  2. Click Products. If you’re a new seller, click Your shop.
  3. Click Add new product

Selecting Product Type – Simple Product

These types of products are simple and have no variants. They are single and standalone products, which does not require any other information to define different variants.

To learn about How to create a simple product go through this tutorial.

Selecting Product Type – Variable Product

A variable product is a product that has different types of variants. For example, you might want to sell a dress that is available in 3 different colors and sizes. So this option will enable you to add the colors and sizes you need. You can add variations based on anything you like, perhaps the material used or the stitching style.

Selecting Product Type – Grouped Product

To learn about the grouped product go through this tutorial. 

Downloadable Product

If you are selling photos, music, software or any digital product, then this is the option to use. If you click on the Add File button, three more fields will be added.

The name field defines what the downloaded file name should be. We are letting you define that because you might name the original file to something like “new-album-updated-jan-12.zip” and you want the user to download the file as “New Album”. So this option will be useful for you to serve and organize better.

If you are serving the files from your very own site, then you can click on choose file and select. But you can also serve the file from Dropbox, Google Drive or some other file hosting site you like.

To learn about How to create a downloadable product go through this tutorial.

Select Product Type – External/Affiliate Product

You can create External/Affiliate products on Osbisy. That way you can create products and redirect them to your Affiliate sites.

While creating a product, you need to select the External/Affiliate product type from the dropdown menu.

Also, you need to add the link to your site in the URL section and define the button name.

Selecting Product Type – Grouped Product

Suppose you want to sell a music album. But you want to sell different tracks and visuals along with the album as a whole. Then you need to create a Grouped product.

To learn about the grouped product go through this tutorial.

Step 1: Add photos

To add photos to your listing, click Upload Product Image and Select Files to add files from your computer and the click ‘X’ to close the upload featured image. then Click  ‘+’ plus sign to add your photos into Add gallery image you recently add your Media Library.

Guidelines for listing photos

Your images should be at least 600 0r 800 pixels wide, but the height can vary. Don’t scale down your photos to a smaller size. Buyers like to zoom in on photos to see item details. Larger images let buyers zoom in more.

We recommend you use at least five images to help shoppers get a better feel for your item.

If you’d like to crop the full-size image that appears on your public listing page, click the pencil icon under your photo.
