Adding Products To Your Store
This is a step by step guide on how to upload products to your website.
Let’s get started!
At the top of the page, you should see a grey bar with Design Library, Add Product, Product Catalog, Settings, and App Help.
Click on Add Product.
A new window will open. Choose from 3 decorative methods (Direct To Garment, Dye Sublimation, or Embroidery).
For this guide, we will select Direct To Garment.
Then select your design placement (Front Only, Left Chest Only, Back Only, Left Chest and Back, or Front and Back).
For this guide, we will select Front Only.
Once you are done selecting your desired design placement, you will choose your products.
You can search for products by 4 different methods (Gender, Product, Brand, or Sort By).
When you have decided on what product you want to add to your store, hover over the product until you see Click to Edit/Add.
Click on Click to Edit/Add.
You will be redirected to a pop-up page where you can make edits to the product of your choosing.
- Rename your product title
- Choose colors and sizes
- Edit your product description
- Add product tags
- Assign to a collection
You can create up to 100 variants for a single product. In case you are confused about what Variant is, check out Variants in the Shopify help center for more information.
Once you are all set with your edits, click on Save Product.
Click on Next.
A new pop-up window will open. Click on Continue Without Saving.
You will be redirected to a page to select your design.
Hover over the desired design that you would like to use and click on Click to Add.
Proceed to click on Next.
In Product Details, you can add/remove colors and sizes.
In Design Position, you can reposition your design manually. You have three choices (Full Front, Left Chest, or Customize).
With Customize option, you can scale and use arrows keys to reposition your design and preview your design in a different color.
When you are satisfied with how everything looks, click Export Settings.
Select Export Product Description to publish directly to your website (products will automatically become live).
We ask you to upload as PNG, select Filename + Product/Group Title.
Click Export to upload your products directly to your website.
Adding Multiple Products as a Single Product
Want to list one design on multiple products? Here is a step by step guide on how to list garments together in one product listing!
Select the products you want to list and then make sure you have Viewing Selected Products turned on and then select Single Product in the dropdown.
The Product Title you assigned will be the product name for the products selected.
Note: You are only able to group products together under 1 product listing if it is the same exact design on multiple products in your CustomCat app.
Export Single Product Listing
Once your products are selected, go ahead and add the designs. You will see you now have one product title with multiple products assigned. You can change the Export Settings to display different options.
How to Setup An Export Template
Start by going through and setting up a product. You can change the price of the garment filename, add tags, and modify anything you want to change. When finished, click Next, and a pop-up will appear asking to Save Products to Export Template. This will save all the changes you’ve made and allow you to use it later when uploading the same product again. Give your export template a name and click Save Template.
How To Use Export Templates
When going to add more products, you can access your Export Templates using the dropdown. Don’t have a use for a template? Get rid of it by clicking on the red ‘x’.
Once you select the template you want to use, it will skip over the add products phase and take you straight to your design library to choose designs.
Exporting these three products takes less time than it did to set up the export. Get you exports up and start uploading tons of products quick and easy!
