  1. Go to Products on the home page. 
  2. Click the Add Product button.
  3. Give your product a title.

  5. Enter the product's SKU.
  6. Check the Track Inventory box if you want to keep track of the product's stock, and enter the quantity.

  14. Turn on the On Sale toggle to display the product with an 'On Sale' tag across it.  

  15. To add photos of your product, scroll down to the Images section on the left and click Upload
  16. If your product comes in multiple variants with different color options or specs, scroll further down to the Attributes section and click Add Attribute to avoid adding everything one by one.
