Creating Product Listings for Add-on Products
Shares & Products / Product Listings / Add Product
If you want to sell products through your online catalog in addition to your CSA shares, you will need to create a product listing for each of those products. The process is quite similar to what you just did to make the product listing for your CSA share. There are a couple of differences, described in this section.
This time, leave ‘Companion product’ checked, give the product a name, and click “next”.
The following page will be almost identical to the product listing form for a CSA share, with a few additional fields required.
When you come to the Type field, the Companion product box will be checked. The Schedule field will offer you four options: single delivery, weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly (4 weeks).
Whichever options you choose here will be shown to your members in the product listing.
‘Single delivery’ means that the member can choose to try the product just once. The member must use a credit card, have one on file from a previous purchase, or have cash in their cash account for this option, as mailing a check would be cumbersome for a single delivery.
‘Weekly’ is self-explanatory. ‘Bi-weekly’ add-ons will be scheduled for the next available delivery date and then every other week. ‘Monthly (4 weeks)’, means that the item will be scheduled for delivery every fourth week.
Departments: A full list of available Departments will display during (new) product set up only. After a product is Live, you will still see the Departments in a lighter gray color, click on the word Departments and the full list will be displayed. NOTE: Products can be visible via multiple departments. For example, “dried apples” could be found in “Fruits” and “Grocery & Produce”, and perhaps in “Holiday” for particular times of the year.
