In the Odoo ERP system, the user can configure new products for the eCommerce site with the help of the Website module

In this blog, we will be looking at the configuration of products for the eCommerce page with the help of the Odoo Website module.

The eCommerce module in Odoo works integrated with the Website module. So, you can easily manage all eCommerce related activities from the Website module itself. Make sure that you have installed the eCommerce module from the Odoo AppStore in order to operate the module from the Website module. In Odoo, you can configure products for your eCommerce site from the backend as well as the frontend. We are going to discuss both of these methods in this blog so that you will be able to understand how Odoo simplifies the product configuration for users.

The product configuration from the backend can be done with the help of the Product menu given in the main menu bar of the Website module. The method is similar to that of the product configuration in the Sales, Purchase, Inventory, and Rental modules. You can use the Create button to create a new record of a product. As you can see in the image below, you will get a product configuration window where you can define the name of the product and additional information in the General Information, Attributes & Variants, Sales, Purchase, Inventory, Accounting, and eBay tabs.

In order to enhance the view on the eCommerce page, you are allowed to add images of the product in the specified field. Mention the type of product you are configuring for your eCommerce page in the Product Type field. The Invoicing Policy can be set on ordered quantity or delivered quantity. In the corresponding fields, you can specify the UoM, Purchase UoM, Sales Price, Customer Taxes, TaxCloud Category, Cost, Product Category, Internal Reference, Barcode, NCM Code, and Company.

Sometimes a product may contain various attributes and variants. You can specify those variants and attributes in the respective field as marked in the image below.

Providing different variants of a product will be helpful for customers to select the suitable one that will also improve your online sales.

The Sales tab includes important fields to define that help to improve online sales. Upselling and Cross-Selling methods will help the company attract customers' attention to the products on your website. You can provide Optional Products to customers that compliment the main product while adding a product to their cart. Similarly, Accessory Products can be used to increase cross-selling. This strategy will give suggested accessories to customers before completing the payment process.

Alternative Products are used as an upselling strategy that suggests alternative products to the customers on the product page. Additionally, mention the Website on which you want to publish the product, Website Sequence, Categories to which this product can be added, and Ribbons. You can inform customers regarding the status of the product using Ribbons like New, Limited Stock, Out of Stock, etc. If you want to make this product available in PoS, activate the PoS field. A description of the product can be added in the Sales Description tab.

Now, let’s move on to the Purchase tab. As you can see in the image below, the list of vendors of this particular product can be specified using the Add a Line button along with the details of Subcontracted, Currency, Quantity, Unity of Measures, Price, and Delivery Lead Time.
