Adding Product Images

All product images are 800 x 800 pixels. One image is need for each product. It is entered as the “Featured Image”. WordPress will generate all thumbnails from that single image. It is recommend that you create the image with a one pixel border if the background is white or is a light color.

If a product has variations and you wish to display a different image for each variation, it must be added in the variation section. Expand all variations to reveal the details of each.

How to Identify the Product Type

The icon under the “shopping cart” column on the product listing page is a quick way to identify whether the product is “simple” or “variable”.

This indicates a “simple” product

What are Product Tags and How Do I Use Them?

Let’s compare your Web site to a non-fiction book. The table of contents would correspond to your product categories, whereas, tags are the equivalent of the book’s index.

Tags are a way of grouping products by some similiarity such as shape (round soaps), ingredients (lavender) or relationship (soap and soap dishes). They are useful in organizing products for up-selling, cross-selling and related.

Tagging can be a useful method of navigating around your site and is a good way to increase user engagement.

What are Related Products?

“Related Products” is a section at the bottom of the product page that pulls other products from your store that share the same tags or categories as the current product. You, as the store owner, must decide “how” they are related. (See Product Tags above)

How to Organize Products

Navigate to Products, then click Sorting.

When organizing products, it is best to work with a subset such as category. Start by clicking on the Products tab on the WordPress dashboard. Then select a category from the Category pulldown list. Now click Filter. From this page, you can simply drag and drop the product rows to reorder them.
