One of the most crucial things that you need to do is publishing your products into your online store. If you are a beginner, no need to worry because adding products to Shopify is quite simple. All product details can be adjusted on one single page, eliminating the need to click through many tabs. In this article, we will guide you how to add products to Shopify easily. 

Step 1: Log in your Shopify store account

Step 2: Add product details 

From your Shopify admin, please click on Products > All products > Add Product. 

You can now fill in all information about your product to make a sale. The information you add about a product influences how it is displayed to customers, makes it easier for you to arrange your products, and aids customers in finding them. Product details normally consist of 

  • Title
  • Description
  • Media
  • Pricing
  • Inventory
  • Shipping
  • Variants
  • Search engine listing preview

However, you do not need to include all details for each product.

Add product title and description 

add product tittle and description

Title is the product name that you want to showcase to customers. The product title should be brief and straightforward.

Description is the place to briefly introduce your product with rich text. You should customize this part with unique content to attract customers’ attention and optimize search engines. 

Media can be images, 3D models, and videos showing your customers what the product looks like. You should upload many product photos with all variants so that customers can easily observe. 

Add pricing, inventory and shipping information 

It is important to specify the product price on the product pages. Carefully consider your product prices. High prices may make customers hesitate to buy products or not. But low prices hurt your revenues.
