Navigate to Seller Dashboard on the upper right side of Mytindahan.net. Click on Products and then Add NewProducts button from the top right corner. It will open a new window where you will be able to create a new product very easily by providing the most important details only.
The common information about a product are the title, price, and description. Discounted price is optional. You can even schedule discounts for a certain period of time. Just enter the starting date and end date to apply automatic discounts to your product.
Both the categories and tags have to be created by Mytindahan.net admin. The seller can only select them from the dashboard. Because allowing sellers to create categories and tags might result into duplications.
By default, category selection is singular. That is why there is a dropdown field to select a category. This should be the standard setting. Because according to Google Webmaster Guidelines and other SEO and UX best practices, it is recommended to have only one category assigned to a product. If you need to show your products based on multiple factors or for searching or sorting feature, you can use tags.
As there can be thousands of tags in a site, we have placed a searching feature on the tags field. Let’s say you need to add a tag named “gift ideas”. So if you type 3 or more characters, the tag will appear below just like Google search. So only typing “gif” will bring “Gift Ideas” you can hit the down arrow ↓ on the keyboard or click on the result to add that in the field.
After You have provided all the required information, Click on the Save Product button. It will create the product and redirect you to the product edit page, where you will be able to add more information about your product.
After you have been redirected to the product edit page, there is a option to select product type. You can select either Simple or Variable product.

Inventory and variants
This section holds a bit complicated information. None of these fields are mandatory. If you do not need to add stock quantity and yours is just a simple product, then you can totally skip this section.
But if you are creating a downloadable product or selling a dress or t shirt, which has multiple sizes, then you should read this section carefully.
What is SKU?
SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit. It should be an unique set of characters which will not match to any other product.
Enable Product Stock Management
Let’s say you have 10 pieces of the product and you don’t want to receive after orders are placed for 10 units. If you enable stock management and enter 10 in the quantity field, then after 10 units are ordered, this product will show a message that all the quantities are sold and there is no stock.
But, you might want to take some pre-orders before your next batch comes up. So you can Allow Back Order to let the customers place orders even if the product is out of stock.
If you are selling photos, music, software or any digital product, then this is the option to use. If you click on the Add File button, three more fields will be added.
The name field defines what the downloaded file name should be. We are letting you to define that because you might name the original file to something like “new-album-updated-jan-12.zip” and you want the user to download the file as “New Album”. So this option will be useful for you to serve and organize better.
If you are serving the files from your very own site, then you can click on choose file and select. But you can also serve the file from Dropbox, Google Drive or some other file hosting site you like.
Mytindahan.net Marketplace has built in feature for seller’s own shipping/delivery option. This means seller will ship the product directly to the customer using our preferred couriers JRS and LBC. If your product requires shipping/delivery, please check Enable Shipping.
Seller should configure the default shipping/delivery option for his/her store by going through Seller Dashboard >>Setting>>Shipping.
Seller can also override default shipping cost for the product.
Visibility: The visibility option defines the privacy of the product. By default “Catalog and Search” is selected. But if you want the product to only appear on category listing page, search results or want to list as a hidden product, then you can select the option respectively.
If seller selects any other option than Catalog and Search then the product will not appear on the site other than the store page.
Purchase Note: If you want the customer to receive a custom message right after purchasing the product, you can paste that in the box.
Reviews: If the vendor does not want to receive reviews for the product from the customers, he can turn it on or off.
