This page contains an alphabetical list with a picture for each product, the product name and type, information about if it is visible (published) on your site, and the price.
You can view all products or filter by Visibility, Stock, or Price. You can also add custom filters which will be unique to your browser:
How to Create a New Product
Clickabove the main list to enter the product setup page.
1. Add General Information
Add the name of your product and a description. Use text formatting to make your product descriptions clear and engaging. The 8 basic functions are: bold type, italic type, sub-header, second sub-header, quote, bullet point list, numbered list, new text line, and add hyperlink.
Creating effective product names
Make sure that each product has a unique name so site users can find them easily and your administrators can easily manage your store. If you have 5 t-shirts, don’t just call them all ‘t-shirt’. Use more engaging and searchable names like black men’s t-shirt, sparkly unicorn girls’ t-shirt, red ladies t-shirt, sports t-shirt, etc.
Writing a good description
Your product descriptions can be cool and fun, or just based on the facts. They represent the tone of your store. Be creative if you like, but be clear and make sure that you have all the information that a buyer needs.
2. Define Pricing
Type the price of your product manually or using the stepper by the currency indicator. If your product is tax-exempt, leave thecheckbox empty. If you need to charge taxes, click on the box and a green check mark will appear.
Displaying localized prices
Saleor operates and charges in the store’s default currency but is capable of displaying an estimated amount in the user’s local currency.
- GeoIP is used to determine the user’s country
- Locale database (Unicode CLDR) is used to determine the local currency
- Open Exchange Rates is used to provide up-to-date exchange rates
3. Add Optional Search Engine Preview Content
Clickto add a description. If you do not add unique SEO content, details will be taken from the General Information field.
Help search engines find your products
Increase traffic to your store by adding SEO-friendly descriptions for search engines. Write interesting, short content about each product, using keywords that people will use in web searches. Create a unique description for each product so search engines do not think it is duplicated content.
4. Organize Your Product
Categorize your new product using the drop-down menus to assign a relevant Product Type and Category. This is mandatory before you can save the product. You can also optionally assign your product to a Collection.
5. Make Your Product Visible
Once you have set up all your product details, you can choose if it appears for sale or remains hidden from view. You can leave a product hidden indefinitely or sent to automatically go live at a defined time in the future by choosing a publication date.
If you want to push your product for sale, click on the switch until it shows as.
6. Save Your New Product
Once you have input your minimum required product information, clickin the footer to add it to your catalog, or click to exit the process and lose any new product information.
7. Add Images
Much the same as on social media or other platforms, there are two ways to add an image:
- Drag and drop a file from a folder on your computer
- Click on in the top right corner and select an image
You can add an unlimited number of images per product. The main image will be the one that is first in line. You can drag and drop images to change the order. Hover over a specific image and click the trash can to delete an unwanted image.
8. Add Image Descriptions
You can also add descriptions of specific product features to your images. Hover over the image and click on the pencil to edit the information.
9. Deleting and Editing Products
Click on an existing product from the main list and you will see the same interface as for adding products. Clickat the bottom of the screen to delete a product. To edit product details, just click any field and start making changes. The option in the footer will change color as soon as you have made amendments that need to be saved before exiting the page.
Save it for later
Don’t remove a product if you just want to temporarily take it away from your inventory. In that case, just uncheck theoption in the Visibility card, as described above.
Product Variants and Attributes
When you enter a product from the main list, you have all the same cards as when you create a product, with one additional card for Variants through which you can change product variants and attributes, check inventory, and control stock levels.
In this example, we can see five types of t-shirt. Four have enough stock to cover future orders. The XL size has a red mark and is unavailable. When we click on the product, we can see in the product variant details that the product is unavailable because there is only one item in stock (“Inventory”) and it has been ordered by a customer (“Allocated”).
Managing Variants of a Product
Click on a specific product from the variants list to edit the size, images, pricing, and stock.
You can edit the cost and sale price of an item in the Pricing card.
If you receive new stock, enter the amount in the Inventory field to keep up to date and avoid false out-of-stock messages. Save any changes before exiting.
You can repeat this process for all sizes or types of the same product by clicking the Variants card on the left side. Each variant has a specific SKU code (Stock Keep Unit) and will all information is unique to specific variants.
When entering a product from the main list, click thetext in the top corner of the Variants field to add or change product attributes and variants. For example, a top or t-shirt will have a product attribute such as the material it is made from, and a variant attribute of the sizes or colors in which it is available.
In the Product Attributes card, click on. A pop-up will appear in which you can enter new attributes. Click to confirm and exit.
You can edit existing attributes and variants in the same way, and delete them by clicking the trash can.
