Adding Products

So you have an eCommerce site. Now what? One of the most important things you need to do is add your products, of course! 

To add a product to your WooCommerce enabled site: 

  1. Login to the WordPress admin site for your website.
  2. Hover over Products and click on “Add New”.
  3. Give your product a name. 
  4. Click in the long description box and add as much detail as possible about your product. 
  5. Scroll down to the “product data” section and add your item price, and a sale price if desired. 
  6. If this item has limited stock, you can enable the “Manage stock” checkbox and add the starting quantity of this item. 
    • When using “Manage stock” you will also want to set the “low stock threshold” so the site will notify you when the stock of this item reaches the threshold.
  7. Click in the short description and add a shorter description of the item. 
  8. On the right side of the page, click on “Set product image” and either upload a new image for this product or select an existing image from the media gallery. This will be your primary or featured image of the product. 
    • You can optionally choose to click on “add product gallery images” and select multiple additional product images.
  9. Select a category to list this product under. 
  10. Click “Publish”. 

That’s it! Your new product is now available for purchase on your website.
