product go to Products > Products from menu and follow these steps:
Click New button on the top right of the page.
At this step you should decide whether your product has any variants or not. If your product has no variants such as color or size then you should continue as a single product.
