Basics of the Product Editor

Introduction to the In-Line Product Editor

From the Control Panel, select Shopping Cart, then select the Product Editor


Note: You can have multiple product editors pages open, but data between them may not be updated until you refresh the list.

The In-Line Product Editor has Rows of products, Columns of attributes, and a Configuration menu.

  1. Rows: Products are listed with checkboxes next to them. You can select more than one product, and many editing operations work with multiple products.
  2. Filters: You can quickly find products by typing into the boxes near the top of the table.
  3. Configuration: Clicking the “gear icon” near the top-left of the table allows you to customize the layout of the table. There is also a menu for managing previously saved layouts. The lower “Actions” dropdown allows you to perform operations on products such as “Delete,” “Edit,” or “Unpublish.” This is helpful if you can’t right-click on products in the list.


You can make changes right in the Product List

  • Unpublish or Delete multiple products – right click or use the dropdown menu (“Actions”) at top left.

You can change the ordering and column views:

  • “Order by” many of the columns (price, mfg, etc) by clicking on the top label
  • Filter most columns by typing in the box below the top label. (
