This article guides you on how to add a product and its details to your online store from the ShopBase admin page.

Step by Step Tutorial

From your ShopBase admin, go to Products > All products.

From the Products page, click Add product.

Enter a title for your product, along with additional details in Add product.

In which:

Title: Product name you want your customers to see. Product names can contain up to 255 letters.
Description: Try to have a compelling and informative description that will entice buyers to take on-site actions like Add To Cart or Buy Now. If you are not the manufacturer but the retailer, change the description so that it does not exactly match the one from the manufacturer, which is beneficial for your product across searching tools. In addition, this information field uses a diverse text editor, so you are free to format the text to your own liking.
Media: This section shows your product media to customers. You can choose Add media to add image or video from your device or Add media from URL to add image/video from an external URL.
Pricing: You can set up information about product prices:

- Price: Selling price of the product which is displayed for the customer to see.

- Compare at price: Original price of the product on sale, which is shown to the customer.

- Cost per item: Cost the seller is charged for a product or variant, only visible in the ShopBase admin page, not to the customers.

The product currency is the entire store currency, you can change the currency in the General page under Settings.

Inventory: You can set up information about product's inventory:

- SKU (stock keeping unit): Item codes to help the classification of goods in the warehouse be more detailed, such as sorting by style, date of manufacture, size,…. This code is very useful in the process of managing your inventory. To effectively track and report sales, each SKU needs to be unique. The SKU field is optional. You can also create your own SKU format.

- Barcode (ISBN, UPC, GTIN, etc.): An image consisting of a series of parallel black and white lines. When scanning the barcode, we get information about the product. The Barcode field is an optional field when adding products to ShopBase, but if you sell on some platforms like Google Shopping or Amazon, you must add this field so the product can be displayed on the sale channel. GTIN is the only barcode used internationally to store and locate product information. The UPC, EAN and ISBN, ... codes types are the different GTIN codes (you can read more at this article). If you don't have a GTIN for a product, you can ask the manufacturer for it.

- Inventory policy: Set to allow ShopBase to track product inventory. Select Don't track inventory if you don't want ShopBase to track product inventory or ShopBase tracks this product's inventory if you wants ShopBase to track product inventory. When you select ShopBase tracks this product's inventory, the Quantity field is displayed allowing you to fill in the number of products in stock, which will update every time a product is ordered. Check Allow customers to purchase this product when it's out of stock if you want your customers to be able to pre-order the products that are out of stock (inventory quantity is 0).

Shipping: Related to goods delivery. You can add goods weight in Weight field for further shipping fee calculation.
Custom options: Allows you to set up product personalization. You can refer to the instruction on how to add personalized features for products in this article.

Product availability: You can set the product to display on other information channels. Check the channels where you want products to be displayed with Online store listing pages (allow the product to be displayed on your online store pages such as homepage, gallery page, etc.). product search page, ...), Search Engine Bot Crawlers, Sitemap files (allows products to be displayed on search engine pages).
Organization: This section allows you to set up information related to products that you can use to organize and organize products better in the store, saving you time managing and searching products on the store, while also making it easier for buyers to find products.
