Add category

First, we will show you how to create a new category of products for your shop. To do this, login to your admin area and go to Catalog > Categories and press the Add new category button.

On the next page you have to add the information for your category. Note that if you have a multi-language application, you should press on the language icon in order to add descriptions for all languages you have installed. You may change the language via the crop down next to the desired field. Once you are ready, press the Save button and the category will be added.

Add product

Now you can add some products to the newly created category. Go to Catalog > Products and click on the blue NEW PRODUCT button in the upper right corner.

On the next page you should enter the details for your product - name, category, image, price, attributes, quantity, etc. You may also create a new category upon a product's addition via the Create a category button in the bottom right corner.

Once ready, you should click on the Save button. Once you save and enable it, the product will become available for your visitors to purchase. You may easily enable a product by clicking on the red cross under the Status menu. Clicking it would change the status to active and you would see a green tick instead of the cross.

To bulk change status of products - select the chosen products and use the BULK ACTIONS drop down menu.
