PRODUCT – Add New (Variable Products)

Adding new products 📦

Once you click on the “Add New” button, you’ll be directed to this page.  

1) Product Classifier. Click this dropdown and select the classification for your product. For new sellers, we recommend leaving this as a SIMPLE product. However, most sellers will offer products or services with multiple variations (e.g. sizes, colours and other)

Variable Product: select this classification if your product has different variations or sizes.


You’ll then scroll to the ATTRIBUTE tab and tick the variant you’d like to add to the product – e.g. SIZE attribute (S, M, L, XL) or COLOUR. You can also add custom attributes (variations) to your product (Add -> Name -> Define values -> enable “used for variations” -> Save). Be sure to tick the “Active” box, and these attributes will appear on your product listing.


Once you’ve created the Attribute, click on the VARIATIONS button and you’ll be able to edit each variation, change pricing, images and more.
