eShop - Adding Attributes to a Product

This article applies to the Magicdust eShop 1.0. Click here for articles relating to Magicdust eShop 2.0.

Adding attributes to a product is useful if you are selling products which have a variable aspect to them, such as varying sizes or colours. Using attributes allows your customer to select the version of your product that they wish to purchase, such as a red shirt or shoes in size 9. Attributes also give you the option to change the price with varying options. For example a length of cable up to 100m might be $40 but up to 150m is $50. Attributes give you the option to integrate this feature.

  1. Click on categories & products and then click manage products

  2. Use the search feature to locate the product you wish to add the attribute to, or create a new product if you are yet to create one.

  3. Open the product and click on the "attributes" tab.

  4. Fill in the details under "Add a New Attribute"

    Attribute name: The name of the attribute, for example "size."

    Attribute caption: Instructions for the attribute, for example "select your size."

    Priority: used to order multiple attributes

    Attribute type: manage how the attribute displays, for example drop down, radio buttons or a text input field.

    Options: Only works for drop down and radio buttons. Type your attribute options. Type each option on a single line and then press enter for the next option. For example: Small (S), Medium (M), Large (L).

    Note: Tracking Inventory by the attribute allows you to track if a certain variation of the product runs out, for example all small shirts.

  5. Add a price modifier if required. To do this, add the increase (or decrease) in price in the options box next to each option.

  6. Click "add attribute"
  7. Save changes.

Note: you can add multiple attributes to one product by repeating the process to add a new attribute.
