CREATE SINGLE OR VARIABLE PRODUCT LISTINGS
The very first step in creating a product listing is to go to the dashboard and click on “Product Manager“, then on “Add Product“The product creation option will appear on the right side of the dashboard. On this page, you’d basically need to add product details which will appear on your storefront and on your particular product’s page.
CREATE PRODUCT TITLE
Your product’s title is one of the first things that your customers will see. Make sure it’s accurate but informative.”
At the top-most area of your product creation page is where your Product Title is. Your product title identifies the specific item that you’re selling. Titles usually start with a brand, followed by the variant, then by quick specifics.
SHORT & LONG DESCRIPTIONS AND IMAGES
These elements compose the body of your product listing. This is where your customers will review your product and make decisions.The short description should contain a summary or a short enumeration of the product’s features. The main product description on the other hand should contain product specs and such. The product image should contain only the item and inclusions, and should be in high resolution. Gallery images should be uniform and are expected to be high-res as well.
CHOOSE SIMPLE PRODUCT TYPE
A Simple Product Type is a product with no variations like different colors or sizes. Choose this if your product comes only in one variation.
Choose “Simple product” by clicking on the dropdown menu next to the “Product Type” section heading. Simple products would have less options when compared to other types of products – like “Variable products”. For “Simple products”, you have to manage the stocks through the “Inventory” tab.
CHOOSE VARIABLE PRODUCT TYPE
Variable products are products with variations in color, size, storage capacity, fitment, and other attributes – depending on the item. When you opt to create a “Variable product”, the available tabs will change in comparison to the “Simple product” type. The “Variations” tab will become available. Here you’d be able to manage “Inventory” or stocks, “Price”, and unique “Images” for each variation. Please be aware though that you FIRST need to add Attributes (click the “Attribute” tab and pick & add specific attributes to your item) – before you tinker with “Variations”.
SELECT CATEGORIES & PRODUCT TAGS
Categories and product tags make your item easier to find within the iRent Mo marketplace. Make sure to select the correct category!
Aside from giving your store a neat and organized look – correct categorization makes your item easier to find within the hundreds of listings found inside the iRent Mo marketplace. On top of that, product tags help your customers easily find you through our “search” function. Separate your tags with coma (no space). Your customers will thank you for doing this.
CROSS-SELL OR UPSELL
Cross-sell your other products to increase your sales across your inventory. Also, for specific items – you can write policies (warranty, etc.)
Being able to cross-sell your other products is a boon. Take advantage by listing related items to the product you’re currently working on. Make sure that your customers will benefit from your recommendations. Try not to go over 4 cross-sells. Also, some of your items may have warranties, usage notices, and such – we have a “Policies” section for these instances.
