Add a New ProductHow you can manage your store to add new products that are not in our database.
Sometimes there are items you want to offer that we don’t have in our database, when that happens, you can follow these simple instructions to add a new product.
From the products page, click “Add New Product”.
Choose the product type from the dropdown, this determines if it’s a comic, graphic novel, or anything else. Tax rates are tied to this, so making sure this is correct is important (example, some stores have exemptions on Graphic Novels).
Give the product a name (the title you want it to be shown as).
Next choose the category (Publisher) from the list of publishers. If the publisher is not listed, choose “Other Publishers”.
Add a description, this is usually the solicit information.
Add a SKU, this should be Publishername-Title, so for example, if I am adding “Batman the Long Halloween New Edition” from DC Comics, the sku would be:
Add the price.
Add the approximate weight (in grams), basically a comic is 100, a trade is 300 and then an extra 100 for every $10 it costs.
- Comic = 100
- GN $10 = 300
- GN $20 = 400
- GN $30 = 500
- GN $50 = 700
- GN $75 = 800
- GN $100 = 1200
- GN $125 = 150
Mark it as “Active” (put a checkbox here)
You can add an image. Images should be 500px wide by 750px tall.
Cut off Date is an optional field for FOC dates
Taxable, as long as this product is taxed, keep this checked
Discount exempt – if you do not want to offer your default discount
One time, if this is a one-shot or graphic novel, something you will only pull once.
Ignore Requested Removal, we’ll remove that shortly.
Everything else is optional. I recommend entering the Diamond Code, as it will be used in some of our upcoming updates.
Click “Create Product” and you are done.
