Quick Shopping Cart Help

Working with products

Products are individual items you offer on your Quick Shopping Cart® storefront which may include physical goods, digital downloads, and groups of products (called bundles).

Defining your products is the single most important part of creating your online store. Using the Product Editor, you can quickly add products to your catalog and then return to configure advanced product information at any time. You can also copy, edit, and delete existing products.
