If your product has multiple options such as Color and Size, select Variable Product.

We’ll go over Variable Product as well below.

5. Enter the Price of the product. If your product is on Sale or would like to show a Strike-Through Pricing, enter the original price in the Price field and enter the actual selling price (sale price) into a Sale Price. You can also set a schedule for sale date, sale quantity, etc.

6. Enter the Cost of your product (Cost of Goods), excluding tax. This is just for your informational use to calculate profit, etc.

When you click on the image box, an Upload Files window will popup where you can Drag and Drop images or Select Files to upload. Please note that all images uploaded will be automatically compressed to reduce the file size, so it may take couple of seconds for it to process.

15. Inventory (Sub-menu) – Enter your product’s SKU number. It’s always a good practice to have a naming scheme for the product SKU. For example, a brand name of ABC and a product name of DEF and a color of Black and a size of Small would look something like ABC-DEF-BLK-S or similar. You can always choose your own SKU scheme. Choose how you want to Manage Stock. If the product is a Simple Product, you can check Manage Stock? button and enter the Stock Qty of an actual inventory quantity of the product. If the product is a Variable Product, uncheck Manage Stock? checkbox and you will enter a separate Stock Qty on each variation level. We’ll cover the Variable Product stock management after this.
