Introduction to Products

The fundamentals of product management and organisation



Neto has a large number of predefined product fields available to use. You can also create your own “custom” fields if one does not already exist.

To add a new field from the Neto dashboard, navigate to Setup & Tools > All settings & tools > Products tab > Click Custom Product Fields and click Add New.

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 in 7 different ways

1. Control Panel
From the Neto dashboard, navigate to Products > Add Product.

See our anatomy of a product to understand how products appear on your webstore.

2. File Import
