Products in an X-Cart-based store can be created manually, by import, or by creating copies of existing products (see cloning).

This article is about manual product creation.

To create a product manually, you need to specify its details using a special section in your store's back end. Of all the product details, only the product name is required. The rest of the product details can be configured later on.

To add a new product:

1. In your store’s Admin area, go to the products listing page (Catalog > Products).


2. Click the Add product button.


The “Add product” page opens.


3. Use the fields on the “Add product” page to provide information about the product.

The page contains many fields, but you do not have to set all of them right now: the only required field is the Product name, which means you only have to provide that value, whereas the rest of the product fields may be configured at any time later. See the Product Details guide for a detailed explanation of all the product page fields.

4. To save the product information you have provided, click Add product at the bottom of the page. The new product will be saved.

If necessary, you will be able to find this product on the products listing page (Catalog > Products) to do further editing or to specify some advanced product settings (See the Advanced Product Details guide for more info).
