Accessing the Product Upload & Edit form

  1. Login to Dashboard / be already logged in
  2. Navigate to the Products section
  3. Click on one of the following:

    a. Product name in the table
    b. ‘Add Product’ button
    c. Edit product action
    d. Duplicate product action

Submitting for Approval 

  • When you are a) happy with the new product details,  b) all information has been added to the required fields, and c) there are no errors present, you can submit the new product for approval. 
  • Once submitted for approval, the product will have a Pending approval’ status label enabled. This will be visible in the product section table.
    • Pending approval products sit within the Draft status tab. A product cannot be edited whilst this label is present.
  • If the product is rejected during the approval process, the product will be labelled with ‘Changes needed’ status label. This can be seen in the product section table.
    • Rejected products sit within the Draft status tab.  
  • If a product is rejected and a member of staff adds a note, this will appear at the top of the form in a yellow box: Rejected products will also be highlighted in the Overview tab. Please see the example below.

  2. If a new Shopify product has been imported, the product will have a ‘Missing information’ status label enabled. This can be seen in the Draft tab in the product section table.
    a) This is because newly imported Shopify products are incomplete, because W&B requires additional information that Shopify does not collect. 
    b) This ‘Missing information’ label will only appear in the ‘Draft’ status tab.
  3. To note, existing products cannot be saved as a Draft. However, Brands can of course edit existing products and ‘Save & Submit’. Edits will automatically be approved. 

Duplicating a Product 

When clicking the ‘Duplicate Product’ at the top of the form, a new product form will appear. To note, the Product Name field will be empty. You are required to input a new name.

  • 1 primary category can be added. 
    • The primary category selected will impact the options presented in the following dropdowns & fields: 
      - Styles
      - Variant category dropdown within the Variant modal
  • 1 style can be selected using the dropdown.

    - If you do not, an error message will appear.
  • You must select at least 1 material - products cannot be saved / submitted without adding this information.

Colour 

  • 1 colour must be added. Only one colour can be added per product.
  • However, multiple colours can be selected, by checking the colours in the same dropdown, if the product is multicoloured. For example, the dress is black and white, then the you should select Black and White. 
    - This would ensure the swatch circle on the PDP is half white + half black.
  • If the product comes in different colour variants, another product will need to be created with the relevant Colour selected.
  • You can do this easily by duplicating the product and changing the colour. 
If the you already have an existing product created with a different colour (that has been saved and submitted), then you can link them by clicking on the Link Existing Colour button below. 
- This will ensure the Product's Colour Variant(s) show on the same product page on the website so customers can easily toggle between them.
