Create a product from the Vendor dashboard

To create a product, navigate to the vendor dashboard. And then click on Products from the left menu. After that click on the Add New Products button from the top right corner.

You’ll get a new window where you will be able to create a new product giving all the details only.

Basic Details

The common information about a product are the title, price, description. Discount price is optional. You can even schedule discounts for a certain amount of time. You can enter a starting date and end date to apply automatic discounts to your product.

Both the categories and tags have to be created by the admin. The vendor can only select them from the frontend dashboard. Because allowing the vendors to create categories and tags might result into duplicates.

you need to select the categories,

Selecting Product Type – Simple Product

These types of products are simple and have no variants. They are single and standalone products, which does not require any other information to define different variants.

Selecting Product Type – Variable Product

A variable product is a product that has different types of variants. For example, you might want to sell a dress that is available in 3 different colors and sizes. So this option will enable you to add the colors and sizes you need. You can add variations based on anything you like, perhaps the material used or the stitching style.

Inventory and variants

This section holds a bit of complicated information. None of these fields are mandatory. If you do not need to add stock quantity and your is just a simple product, then you can totally skip this section.

But if you are creating a downloadable product or selling a dress or t-shirt, which has multiple sizes, then you should read this section carefully.

What is SKU?

SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit. It should be a unique set of characters which will not match to any other product.

Enable Product Stock Management

Let’s say you have 10 pieces of the product and you don’t want to receive after orders are placed for 10 units. If you enable stock management and enter 10 in the quantity field, then after 10 units are ordered, this product will show a message that all the quantities are sold and there is no stock.

But, you might want to take some pre-orders before your next batch comes up. So you can Allow Back Order to let the customers place orders even if the product is out of stock.

Downloadable Product

If you are selling photos, music, software or any digital product, then this is the option to use. If you click on the Add File button, three more fields will be added.

The name field defines what the downloaded file name should be. We are letting you define that because you might name the original file to something like “new-album-updated-jan-12.zip” and you want the user to download the file as “New Album”. So this option will be useful for you to serve and organize better.

If you are serving the files from your very own site, then you can click on choose file and select. But you can also serve the file from Dropbox, Google Drive or some other file hosting site you like.

Other Options

Visibility: The visibility option defines the privacy of the product. By default “Catalog and Search” is selected. But if you want the product to only appear on the category listing page, search results, or want to list it as a hidden product, then you can select the option respectively.

If you select any other option than Catalog and Search then the product will not appear on the site other than the store page.

Enable Min/Max Quantities
Activating this will set min and max quantities for selected products.
Enable Min/Max Amount

Click on “Save Draft” if you want to continue working on the product later or “Submit” for Loffedoh team review.
