The base of each shop is the product list/.xls file. It contains all product data, such as price, description, image URL, product number etc. After it is created, the list should be uploaded in the editor. This can be done via the wizard, this should be a number of steps. Below will be explained step by step what needs to be done.

Again through wizard#

It may be that when you have uploaded the product list and you want to update this list, you must back through the wizard.
This can have two causes:

  • The number of columns has changed. This makes it necessary to go through the wizard again. However, it is true that the old settings are preserved, you do not need to go through everything again. The steps where nothing needs to be changed, you can click next step
  • Of a column structure is changed, for example, in a text column a cell has become in text instead of a cipher text. This makes it necessary to go through the wizard again. However, it is true that the old settings are preserved, you do not need to go through everything again.

Step 1#

As a first step, an overview is displayed of all the columns from the product list and which structure these columns. A number of columns must be a mandatory structure, eg, a price column should always be numeric and column images must always be an image structure. It is not possible in this step, the structure of the column to be adjusted. The system has the structure already established, if it needs to be changed, must be adapted to the product list and re-uploaded.

Step 2#

As a second step a number of columns have to be selected which are important for the proper functioning of the shop. These are:
  • Product Number: This column must contain unique product numbers, each product has a separate number needed for the proper functioning of this ordering products.
  • Price: The price column is a numeric column, there may therefore numbers only * occur. There should be no currency symbol included in this column.
  • Currency: here is the currency of the shop determined.
  • VAT: here determines how high the tax is.
  • Stock: This determines whether inventory of used.

Step 2b#

Here you can indicate whether there are corresponding products should be displayed. A choice can be made for any related products to be displayed on the screen more info and/or in the shopping cart. Related products can be useful to boost sales, eg if you have a sale of shoes perhaps you like to show socks or a corresponding product shoelaces.

If you so chose, the following points emerge:
  • Column corresponding products: here the column selected is where the corresponding related products are listed.
  • Title field: here is the column selected as a title.
  • Short description: here should be the column selected as a brief description.
  • Picture: here is the column chosen as images.
  • Fields: Displays the columns that are checked when the corresponding products should be displayed.

Step 3#

Here, it can be determined whether a menu is recorded. This is highly recommended to search the products of your shop easier. It is possible to display the menu of multi-layers. Eg in a clothing shop, the first layer womenswear, menswear and children. The second layer can then jackets, trousers, etc. For each layer a column from the product list.
If menu activation is chosen, there are two options:
  • sorting menu: this may alphabetically or excel or sequence.
  • menu fields: here the columns selected for the menu should be eligible. Note that here only the columns displayed, which actually set menu can be displayed. A column can not serve as a menu, if there is a choice. If a choice but a kind exists, there is no choice and the column will not be displayed.

Step 4#

Here you can indicate if you want to display a search block above the product list. Besides the menu is the search block a second opportunity to the customers to be able to look in the shop.
There are four different search blocks to display:
  • Quick Search
  • Category Search
  • Column search
  • Advanced Search

Step 5#

Here you can determine which fields of the product list should be displayed. The product list gives an overview of the products, the more info screen will show specific information about the product. It is therefore advisable not too many fields to display in the product list. A picture, price and a title is often enough for the customer enough information to give, if he/she wants more, can go to the more info screen.

Step 6#

Here you can specify which fields in the More Info screen should be displayed. The more info display designed to the customer specific information about the product, this is supplemented with pictures.

The layout of the moreinfo screen is: on the left the main photo is shown and on the right the info texts.

There are seven options that can be selected:
  • Choose title field: here the title of the selected product display
  • Choose short description: this text is entitled to stand
  • Select picture: the picture will be displayed on the left
  • Advanced Options: Here you can indicate whether there under the main photo more photos to be displayed. If you are more interested on this see Extra Pictures
  • Choose Long Description: This text will be displayed at the bottom, below the price and order button
  • Width: can be adjusted individually
  • Fields-select: the fields to be displayed in the more info screen, apart from the fields selected above.

Step 7#

Here you can specify whether if you want to use product variations. This will apply where a product has different sizes or colors, eg a garment. The customer can choose from different sizes, the product will be displayed once accompanied by a drop option for different sizes.

There are 3 options:
  • List boxes: here you can indicate whether or not in use should be made of the variations
  • Tone: here you can set whether the variations should be shown only on the more info screen or both on the product list as more info screen. We recommend only to show the variations on the more info screen
  • Grouping: here the column is chosen which is grouped. Suppose you have jackets, pants and sweaters in different sizes, then the column where these articles are regarded as grouping column
  • Fields choice: here the columns selected when selected, so eg the column sizes.

Note: The column that is chosen by grouping on can not also be selected in the selection fields, these columns must always be different.

Step 8#

As a last step, the order options can be set so that customers can order. A choice can be made from an order button only on the more info screen or on both the product list and the more info screen.

Below are two options:
  • Input in order button: This can be set if an input field is shown where the customer may increase the number or that the number is always 1 ordered.
  • Cart: here can be set which fields are displayed in the shopping cart. Product Number and price are the basic fields, this will always be shown, in step 2, these selected. When defining the fields can be selected who else of interest, eg short description, so the customer knows what they ordered.
