If we want to sell products on our website, what information should we collect?

For each product to be listed in your shopping cart, you will need the:

  • product name
  • description
  • price
  • image, if applicable
  • product options, if any, and their changes to the price
  • shipping weight (for nondigital products)
  • your catalog number, i.e., any product code that you use for tracking that product
  • supplier's catalog number, if any, so we can reference the product from the supplier

It is best to gather all of this information in a spreadsheet, with a column for each of the items above. Also get at least one image for each product, preferably in PNG format, of the highest quality possible.
