ADD/EDIT a Catalog Item
To edit/add items from the web site, you must first login as an administrator and click on EDIT.
To add Items to the shopping cart, Click on the “Add an Item” icon, which is directly underneath the last listed item already in your shopping cart on the current web page. This will open up a new window where you will enter detailed information about your item.
Details TabHere you will enter the name of your item, a full description of the item (as it will appear on the details page for that item) and an overview (a shorter description that will appear in a list of items for sale). Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Features TabSelect this tab to block ordering of this item, if desired, and to choose Item Category. Additional features you can control from here, which are not required unless you want them, include adding Item Numbers and UPC codes and entering the “Quantity on Hand” and “Low Quantity Alarm” for inventory management. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Images TabSelect this tab to add pictures for your items. Next to “Image” put your cursor in the empty text box and click on BROWSE to find the file for the picture on your computer that you want to appear on the details page. You can make the image any size you wish, but we recommend a size of approximately 400 X 400 pixels. Next to “Thumbnail” repeat this process to upload the smaller image that will appear in the item listings. We recommend that you keep all of the thumbnail images the same size for design clarity and no larger than 75 X 75 pixels. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Select this tab to offer different choices for a specific item, such as:
size: small, medium, large
color: red, blue, green
Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Pricing TabSelect this tab to input the various prices for a particular item, including the regular price, sale price (which applies if the “On Sale” box is checked), or the custom price (which is available to certain groups as specified under Group Policies in the Shopping Cart Settings). Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Receipt TabUse this tab if you want to provide unique text for this item on the purchase receipt. For example, you might use this field to give custom instructions or download links. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Shipping TabOn this tab make sure there is a check mark in the “Shipping Required” box, if it is an item that you will ship. Also, enter the item weight, which can be used to calculate shipping charges. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Source TabOn this tab you can select the name of the company that supplied the item. For a company to appear in this drop down list, you must first add the company under “Manage Users” and then “Organizations” in the Navigator on ADMIN HOME. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Subscriptions TabUse this tab if your item is a subscription to something, such as a magazine. Here you will choose the group that this subscription applies to and the length of the subscription (in days). Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
Meta Content TabHere you will enter a page title for this item’s web page and a brief description of the item. Click on SAVE or OK when you are done making changes.
