Adding and Updating Products

Jazva Devs -

This article will introduce you to the product page and teach you how to add, edit and update your items manually.

Contents:


Overview

Your store wouldn’t be one without products, and Jazva offers a wide range of options for you to define and distinguish every item in your database. This document is best used after you have imported products from your channels and learned the basics of using Jazva.

Before you start growing your product database, we recommend familiarizing yourself with these articles to understand how products, variations and kits work in Jazva:

In Jazva, a base product is identified by a Product ID (PID). A product page will have 3 tabs: Details, Setup and Statistics.

If a base product has more than 1 variation, then each item variation will have its own Details page, named after its attribute and numbered with an Item ID (IID).
