After installing osCommerce, one of the first things you will want to do is add a product, which can be accomplished in the Admin panel of osCommerce.
In this guide we will walk you through adding a product to your osCommerce store.

Adding a Product:

  1. Login to the Admin Section of osCommerce.
  2. Click the Catalog link in the navigation menu, then click the Categories/Products link.
  3. To enter the product within a category, click the folder next to it, then click the New Product button.
  4. You will then see a New Product menu, fill in the fields as needed. Below is a brief description of the options:
