1. How can I create a product?

Creating a product is very simple. Go to Products >>New>> Product, and put in the descriptions,

add the images and all the other details. For example: if you create the product “Blue shirt”, add it to the “Men’s shirts” category.

 

2. How can I add an image of a product?

You can do this while you actually create the product (see “How to create a product”), or add it at a later stage, after creating the product.

Go to Products >> Products, and select the product for which you wish to add the image. Go to “Images” and upload the archive by using the “Upload image” option. 

 

3. Can I add more than one image for the same product?

If you have multiple images for the same product you can upload them, and even choose where to display them:

List view: This image will be displayed in the list of products. The list of  

products appears to show the products of a category or in search results.

 

Magnified view: The image appears in a new window with a maximum size of 800x600 px, when the user  clicks on the image of the product in the Product Detail page.

 

Detail page: The image is displayed on the product detail page and on the initial page. It can be used in a  list of images or in a presentation with other images in a gallery/presentation.

 

View for promotional products: This image is displayed through the “Promotional products” page element.

 

4. Is it possible to show the product images in Cover Flow view (album)?

 

Cover flow is a dynamic way to display products that’s of great visual impact. To display the products in Cover flow view you need to click on Content/ Categories >> Datasheet view. Look for the page where the  products are shown and go to Layout >> Products>> Cover flow. Bear in mind that this option only works if you upload images of more than two different products.

 

5. Can I show stock levels of specific products in my online shop?

Yes you can. When you create a new product from Products >> New >> Product >> Stock and delivery period, it is possible to select the stock level. By entering these details, customers will be able to  see them through a colour bar:

– Green: product is available.

– Yellow: low stock levels.

– Red: product is out-of-stock.

 

This small bar will adjust automatically when the stock levels rise or fall. If a

product is not available, a message will inform the customer.

 

6. Is it possible to import (Upload) data on products found in the shop or export the data from the shop?

Yes. If the data on the products is in a format allowed by Excel (CSV in format, divided by commas), it is  possible to use the import tool to upload all the data on the shop easily and quickly.
It’s also possible to upload galleries of images, forums or guestbooks. If you need more details on this tool, see our tutorial video: “Importing and Exporting Data”, and our FAQs on this subject.
