Products are the physical goods, digital files, and services that you sell. You can sell products that you manufacture yourself, resell products of other suppliers, or use dropshipping services.

You add a product by entering product details and uploading product images. If your product has options, like size or color, then you can add a variation for each combination of options. You can also group your products into categories to make it easier for customers to find them in your store.

Duplicate products

When you add several products with many similarities, duplication can help speed up the entry process and save you time. By copying a product, you can modify specific changes instead of repeatedly filling out the product information.

If you want to add options to a product, such as color or size, then add a variation to the existing product instead of duplicating the product.

Delete products

You can delete a single product, or delete multiple products at once using a bulk action. When you delete a product, it's permanently removed from the store. Deleted products can't be restored.

If you run out of stock or no longer want to display a product for any reason, but don’t want to permanently delete it from your store, then you can disable the product availability instead.

If you want to remove a product from a category, you can unassign the product from this category. If you want to remove products from the Featured Products section only, you should remove these products from the default Store Front Page category.

To permanently delete a product from your catalog:

1. From your Store Manager, go to Catalog → Products.

2. Choose a product you want to delete.

3. Click Edit Product, then select Delete Product.
