Editing or changing a Product

Note that all images below are taken from a standard Plone website - your website may have a different look, so the images are only a guide, they may not be exact.

Your website comes with the ability to add Products - so people can buy from you! We set some up for you, but here is how to add new Products as you expand what you sell.

Note - the examples below use 'DMA Product' as the name of the Product entry - your setup will generally use your company's initials instead of DMA - in the instructions, we have used xx as the initials.
