Adding Your First Product

When you first install SoftSlate Commerce, it will be fully functional, but unless you've inserted the test data during installation, there will be no products in the store for your customers to buy. Follow these basic steps to add your first product and category to the store so you can start selling.

Example 2.1. Adding a Product

  1. Log into the SoftSlate Commerce administrator using the user name and password you created in the Installer tool. The administrator application is located at /softslate/administrator
  2. Once logged in, navigate to Product Catalog -> Products. Click the "Add New Record" link at the top of the screen to go to the add new product form.
  3. After adding the product, create a category to place the product in, so it will show up in the store's category tree. Navigate to Product Catalog -> Categories, and click the "Add New Record" link to add a category to the store.
  4. Now assign your new product to the category you created:

    1. Navigate to Product Catalog -> Categories .
    2. You'll see your new category in the table in the center of the screen. Click the "Details" link next to it.
    3. On the next screen, click the "Products" tab to view the products assigned to the category. Click the "Unassigned" tab to find the new product.
    4. You should see your new product in the table in the center of the screen. Check the checkbox under the "Assigned" column next to the product.
    5. Click the "Update" button to save the change.
