So once you have all of the previous steps completed the last thing you need to do is to upload your product catalogue. You should put time into organising this data offline before you try to upload online. Organise your products into categories as that is usually how your customers expect to find it organised on your website eg Shoes, HandBags, etc. Your products will need to have meta data which describes the product as per below :

  • Product Name
  • Product Description
  • Product Category
  • Product Image
  • Product Price
  • Product Tags eg Shoes, Womens, DKNY, Ireland
  • Product Attribute eg Size, Colour, Brand

We recommend organising your product catalog into an Excel Sheet in this way so that you are prepared for the manual product upload. Sometimes these excel sheets can even be imported into your shop but you will usually need help from your Web Designer do this. Either way the product upload takes time and you need to allow for that. You also need to think about how many products you should upload initially as you may not need to upload everything you sell to the website – just to get you going.
