Products

A product is an individual item for sale in a Dremus store.

Products are often physical goods, but they can also be a digital download (such as a movie, music or ebook file), or a service (equipment rental, work for hire, customization of another product or an extended warranty).

The complete list of your store products can be found under Products. If this is your first time in the Product section, you will notice the example products left over from the setup. These products can be used to experiment with and explore our features before launching your store. You will eventually need to delete these products to make room for your store's products.

Filters can help you sort through your products and are available at the bottom of the page. These are 'live filters' which will sort the data without re-loading the page, removing the text will clear the filter.

  • Product Name the first letters of the word to search
  • Model the model or SKU ID for the product or group of products

  • Status products which are enabled or disabled (On/Off)

  • Name the variant name, e.g. "Size"
  • Sort you may choose what order the variants are presented

And then add however many values for each variant (e.g. Small, Medium, Large...)

  • Name the value name, e.g. "Medium"
  • Model the unique identifier for this variant value
  • Quantity the amount of stock on hand for this variant value
  • Subtract would you like the variant value quantity to be reduced with each order?
  • Prefix should the price assigned to this value be added or subtracted from the base price?
  • Price the incremental amount that will be added to/subtract from the base price
  • Sort you may choose what order the values are presented

Tags can be applied to the product which are then used in the store search, categorization or tag clouds. Separate each tag with a comma.

The product may be assigned to many collections. Check each collection you'd like the product to appear in.

Product sort will determine what order the the item will appear in a collection or search result. The lower the value will mean it has a higher priority.

This is the base stock quantity for the product. If you're using variants and assigning quantity values there is no need to update the base quantity.

Product variant values may also be assigned stock quantity, these will be reduced accordingly with each order. If you're populating these, there is no need to update the above base quantity - it will update automatically.

Lastly, to ensure stock is deducted after each order enable the Stock Subtract option under Shop Settings.
