Entering a product in Odoo

Now that we have a customer, it is time we enter some products to sell to our new customer. For our example, we are going to enter a medium white cotton t-shirt. Click on the Products item in the menu, on the left:

Creating products in Odoo

Create a new product by clicking on the Create button.

The following is the form to enter a product record into Odoo:

Product name

The product name is what will be displayed on the sales orders, invoices and in all other screens that refer to this specific product. For our example, we are selling a Medium White T-Shirt.

Can be Sold

Much like the customer Active flag, you can use Can be Sold to remove products from showing up on product lists by unchecking Can be Sold. For our example, we want to sell this t-shirt to Mike Smith, so we will leave the option checked.

Product Type

Product Type is the first option on the Information tab on the product screen. There are two available product types:

  • Consumable

  • Service
