Edit Product Type
This page lets you define the product type name and description as well as the attributes that products of this type can have. You can disable unneeded attributes, add your own attributes, and specify default attribute values that will be assigned to newly created products of this type.
The attributes on this page are organized the same way as in the Add Product or Edit Product windows. There is a small '?' icon next to every attribute that you can click to open a small window with the attribute description and the corresponding template tag.
To add new attributes to the product type, use the New Custom Attributes section.
The shopping cart system allows you to create two types of additional attributes:
Select the appropriate attribute type and click the Add button. A new window will open where you can specify the details of the new attribute. After you complete the form, the new attribute will be added to the page.
Existing (previously defined) custom attributes are listed in the Custom Attributes section. Every custom attribute has two links, Edit and Delete, which can be used to edit an attribute’s details or delete an attribute, respectively.
For instance, you can set the default value for the Product Tax Class attribute to 'Taxable.' Consequently, you will not need to set the 'Taxable' value each time you enter a new product of this type. Of course, these values can be changed later for any product.
Clear the corresponding checkboxes in the Visibility column on the left and then click the Save button (located at the top or at the bottom of the page). You will then never be prompted to enter the corresponding attribute(s) values when you add or edit a product.
To return to the list of product types without saving any changes, click the Cancel button.
