You certainly know, PrestaShop is a software that allows you to create an online ecommerce store. We introduced you earlier how to install the latter. Now, I will show you how to add products on it.
This tutorial was made on version 1.6.x of PrestaShop. You will probably notice a slight difference with the previous versions. First of all, you have to access the catalog interface.
By clicking on it, you will access the page that lists all the different products available in your store. To add a new product, you must click on the button " Add new product ».
Presentation of the interface for adding products
On the new page, you can notice that the latter is composed of several tabs. Some tabs will require product registration before they can be accessed.
The "Information" tab
In this tab, you must provide all the information about your product, that is to say :
