How to Add Products to Your Ecommerce Web Site

wp ecommerce adding products into wordpressAdding products to your store may sound difficult, but it actually is like filling out any form on the internet. You simply need to know what information is required, what goes where, and what the information goes in your admin area. These videos below are for using a plugin called WP-Ecommerce as your Ecommerce system within WordPress. Unless i have told you differently, this plugin is what you are using.

You’re always going to need to put the basics on any product into your admin area when adding a product:

  1. Product Name
  2. ID number
  3. Description
  4. Long Description
  5. Price
  6. Weight
  7. Dimensions

You may need to add in a variation of the product, something like size or color. If we talked about this in advance, I’ll have already set these up for you. If not, feel free to email me or even try it yourself. NOTE: you can’t break it by filling it out wrong. Just realize if your site is live, the information in the product should be correct!

Here is a very helpful video on how to add products to your WordPress Ecommerce web site.

    • Thanks for the compliment! I enjoyed seeing web sites in French for the very first time. I took one semester in College and fell in love with hte language after doing 4 years of Advanced AP Spanish in high school. It’s a goal of mine to learn French someday and visit hopefully! Enjoy your day! :)

  7. Tremendous issues here. I’m very glad to look your article. Thank you so much and I am looking forward to contact you. Will you please drop me a e-mail?

  8. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I figured I’d
    post to let you know. The design look great
    though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Kudos

    • Wow, thanks so much. I do the same when I find a mistake, i politely email the webmaster. I’ll look into it this week. Opera is kind of a fun browser, isn’t it? Just not that popular among clients of mine (none of them most likely have ever heard of it, and many don’t know what a browser is). Thanks!

  9. Whats up! I’m about to begin my own website and was wondering if you know where the best place to acquire a website url is? I’m not even sure if that’s what its known as? (I’m new to this) I’m referring to “”. Exactly how do I go about obtaining one of these for the website I’m building?

    • Hi Miami, Here’s what i recommend when choosing a hosting or domain provider:
      1. 24 hr customer service – that speaks your native language, and goes the extra mile to actually help you. Godaddy has good pricing and their service has always been fantastic for me. I give them tens on surveys all the time. Also, and are reuputable companies. Check what’s on sale at the time and CALL there sales department and have a conversation with on of their reps. Stick with one, don’t put one on Register and five on Godaddy, it’ll just confuse you. As far as adding products, it depends on your platform (how the site was built). I use WordPress, so that post is regarding that. Hope that helps. Email me if you want at and we can chat about it.
