Introduction to Products

The fundamentals of product management and organisation

A product is an item that you sell. To view a list of all the products you have loaded in Neto go to:  Neto Control Panel > Products > View All.

Neto has a large number of predefined product fields available to use. You can also create your own “custom” fields if a field you need does not exist already. To add a new custom or misc field go to: Neto Control Panel > Admin > Customisable Fields > Product Fields.

Only fields that you populate will display on your website. We suggest only using the fields you require. To determine the fields you require, you should add a product manually through the control panel and then build your product import file using only the fields you have populated.

Adding Products to Neto

You can add products to Neto in 5 ways:
