Detailed Product Info

Below the description, you will see the Product Data section. This is where all the nitty-gritty details are entered. The first thing we need to establish is what type of product we are adding. Choose  Simple ProductGrouped ProductExternal Product, or  Variable Product from the product data dropdown.
You will also notice Virtual and Downloadable checkbox options. These are mostly used for purchasing files or non-physical products.  If Virtual is checked the Shipping tab will disappear. If Downloadable is checked, an upload section will display in the General tab.

Filling out the Product Data

Enter pricing in the  General tabNote: this may go away or move elsewhere depending on what product type you are setting up (prices might be entered in Variations tab for a Variable product) 

Inventory tab 

Enter the SKU. Enter stock quantities if you want your online store to keep track of inventory. 

If you have a Variable product enter the primary SKU or you can leave this field for variation SKU’s that do not progress off of a parent SKU. 

Shipping tab

Enter Weight and Dimensions -  If you don’t have custom shipping options setup, you can usually leave the Shipping class blank. 

(Optional) Choose which products you’d like to select as related/recommended products in the Linked Products tab. 

Attributes Tab

Add specific information that displays as a table format. Attributes added here are specific to the product, but if you have an attribute that can apply to more than one product, we recommend making a global attribute. 

To add an attribute that is exclusive to the product, click the Add button > Name your attribute (ie. color) > Enter values (ie. Green) > press Save Attributes. 

Final Step

Once you’ve added all your product info, make sure you click Update/Publish.
