E-commerce features and functions offer drag-and-drop functionalities, a wide variety of building blocks, and a variety of themes to improve user attention. They are also very effective and user-friendly. Users can create e-commerce entities in a few simple steps.

In this blog, we'll go over the steps involved in selling a product using the features and functionalities of the Odoo 16 platform.  The activities involved in selling a product resemble those of the Events, Sales, and Purchase Modules to some extent. Additionally, the form configuration resembles the fundamental Odoo forms.

First of all, We can create a new product for sale using the “Products” section from the “E-commerce” menu illustrated in the below picture.


The “Products’ menu will open a dashboard view consists the list of various products that have already been created and arranged in a Kanban view. We can also change the view by clicking on the other visualization icons provided in the upper right corner of the form view.


We can create a new product for sale by clicking on the “NEW” button under the “Products” title, which will open a form view where we can create any new product for sale using the form view, as shown in the below screenshot.


As we can see from the screenshot illustration, the process of creating and managing a product is very similar to how products are configured in the modules, such as sales, purchases, inventories, and rentals.

Users must provide the product name and details on the product configuration form and have to fill in the six categories shown in the form, such as,

1. General Information

2. Attributes & Variants

3. Sales

4. Purchase

5. Inventory

6. Accounting

General Information

In this section, we need to fill in the basic product details, including Product type, Invoicing Policy, Unit of measure, Purchase unit of measure, Sales Price, Customer Taxes, Cost, Product Category, Internal Reference, Barcode, Product Tags, and Company Details.

The sales category consists of various fields related to upselling & Cross-Sell, Point Of Sale, E-commerce Shop, Sales Description, and Extra Product Media.


Users can add Optional product details, Accessory Products, and Alternative Products in the Upsell & Cross-sell section.



In this category, Users can provide vendor information such as Vendor Name, Vendor Bill, Taxes, Control Policy, and Purchase Description. We can select the vendor name from the “Add a Line” drop-down section provided under the “Vendor” form, as shown in the screenshot above.


The inventory section contains four sections Operations, Logistics, Description for Receipts, and Description for Delivery Orders.


We can list the Product Routes and the name of the User Responsible for this Product. 

Also, provide the weight, Volume, Customer Lead Time, HS Code, Origin of Goods, Description for Receipts, and Description for Delivery Orders as shown in the above screengrab.


The Accounting section consists of the Recievebles section and the Payables section, where the users have to mention the Income Account, Expense Account, and Price Difference Account, as shown in the screenshot below.


Users can select the bank accounts from the dropdown list corresponding to the respective fields or add a new account.

After editing the required details, save the changes using the save icon provided in the upper left corner of the form view. And you can check the website preview and publish the product for sale using the “Go To Website” option provided in the form menu, as depicted below.


From the website preview, We can edit the website settings, change themes, and edit templates using the vast range of editing tools provided by the Odoo platform.


We can publish the created product from the website page's main menu, as shown in the screen capture below.


Users can publish their products by simply clicking the "Unpublished" button; as soon as they do, the button's status changes to "Published," and it turns green.
