Chapter 3. Managing Products

After successfully installing Magento, you can now take on the task of creating and configuring your store. You could begin by crafting the design that reflects your store's brand, or you could start configuring the many settings that will direct how your customers will interact with your online store.

However, selling online really boils down to the products you are selling. Additionally, many of Magento's configurations are dependent on the products you're offering and how they are arranged into categories.

Therefore, when we create a new Magento-powered store, we begin at the root, so to speak: the products.

In this chapter, we will tackle:

  • Creating categories

  • Managing products and attributes to help your customers shop more easily

  • Setting up reviews, tags, and feeds to help promote your products

  • Importing products en masse
