Adding a Simple Product

How to add Products to your Store Profile

Watch the video guide and follow the steps below explaining how to list your products.

Step 1: Click Add Product in the Left Hand Navigation


Step 2: Select Product Category

Select the category that best suits your products.

  • You must select last categories level
    • YES: Mens > Clothing > Shirts > T-Shirts
    • NO: Mens > Clothing
  • Your products will automatically appear in corresponding higher level categories up the chain


You can choose between Simple and Configurable Products.

Simple Products

A Simple Product is a basic product, with no different options for the customer to choose such as colour or size. For example, if you are selling a t-shirt, there is no option for S, M or L.

Configurable Products

Configurable Products are simple products with options for the customer. For example, if you sell the same t-shirt in multiple colours and sizes, configurable products allow you to list the different size and colour options for your customer to choose in the one product, rather than having to look through multiple simple products to find the right size.

Step 3: Enter Product Details

Product Name: The name of your product.

Description: Information about your product that customers may want to know about your product.

Short Description: A brief description of your product, max 160 characters (this is not a mandatory field to complete).

Price: The price of your product.

Special Price: If you are applying a discount to your product, please select the discounted price here.  There is an option to set the dates for when the discounted price will start and finish.

Stock: Number of units in stock.

Stock Availability: In stock or out of stock if the product is no longer available.

SKU: This is the unique identified you use for inventory and other purposes.  If you do not have SKUs, please ensure that you make one that is appropriate for your products that you will use with Buy Aussie Now, as this is mandatory for listing.  A SKU can be any combination or numbers and letters and must be 3 characters or more.

Weight: An estimate weight of your product (excluding packaging).

URL Key: This will automatically generate based on the name of the product, this can be used if you would like the product URL to differ from the product name.

Meta Title: How your product will appear in search engines.

Meta Keywords: Although some search engines ignore meta keywords, others continue to use them. The current best practice is to incorporate high-value keywords in the meta title and meta description.


Meta Description: Meta descriptions provide a brief overview of the product page for search results listings. Ideally, a meta description should be between 150-160 characters in length. This should describe the tangible benefit of your product.

Allowed Product Qty: The maximum number of products you will allow a single person to purchase in one transaction.

Product Images: Ideally, product images should be 700x700. 

Product Attributes: There are optional Attribute options related to the Attribute Set you choose. For example Women's Shoe Size is an option of the Attribute Set Women's Shoes.

These attributes are important because they provide the information to allow shoppers to search by filter.

The fields are optional which means you only need to update the Attributes that are relevant to your product.

Once the product information is entered please ensure you CLICK SAVE.
