As a store owner, it’s important to stock your site with attractive merchandise and keep your inventory up to date.

To manage your products, log in to your Admin Area and go to Inventory > Products. To modify an existing product, click its image. To create a new product, click Add, either from the grid view or from the edit view. If you click Add from the edit view, you can choose whether or not to copy existing settings to the new product.

Fill out all fields that have an asterisk; they're required. Fields without an asterisk are optional, but some of them are just as important. Be sure to assign the product to at least one category or subcategory, otherwise shoppers will only be able to find it if they search by it's name.

If you haven’t yet added the category or subcategory the product belongs to, you can do that now. Click Create a New Category and use the options in the dialog box. When you’re through customizing, Save. The new product now appears in the grid.

If you toggle this switch, you can view your products in a list with customizable columns. Hovering over any column heading allows you to modify its values.

To take a shortcut to the product page on the storefront, click View Live from the edit page, or the eye symbol from the grid.

Whenever you create a product, we recommend that you optimize it for search engines during setup to avoid complications later. To learn more, see our video called "How to Optimize Products for Search Engines."
