Commonoperation on Products
In the products section, you will find the list of the uploaded products. This section has every option that is required to monitor your products. Go to the Products >Products section in StoreHippo Admin Panel. You will see the list of all products in your store. You can manage and perform operations on your products here.
All the operations on products are described below:
When a product has been added to your store, you can also edit the details later. You can make changes to the complete profile of the product. There are two ways by which a product’s details can be edited after it has been saved.
Method-1: In the products list, click on the product name to open the editing options.
Method-2: Click on the ellipsis button on the product that you want to edit. Choose the Edit option from the drop-down.
The product details are opened where you can edit them. Click on the Save or Save and continue button to store the details when you are done editing. You can also view the product in the real time when you edit it by clicking on View Product button.
Note: You can edit products listed under all the sections – Publish, Unpublish, Pending Approval and Rejected.
To delete a product, click on the ellipsis button on the product which you want to delete and choose the Deleteoption from the drop-down.
If there are many products that you don’t want in your store, you can delete them in bulk. You can delete products in bulk either through CSV file or admin panel. To delete products from the admin panel, select the checkbox on the top bar of the product list as illustrated in the image given below:
After you click on the checkbox button, an ellipsis button appears on the top bar. Click on the ellipsis button and choose the delete option to bulk delete the products.
If you want to delete a few products, select the checkbox of the individual products. After selection, choose the delete option from the drop-down menu to delete the selected products.
Sometimes you might want to duplicate a product that you have created rather than entering all of the details again. This can save your time, as you'll only need to update the product name, SKU and few other details that are different. You can click on the ellipsis button and choose the duplicate option from the drop-down menu. Provide the SKU in thedialogbox and click on Duplicate. Your product will be duplicated.
To make your products appear on the storefront, you need to publish your products. You can publish a product by two methods:
Method-1: Add/Edit a product and click on the checkbox of the Publish field.
Method-2: Go to the Unpublished tab of products and turn on the publish slider to publish an unpublished product.
In case, you temporarily do not want to sell a product or the product is out of stock and might take time in sourcing it again, you can use the Unpublish functionality. You can hide a product from your store at your convenience by turning off the Publish slider in the Published tab.
Once a product is unpublished or hidden, it automatically gets removed from the Published tab and is added to the Unpublished tab.
Another way to do the same is, edit the product and uncheck the Publish checkbox to unpublish a product.
Approval option is provided to admin to approve products added by different sellers. Admin can approve some products or all products at one click. To approve a product, go to the Pending approval/Rejected tab under products and select the approve option from the drop-down menu.
Admin can reject product added by a seller if he doesn’t want that product to be listed at frontend. To reject a product, go to the published/unpublished/pending approval tab under products and select the reject option from the drop-down menu.
Products added by the seller which need admin’s approval are listed under pending approval list. The products remain on the list until the admin approves/rejects the products. You can edit a product and change the status of "approve" field under Sellers tab to move a product to pending approval list.
