Create a Merchandise Product

Before you start creating products, be sure that you have created any necessary Brands, Product Types, Option Groups, and Product Attributes for your products.

Navigate to the Product listing page:

  • Click on Products from the Ultra Commerce navigation toolbar
  • Select Products.

The Product listing page displays all products that have been created. To start, we’ll create a Merchandise Product.

  • Click on the blue +Create button at the top right corner of the screen.
  • Select Merchandise Product from the drop-down.

The Create Product screen will appear.

  • Fill out the fields:
    • Product Type: Select the appropriate product type from the drop-down. There will be Product Types in the drop-down if you have created specific merchandise product types.
    • Brand: Select a Brand for the product if there is one associated with this product.
    • Product Name: Add in a product name, this field is required.
    • Product Code: Add in a product code that is a unique string (alphanumeric, no spaces, no special characters). This field is required.

    • Options: Select the options for the product by placing a check mark in the box to the left of the option. After the basic fields have been filled in, options that are available for choice will display.
  • Once all options have been selected and the basic fields are complete:
    • Click the blue Create Product button in the upper right-hand corner.
    • The product detail screen will display in view mode – indicated by the pencil Edit icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
