8. Create your products.
Option 1: If you have a product for every combination of attributes (example: you have the colors white and red in both sizes S/M and L/XL), enter your products' attributes using the drop down menus presented under the Products heading. You can either browse through the drop down options or begin to type in order to search for your desired value. Once selected, the attribute value will appear underneath the field.
If you only have one product in your product group, enter only the attribute(s) for that product and no additional products will be created.
For example, for a red shirt that is a size S/M, only enter Color: Red and Size: S/M
In order to remove an attribute value from your selection, hover over the oval attribute container and click on the “x” that appears to the right of the value, similar to the bullet points.
Option 2: If you do not have a product for every combination of attributes (example: you have the colors white in sizes S/M and X/XL, but you only have the color red in X/XL), click the "Add a Product" link below the product list information to add products to your group. You can then add attributes to the products using the "Edit" link and instructions below.
9. If you enter multiple values for distinguishing attributes, multiple products will be created below your attribute selections. Here you will enter any identifying information about your products, such as SKU, Model number, Product ID, Quantity and Unit Price. Enter information according to the product attributes displayed on the left end of each line.
Required fields are marked with an asterisk.
NOTE: The Product ID is usually the UPC number associated with your product, but can also be EAN, ISBN, or ITF. As you type, your Product ID type will appear below the field.
10. Once your information has been entered, you will notice a red exclamation point symbol to the right of your cost.

Unit price and quantity will already be present.
Required fields are marked with an asterisk.
12. Your product may have the option to add Distinguishing and Supplementary attributes. You should only have to add attributes here if you have added a product after completing the other products, or you didn't choose attributes on the Basic Information tab.
NOTE: Only add distinguishing attributes when editing product one at a time. If you are editing in bulk, no distinguishing attribute fields should be filled it.

17. You will be returned to the previous product information page.

If you still have a red exclamation point, hover your mouse over it to see what fields were unfilled or not accepted and click again on the “Edit Product Details” page to enter any missing information.
