Adding Products

Now that your store is setup it’s time to add some products! Head on over to the Products page in your Seller Dashboard and click Add New Product to get started. Every field on the Add Product form is detailed below incase you have any questions.

  • Product Image – This will be the primary/default image displayed on the product page.
  • Product Gallery Images – The more images the better! Add extra product images for customers to flip through.
  • Product Video – This is a top secret option we can add on the backend. if you have an epic product video on YouTube to display in your image gallery, contact Seller Support and provide us with the YouTube URL and the product ID and we’ll add it for you.
  • Product Name – The name of your product.
  • Price – The full price (in USD) of your product before adding any discount.
  • Discounted Price – The full discounted price (in USD). We’ll show the full price slashed out with the discounted price along side it! Since you’re saving so much money by accepting crypto as payment (zero transaction fees and zero chargebacks/fraud ever!) we highly recommend offering some discount. We recommend 10% or more if you can!
  • Short Description – The short description will display above the Add To Cart button, so keep it brief!
  • Category – The category your products will appear in. If you don’t see a category you like, no need to worry, we’ll add it for you when we take your products live.
  • Description – This is the full description for your product. Unfortunately formatting is light at the moment. We recommend using bold headings to divide sections.

Then click Create Product to add the product to BitLift. You’ll be redirected to the Edit Product page where you can configure even more details about the product.
