Navigate to: PIM > Products
The PIM is a central location in Znode for Administrators to create and manage the products that appear in stores.
Simple products get associated with a single SKU. Simple products can be used to build Grouped, Bundled, Configurable, or Add-On products.
Grouped products are several SKUs that have been associated together. Customers can choose to purchase one, more than one, or all of the SKUs associated together. Think of a Grouped product as the SKU multi-select list.
Bundled Products work similar to Grouped, except the associated products can only be purchased as a bundle.
A configurable product is a single product with multiple variations. Each variation is a unique simple product. Inventory is tracked by the SKU of the simple product for each variation.
Adding a Product
Administrators can create new products by clicking the “Add New” button.
There are several options available to customize your product
Another method to add products is by using the bulk import tool
Editing a product
Administrators can follow the below steps to edit a product:
Edit the product details/associations
Click Save or Save & Close
Publish the product (optional)
Associating child products
It is important to associate child products to a parent product (i.e. Grouped, Bundled, and Configurable products) in order to view the child products on the webstore.
Administrators can also manage the sequence in which child products will be displayed on the web-store based on the Display Order column value for Grouped and Bundled products. They can manage the default child product/variant for Configurable products as well.
Admin users can make any default variant as a non-default variant. When there are no default variants available, a default variant will be randomly selected on the product details page of the respective configurable product.
Deleting a product
On the product list page, clicking the “Delete” icon deletes the product from the PIM. Once clicked the page reloads with the confirmation that the product is deleted.
Publishing a Product
Anytime an administrator makes a change to a product, the product must be published in order to make the change visible in the store.
There are two ways to publish a product:
Product list page - Click the publish icon on the product list page.
Edit product page - Click on the product edit and make the required changes. Click on the “Publish” button on the top right corner.
All products that are included in a catalog are also published during a full Catalog Publish.
