How to add products in Magento?

We will show you in this tutorial how to add products on your Magento store in a few simple steps.

The first step is to login to the administrator back-end of the store:

If you have installed Magento under a subfolder of the www root folder for an example “store” you should add this directory name before the index.php. When the back-end is completely rendered navigate to Catalog > Manage Products submenu:

Here you will see a list of all the products you have added to your store. You have the option to filter these in order to show only the products you need to modify or review. Also you have the option to add new items using the “Add Product” button available on the  top right corner of the page:

The two drop down menus on the first step are pretty much self-explanatory. As for the attributes set you may review:

The next menu will show you all the functions and settings you may add to a simple product:

The last menu will allow you to add customization options for the product. You may create for example a check box which will allow the customers to select a different color and it will change the overall price:

There is a huge number of options to modify the product and add extras or set discounts, etc. The developers of the script did their best to make it as easy as possible for you to manage the store with this huge number of functions.
