4. Managing Your Product Catalog RSS feed for this section
To get started adding new products, first we need to learn where how to navigate to the page that lists our products, and also the page that adds them. In your WordPress Dashboard, expand the Products section and click the Products link.
Up to this point we have focused on configuring the settings for WordPress and the e-Commerce plugin. Now it’s time to dig into the real meat-and-potatoes of any online store: building a catalog of products to sell.
Adding new products to the catalog is a fairly straightforward process, but there are still a number of options to consider. For instance, how does a T-shirt seller account for different sizes and colors? What about selling a digital versus a physical item? For someone with a large number of items, what elements are available to help organize and categorize them?
In this chapter we will start building products for our music shop that sells sheet music in both physical and digital formats.
