Add a product

Adding new products to sell in your shop is a breeze - head to the Products area in your admin and click the Add product + button to get started. Read on for a rundown of what each part of the product page is for.

Status

Is this item ready to sell now? Mark it Active. Not ready for the public? Make it Hidden. None left in stock? Mark it as Sold Out. Got something new to tease but not ready to sell yet? Set it to Coming Soon.

Add product images

Upload your best shots here. Trust us, photo quality can make or break a product’s sales. When in doubt - natural light (no flash), sharp focus, and a blank backdrop are the way to go. Read up on advice in our DIY Product Photography guide.

Name

Give your product a name - brief, but descriptive works best.

Price

How much does this product cost? Enter the price here, or if you offer variations with different price points, use the product options feature to add each option and its own price. If you’re not sure where to start, our Guide to Pricing Your Products can help.

Description

Tell the world all about this product. Why should visitors buy it? What makes it unique? How about sizing, measurements, or other characteristics customers will want to know about? Check out our Write to Sell guide for more pro-tips).

Options

Add an option for each variation you offer of a product, like size or color. You can even set different prices for options within a product. Got more than one set of options? You’ll need to create a separate product listing for that, or group together options in one list (Small / Green, Medium / Green, etc.)

Shipping

Here’s where you’ll set shipping costs for the product. For the full 411, check out Charge shipping for a product.

Categories

Sort products into their own categories here - Tees, Prints, Accessories, Cassettes, whatever makes the most sense for your shop.
