334: Creating a new Manufacturer in OpenCart 1.5

OpenCart allows you to create “manufacturers” to apply to your products you are selling. Anytime you create a manufacturer in OpenCart, the system allows you to apply products to them. If a customer wants to view all products for a specific manufacturer they can do so. By adding manufacturers to products this can help your website visitors find products easily. Setting up a new manufacturer is done in the OpenCart Dashboard.

  1. Log into your OpenCart Dashboard
  2. Go to Catalog >> Manufacturers
  3. opencart_man_3

  4. Click “Insert” in the top right corner
  5. Fill in the Manufacturer name
  6. Fill in the SEO Keyword
  7. Select an Image for the manufacturer, you may need to upload an image
  8. opencart_man_2

  9. Click “Save

At this point, you can edit any existing products or add new products with this manufacturer.
