When it comes to retail, new products are arriving nearly every day. Whether it be seasonal merchandise, a new line, or the latest additions to your own private label. Getting those products live on your eCommerce store quickly is key as inventory that sits unpromoted and unsold is costing you money.
Adding new products to your store should not be a cumbersome task. It should be simple enough that anyone in your front office should be able to do without involving someone from the IT department!
However, we can all agree that some eCommerce platforms make adding new products far more complex than it needs to be.
BigCommerce has simplified the process of adding a new product to your online store so much so that it can be accomplished in just a few minutes. Just gather up as much information about the item as you can – including UPC, manufacturer part number, ISBN, ingredients, etc – as well as a unique product description, pricing information, product weight, and other item specific information and you’re ready to begin.
In this video, Don Cole will walk you through the process of adding a new item to your BigCommerce store via your store’s control panel / manager. Watch the process in the video below:
We told you it was simple! Of course, if you’re adding a large number of new products and want to do them through a bulk file upload, you can do that too! We’ll cover that process in a separate training video.
