13. These are the product categories, you can have a product in multiple categories if you want

14. These are the product tags, it helps the search engines. This should be a whole phrase like “Fleetwood passenger window for sale” or “Cadillac emblem for sale”. Think of what people might be searching for on Google. Add in a lot of tags!

“Product Data” Section

This section has multiple sections. Its important to follow these steps and fill them out

15. The first section is the price section

23. This will alert you when stock is low, the default is two.

24. This is the shipping section

25. Shipping is calculated by weight. You should experiment with different zip codes and weights to make sure your shipping price is a “worst case scenario”. The dimensions would be good to help your shipping program give you a good quote.
