Adding Product to UWeX Shop (III) – Adding a Simple Product

Simple product type covers the vast majority of any products you may sell. Simple products are shipped and have no options. For example, a faucet.

Access the Add New Product page and type in the product name and description in the specified boxes.


Below the description editor box, you see the Product Data meta box.

The Product Data meta box is where the majority of important data is added for your products.  Select the Simple Product in the panel by scrolling down the options on the top.



General section 

  • SKU – Stock keep unit (SKU) tracks products.
  • Price – Price your product here buy using Regular Price.   If you wanna go a promotion, you can use Sale Price.
    • Regular Price – Item’s normal/regular price.
    • Sale Price – Item’s discounted price that can then be scheduled for certain date ranges.


Inventory section

The inventory section allows you to manage stock for the product individually and define whether to allow back orders and more.


Just of note, ticking the Sold Individually checkbox limits the product to one per order.

Shipping section


  • Weight – Weight of the item.
  • Dimensions – Length, width and height for the item.
  • Shipping Class – Shipping classes are used by certain shipping methods to group similar products.

Linked Products section

Using up-sells and cross-sells, you can cross promote your products. They can be added by searching for a particular product and selecting the product from the dropdown list:


Up-sells are displayed on the product details page. These are products that you may wish to encourage users to upgrade, based on the product they are currently viewing. For example, if the user is viewing the laminate product listing page, you may want to display hardwood on that same page as an up-sell.

Cross-sells are products that are displayed with the cart and related to the user’s cart contents. As an example, if the user adds a Nintendo DS to their cart, you may want to suggest they purchase a spare stylus when they arrive at the cart page.

Attributes section

On the Attributes tab, you can assign details to a product. Once you have chosen an attribute from the select box, click add and apply the terms attached to that attribute to the product. You can hide the attribute on the frontend by leaving the Visible checkbox unticked. Custom attributes can also be applied by choosing ‘Custom product attribute’ from the select box. These are added at the product level and won’t be available in layered navigation or other products.


Add a short product description. This typically appears next to product imagery on the listing page, and the long description appears in the Product Description tab.



On the right-hand side of the Add New Product panel, there are product categories in which you can place your product. You can also assign product tags in the same way.


Product images

You can add a main image and a gallery of images on the right part of the panel. (see the bottom part of the above picture.)
