Edit your products individually


On the product management panel, you can customize the following information, concerning your online store products:

  • Product name
  • Product price, and strikethrough price, which you can activate or deactivate, by clicking on the appropriate button.
  • Categories, that can be displayed, by pressing the appropriate button. Every category can be deleted in just one click.
  • Stock
  • Product reference
  • Weight
  • Priority (to reorder the products)
  • Product publication status (visible or not visible), by clicking either on the eye icon, or on the crossed-out eye icon.
  • The Show button, that gives you access to product options, in a dedicated panel. Each option is customizable.


Product options with multiple choices

In case of a multiple choice option, you have access to:

  • A checkbox, at top left, to directly select all option values
  • A handle (arrows) allowing you to reorder the options of a product

You can also modify the following information:

Then, for each option value, you have access to:

And you will be able to customize:

Stock management for product options

Under the options panel, a Show stock button appears. By clicking on it, you can manage the stocks of the product variations, for which you checked the “Custom stock” option.
For each product variation, you have access to the following elements:

  • The names of the option values for the product variation (automatically generated)

NB : To display all product categories, click on the Show categories button.
To display the options and variations of all products, click on the Show all options button.
Lastly, to display all products, click on the button: Select all products on all pages.


Modify your products collectively

The two “Action” panels will allow you to mass edit your products and their options.
For the number fields, you can click on the buttons: Replace or Add to current value. For the last button, you have the possibility to use negative values or percentage.
