There are multiple ways to add products to your store - you can use the built-in add/edit tool to manually create products in the store admin area, upload products in bulk using a CSV-formatted file, or use an app or the API to migrate your product catalog from another platform.

This guide covers the basics of how to create a product in the store admin area manually.

If you’re interested in creating a product through an imported spreadsheet, please refer to Import-Export

To create a product it’s enough to spesify its name only. The rest of the product details can be configured later on if required:

Adding a New Product

To add a new product:

  1. In your store’s Admin area, go to the Products section (Catalog > Products). xc5_products.png

  2. Click the Add product button. xc5_products_add_product_button.png

    The Add product page opens. xc5_products_add_product_page.png

  3. Use the fields on the Add product page to provide information about the product. The page contains quite a number of fields, but you do not have to set all of them right now: the only required field is Product name, which means you only have to provide that value, whereas the rest of the product fields may be configured at any time later. See the Product Details guide for a detailed explanation of all the product page fields.

  4. To save the product information you have provided, click Add product at the bottom of the page. The new product will be saved. If necessary, you will be able to find it in the Products section (Catalog > Products) to do further editing or to specify some advanced product settings (See the Advanced Product Details guide for more info).
