One of the most important parts of managing an e-commerce application is the products. In Magento this process consists of a few main parts.
Add Products in Magento
To add a new product in your Magento website you should go to the Magento admin panel > Catalog > Products. Afterwards click on the Add product button at the top right of the page.
This would redirect you to the next page where you should input the product's options like Attribute set, Product name, SKU, price, etc. There is also option to add Images, Videos, setup URL key and much more. You may review all of the available options when you scroll down. You may also add a new attribute if necessary by clicking on the Add attribute button.
This would open a pop-up window which you may use to add the desired Attribute. When ready, click on the Save attribute button.
When you fill in the necessary details for your product - just click on the Save button
Add Media to Your Products
Adding an image to an existing product is easy in Magento. What you need to do is go to the Catalog > Products page and select the product you want to add image for or click on the Edit link in the Action menu.
You will be automatically redirected to edit the product where you should scroll down to the Images and Videos section. To browse for an Image click on the Browse to find or drag image here icon. As the name of the icon suggests, Magento 2 provides the option to drag an image to upload it.
To add a video, just click on the Add Video button and a pop-up window would appear.
Here you may browse for video or fill in the URL of the video. Once ready - click on the Save button.
When the desired media is added - make sure to save the product using the Save button.
Manage Product Attributes
In order to access the available product attributes you should go to the Stores menu and select Product under the Attributes section.
To create a new Attribute you should click on the Add new attriubute button.
Once you are ready with the attribute, click on the Save Attribute button.
