How to add products?

There's multiple ways to add products. It can either be done via a product form (as demonstrated below), in bulk, or automatically when your vendors connect their online stores to the marketplace. 

In this article we will go through the steps a vendor follows to add products using a product form.

Step 1: Vendor navigates to Products, accessible from the main menu or dashboard. Vendor fills in all the relevant information in the product form and hits Submit. 

Step 2: Vendor lands on the product listing page, where they can see all of their products and status of each (New/Approved/Published). 

  • New - product added by vendor that hasn't yet been approved by a marketplace operator, hence not available for sale yet
  • Approved - product approved by marketplace operator.
    Please note: after the product is approved it still needs to be published in the marketplace operator's store by a marketplace operator to make it shoppable.

Step 3: Vendor receives an email, confirming they have submitted product(s) for review. 

Step 4: Marketplace operator approves or rejects products

Step 5: Vendor receives an email notification

Step 6: Marketplace operator makes products available for customers to buy in their marketplace/stores
