The meaning of each section: 

Product Name: 
This will be the title on your product.  It becomes the products page title.  We recommend this not being too long. 

Product Description: 
This goes below your product, on the product page and usually is in more detail. Include everything you might want the customer to know about your product. If you put this product on backorder because you have to make it, this would be a good place to mention how long the turnaround would be. 

Also if you can not ship your item, here is a good place to tell the customers that this item is by local pick only, and that option will be seen in the cart.

If your item is customizable, please add a note to have the customers add the item to the cart. But in the cart “notes” have them add the customization details there.  You may want to add in this section, your limits on customization. 

Product Short Description:
This is what goes beside the image on the right and this is what shows up in the customer cart. This can be point form.

Product Image: 
The main image the customer sees when they come to your products page. This is also the image that is shown on the social media shop. 

Product Gallery:
Is where you upload multiple images of your item. Example different angles, closeups, defects (as is items) etc.

Product Categories: 

Select the appropriate categories that suit your item(s). This list will slowly populate. If you don’t see a category to suit your product, just put “Other”. The administrators of the page will take note of your item and create a category for your product and select them for you. 

Product Tags: 
Use keywords to describe your products, separate all by commas. ex, slippers, wool, knit etc.  This is good for customers who use the search bar to find your items, taking them to Google or our website.

For shipping, simple or variable products, please fill in the weights and dimensions of your products.

If the variations have different weights or sizes, fill in the weights and dimensions per variable. Otherwise just fill in the information on main shipping page and it will fill in the information per variant for you.

This is important for using the shipping apps, otherwise your product will use the default shipping price.

Things to Note:

Stock: 
If you are a vendor also located in the store, you must have an adequate amount of stock located at the store itself or be able to bring in the item within 24 hours. This is so that we can ship it within 24-48 hours, if someone places an order online. 

Backorder:
Alternatively to having the stock in store, you can mark as backorder. This will let your customers know that it will be time before it is sent out to ship. Unless an item needs to be made, then add that to the description. For example, This item is made on demand and takes up to 2 weeks to ship.

Examples of this:

  1. You are a vendor who buys from another company for resale
  2. You have to make the item, and deliver to ABW, to ship
  3. You have to make the item and ship for the customer
  4. You have the item, but have to deliver to ABW, to ship
