Managing products are only allowed by Admin or Shop Managers. Products will be created when the shop has new supply of stock. Each product will be issued a unique Product ID.

Viewing a product

You can view products by clicking Products on the left admin menu. When you add new products, they will be shown in the products management page. The list displays key details such as product image, name, quantity and price. In addition, if you want to view more on a particular product, simply hover over the product name, and click on view. You will be directed to the product page similar to your customer's perspective.

You can filter the list of displayed orders by date, status, price and customers. Also, by using the various drop down menus above the product list, you can filter orders by category, product types and brands.

If you prefer a faster and basic editing option, you can click on Quick Edit. Once you clicked, notice a quick edit form will appear downwards from the product name. You will still be on the Product management page.

This quick edit layout will allow you to edit key information such as product name, price, stock quantity, categories, backorders etc. However, for a more advanced and precise product editing, we do not recommend quick edit. Click Update to save your changes.
