To add a new product, click on Products from the left menu in vendor dashboard and then select Add New Products button from the top right corner. This will open a new window where you will be able to create a new product very easily with providing the most important details only.
Basic Product Info
The basic information about a product are the product name, price, short description and product image. 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.
Price listed by you is inclusive of GST.
Add Category and Tags
By default, category selection is singular. That is why there is a drop-down field to select a category. This should be the standard setting because according to Google Webmaster Guidelines and other SEO and UX best practices, it is recommended to have only one category assigned to a product. If you need to show your products based on multiple factors or for searching or sorting feature, you can use tags.
Contact Admin in case you want to add more categories and tags.
After you have added a product with basic details, you can now complete the product listing based on your specific requirements.
The new products will show Pending Review. Products will be approved within 1 business day if they match the theme of the website.
Click on the product name or Edit link under the product name to edit the product.
