5. The next step is the addition of images. The images are separated into two categories: images to upload and current product image(s).

So to add an image, click the “Browse” button and add the image of your product. Your product may contain as many images that you want.

7. The last fields to fill are the dimensions of the product, inventory and taxes. The dimensions are required if you use a shipping module such as Canada Post, Purolator or Dicom. If you wish to display the dimensions of your product, check “Show dimensions on product page?” and the system will do it for you.
N.B. If you forgo to insert your product’s dimensions, the dimensions by default will be 0.1. This may cause differences between the actual shipping fee and the one shown on your online store, so please enter the correct information if you use one of the modules mentioned above.
