Creating products as a vendor using Sikkim Mart is super easy. After you register as a vendor on our marketplace, they can easily create products and customize them from an intuitive dashboard.
So check out the documentation to know the process of creating products:-
Create a product from the Vendor dashboard
To create a product, navigate to the vendor dashboard. And then click on Products from the left menu. After that click on the Add New Products button from the top right corner.
You’ll get a new window where you will be able to create a new product giving all the details only.
The common information about a product are the title, price, description. Discount price is optional. You can even schedule discounts for a certain amount of time. You can enter a starting date and end date to apply automatic discounts to your product.
By default, category selection is singular. That is why there is a drop-down field to select a category. This should be the standard-setting. It is recommended to have only one category assigned to a product. If you need to show your products based on multiple factors or for searching or sorting feature, you can use tags.
Vendors need to select the category from the drop-down.
Vendors will be able to create new product tags from the vendor dashboard.
Vendors click on Vendor Dashboard>Product>Add New Product. Under the Select Product Tags field, add a tag and Press Enter. The word or phrase will be added as a separate tag.
Selecting Product Type – Simple Product
These types of products are simple and have no variants. They are single and standalone products, which does not require any other information to define different variants.
Selecting Product Type – Variable Product
A variable product is a product that has different types of variants. For example, you might want to sell a dress which is available in 3 different colors and sizes. So this option will enable you to add those colors and sizes you need. You can add variations based on anything you like, perhaps material used or the stitching style.
Inventory and variants
This section holds a bit of complicated information. None of these fields are mandatory. If you do not need to add stock quantity and your is just a simple product, then you can totally skip this section.
What is SKU?
SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit. It should be a unique set of characters which will not match to any other product.
Enable Product Stock Management
Let’s say you have 10 pieces of the product and you don’t want to receive after orders are placed for 10 units. If you enable stock management and enter 10 in the quantity field, then after 10 units are ordered, this product will show a message that all the quantities are sold and there is no stock.
But, you might want to take some pre-orders before your next batch comes up. So you can Allow Back Order to let the customers place orders even if the product is out of stock.
