Please ensure you have the following ready to upload your products:

Step by step:
Please read these points before watching the video below.
Fields to be edited:
- Product Name – The name of your Product
- Product Long Description (Optional) – This description appears below your product and is useful if you have a lot of text to add. This is also where you can place your YouTube link if you have a video to show to your potential customers.
- Product Short Description – Be brief, but include all the information a customer might be interested in, like, what is it made of, how is it made and why your potential customer would like it.
- Product Data – Important: The only information required here is the price and sale price if needed. You may ignore the rest of the tabs.
- Product Category – Select from the list of categories relevant to your product.
- Product Image (Main Image) – Your service image may not be bigger than 500kb. (This will ensure that your product page loads quickly) If your image is too big you may use a free service like Image Optimizer or Compress Jpeg to make the file size smaller. Alternatively you can open the image editor on your computer (Paint or Preview). These system programs can reduce your image sizes. Square Images works best but your image needs to have dimensions bigger than 100px to crop perfectly. But do not worry, our administrators will have a good look beforepublishing your product.
- Product Gallery – These will appear below your product image and a good place to add supporting photos. Add as many as you like.
- You can add a video in the long description if you like – Just paste the YouTube link and your video will appear on the website, please include the “http://” part of the url.
