After you have added the special page eShop to your site, it's now time to begin adding products. If you have not already, log into your Premium Builder, and access "step 4 - Pages". In order to return to the previous course, please click on How to add an online store - eShop.
There are many options you can configure for your new product. Let's go over them now.
In the field labeled Name, enter the name of the product as you would like it displayed on your site.
In the Price field, enter the price for your product. You'll later choose a currency and format for your eShop, and the price will be displayed using those.
Using the stock level, you can keep track of the amount of stock of this product you have on hand. Simply enter the current stock level you have of the product.
Stock level is setup by default. If you don't want to have it enabled, you can disable it within the "Settings" tab by unchecking the "Enable stock level tracking" check box.
How does stock level work?
When your customers buy products from your store, the product stock level is updated automatically when you change the order's status to either "Processed" or "Completed". If you do have to update the status of the order, for example you have to set it to either "Failed" or "Cancelled", the stock level is updated accordingly. Stock level is for your use only. It will not be shown to the customer, and even if the quantity of a product is "0", your online customers can still purchase the product.
Selecting the Advertise Only check box allows you to display your product as an advertisement. This will show the item and description of the product to customers, but will not yet allow them to puchase it.
If you would like to upload an image for your product:
Your image will be displayed as a thumbnail in most parts of your store, and is shown full size once your visitors click the thumbnail.
The brief description is shown on either the main catalog page or on the category page the product belongs to.
The full description is shown when a user clicks on a particular product to view more information about it.
If you sell products that are available in different colors, you can offer your customers their choice of color by configuring it within the "Colors" tab.
If you'd like to add a new color, click the "Add New Color" button and follow the same steps above.
If your product comes in several different options, such as shoe sizes, you can configure these options within the "Options" tab. This is located between the "Colors" and the "Categories" tabs. A few common options are already available, such as Apparel size and Shoe size.
If you need to add customer options:
You can place each product into one or more categories. This is done within the last tab, "Categories". Once there, all you need to do is put a check in each category that you would like to add the product to.
eShop comes standard with two generic categories, "Category1" and "Category2". We'll show you later how you can add / remove categories.
When you finish adding your new product, click "OK" at the bottom to save the product.
Now that you have completed the course, click on How to arrange your products into categories - eShop. To see a list of all the classes in this course go to 203: Setting up an Online Store - eShop.
