Hover your mouse over the Inventory tab and scroll down to select Product Listing
Click +Add Product (Orange button upper right hand corner)
Fill out all of the products details as thoroughly as possible
Unless you are selling a digital download, you should always select Normal Product.
SKU / Barcode are for your own reference so that’s at your discretion.
Always make sure to check requires shipping even if you have a pick up or local delivery option, this just ensures that the item is added to the shipping profile and is accounted for at time of check out. *If this isn’t checked it will create issues at checkout*
You should always track your inventory! Even if you have unlimited availability. If the item qty reaches zero it may appear as sold out on the site!
There is only one location at which to track inventory called, you guessed it! Inventory Tracking.

ALWAYS MAKE SURE YOU CHARGE TAXES ON THE PRODUCT!!!
Made Cleveland collects the sales tax and remits payment to the appropriate agencies so you don’t have to!
If you have this box unchecked for any reason and an item sells without collecting the tax, you will be charged and the sales tax will be deducted from your earnings. I’m sorry but thems the rules.
Variants can be used to allow a customer to easily select options for anything that modifies a product. Things like size, color, style, material, etc.
If you’re including variant(s) they must be added when you create the product. (If you go to add them after the fact then they won’t show up, and unfortunately you will have to create a new product.)
If you need to charge for shipping or are offering local pick up or delivery this is a great item for a variant as well!
Option Name would be things like: Color, Size, Style, Material, Shiping, etc. You can really make this whatever fits best with your offering! You can click the field option name and there will be a drop down of the usual suspects for you to select from. OR you can type your own! You can only have THREE options names max.
Option Value would be things like:
Color: Blue, Green, Yellow, Grey
Size: Small, Medium, Large, 2”x 4”,
