Marketplace Multi-Vendor - Supplier View - Creating Products
Creating Products (Supplier Side)
In the Vendor Panel choose Add a Product from the navigation bar.
After defining your product's attribute set and type, you will see the Add Product form that allows suppliers to describe their new product.
Some fields are mandatory in order to properly publish your new product. These fields are:
- Product Name
- Short Description
- Detailed Description
- Quantity Available in stock
- Product Weight
Suppliers can also define a special offer or deal for a product, and limit the period of time for which that special offer will be available for customers.
Suppliers can also add one or more product images on the right side of the form.
To set any picture as the main picture for the product, just click on the house icon and the thumbnail of the selected image will have a green border around it.
The next step is to select the product categories, which is a required operation.
If the product is not assigned to any category, customers will not be able to find it in the store catalog.
It is possible to configure the categories and define which will be visible to specific vendors from the Admin Panel. For more information, please read Restrict Categories per Vendor (Admin Side) article.
After filling out all required field in the Add a Product form, remember to click on the Save Product button!
It's possible to view and manage all created products by clicking on the tab Product List in the Vendor Portal.
