One of the keys to a successful online shop is selling items that are well-presented and well-organized online. You keep your inventory organized in your stores, and PayGoCart with WooCommerce is designed to bring that level of care to your website as well. All it takes is a few steps to get your inventory items organized, visible and ready to sell online.
To add items to your website, you must first find the inventory item you would like to add. To do so, click the Menu button at the top of your Menu Screen. In the drop-down menu, you can either click the Products button to go to the Products screen, or click the Magnifying Glass to the right of the Products button to search for the item.
For more information on adding items, see Adding Inventory to PayGo with the Inventory Quick Add Screen.
In the item’s Inventory Screen, click the PayGoCart button. This will take you to the PayGoCart Product Screen.
At the bottom half of the screen you will see the WooCommerce box. On the left side of the box, you can add the item’s Short Description, which is the blurb that will show up on a product category page, and the item’s Long Description, which is what will show up on the item’s individual page. You can also add an Image of the item by either uploading it from your computer or dragging and dropping.
You will also see several tabs:
In this tab, you will be able to set the Regular Price of the item, as well as a Sale Price (if you would like to put the item on sale). You can also add a Start and Stop date for the sale price to be in effect. You can also set the item’s Tax Status and Class in this tab.
In this tab you can also set publishing options. In the Status field, you can choose whether an item is to be Published, for Privateviewing only, Pending being posted on your site, or is still a Draft. You can also set the item’s Catalog Visibility, which will classify if the item is Visible on your website, found in the Catalog view, found with a Search, or is Hidden from viewing.
You can also choose if the item is to be a featured item on your site by clicking the Featured box, and you can add up to ten Tagsthat will increase your search engine visibility. The Slug field shows the item’s URL on your website (for instance, if you were to add an item, the slug would be “new-item” in the URL www.mysite.com/new-item) and will auto-populate.
This tab will control the amount of the item’s inventory that you would like to have available online. It features the item’s SKU(which will auto-populate), give you the choice to manually Manage Stock, set the Stock Quantity available online, allow for online Backorders, and whether or not the item can be Sold Individually, meaning that anyone ordering this item online would only be able to purchase one of the item per order.
In this tab, you can set shipping information for this item. There are fields for the item’s Weight in pounds, the product’s Dimensions, and what Shipping Class it would have to be shipped under.
Your PayGo software allows you to link items online to encourage both Up-Sells and Cross-Sells. You are able to search for items to add to either category in this tab.
In this tab, you can add Purchase Notes, what Menu Order the item would be found in, whether or not you would like to EnableReviews of the item, or if you’re selling a non-physical item, you can set what kind of Download Type it is (i.e. whether it’s a standard download, an application for a phone or tablet, or a music file).
This tab is where you can add an image of the item. You can either upload the image from your computer, or you can drag and drop an image into the image field.
This tab is where you can set preferences for your website. You can define which tags you would like on your website by clicking the Define Tags button. This will take you to the Master Tag List, where you can add tags that are relevant to your inventory by clicking the New button. When you define a new tag, click the Shopping Cart icon next to the Tag Name field, and the WooCommerce ID for that tag will auto-populate.
You can also define global attributes (Note: PayGoCart only supports Color and Size attributes at this time) that will apply to your website by clicking the Define Global Attributes button, and you can also define which terms that will apply to those global attributes by clicking the Define Attribute Terms button. However, the records for this screen are created automatically, so you shouldn’t have to utilize the features on the Attribute Terms screen.
When you have added all relevant information, click the Add/Update button at the top right of the screen. Your item will be added to your PayGoCart site, and a message to the right of the button will tell you the time and date the item was added.
