Subscribe to a Package
To start selling or to list your products & services in HalalDunia.com’s Marketplace, you need to subscribe to a package. Go to Vendor Dashboard > Subscription. Below are the available plans for you to choose from. Upon successful purchase of a package, your account will be enabled for selling.
Add a Product
Navigate to vendor dashboard. Click on Products from the left menu and then Add New Products button from the top right corner. It will open a new window where you will be able to create a new product very easily with providing the most important details only.
The common information about a product are the title, price, description. Discount price is optional. You can even schedule discounts for a certain amount of time. You can enter a starting date and end date to apply automatic discounts to your product. Vendors need to select the category from the drop-down.
Vendors are able to create new product tags from vendor dashboard.
Vendors click on Vendor Dashboard > Product. Under the Select Product Tags field, add a tag and Press Enter. The word or phrase will be added as a separate tag.
After you have provided all the required information, Click on the Create Product button. It will create the product and redirect you to the product edit page, where you will be able to add more information about your product.
You may add more product images, select a suitable category for your product. Also please give a detailed description of your product along with any additional information that your buyers needs to know before purchase.
There is also an option to select product type. You can select either Simple or Variable product.
Selecting Product Type – Simple Product
These types of products are simple and have no variants. They are single and standalone products, which does not require any other information to define different variants.
Selecting Product Type – Variable Product
A variable product is a product that has different types of variants. For example, you might want to sell a dress which is available in 3 different colors and sizes. So this option will enable you to add those colors and sizes you need. You can add variations based on anything you like, perhaps material used or the stitching style.
To create a variation from the frontend, the vendor has to select This Product Has Multiple Options. Then some new fields will appear to input the variations.
Now if you need custom variations and attributes of your own, then you have to select Custom Attributes and then click Add Option. Then two blank fields will appear to input the variation name and attributes.
You can add as many variations and attributes as you want. When you are done, check the box Create variation using those attributes. The system will make all the combinations and will prompt you to add prices for those variations.
If you want to disable any variation, then you can uncheck the box on the left.
Quantity and variation picture adding function will not be available right away. You have to save the product once to get those options. Right after saving the product, the fields above will be have a pencil icon on the right. Click on that to add more details to the variations.
Inventory and variants
This section holds a bit complicated information. None of these fields are mandatory. If you do not need to add stock quantity and yours is just a simple product, then you can totally skip this section.
But if you are creating a downloadable product or selling a dress or shirt, which has multiple sizes, then you should read this section carefully.
What is SKU?
SKU stands for Stock Keeping Unit. It should be an unique set of characters which will not match to any other product.
Enable Product Stock Management
Let’s say you have 10 pieces of the product and you don’t want to receive after orders are placed for 10 units. If you enable stock management and enter 10 in the quantity field, then after 10 units are ordered, this product will show a message that all the quantities are sold and there is no stock.
But, you might want to take some pre-orders before your next batch comes up. So you can Allow Back Order to let the customers place orders even if the product is out of stock.
If you are selling photos, music, software or any digital product, then this is the option to use. If you click on the Add File button, three more fields will be added.
The name field defines what the downloaded file name should be. We are letting you to define that because you might name the original file to something like “new-album-updated-jan-12.zip” and you want the user to download the file as “New Album”. So this option will be useful for you to serve and organize better.
If you are serving the files from your very own site, then you can click on choose file and select. But you can also serve the file from Dropbox, Google Drive or some other file hosting site you like.
Listing of Services (Call for Price)
Say you only want to list your services in HalalDunia.com, the price field is still compulsory to enter otherwise your listing will not appear.
In this case, please set price to $0. The Add to Cart button will be replaced by Read More button and the price will be replaced with Call for Price button so customers will contact you directly to enquire on your services.
No purchasing can be made if there is no price. Good thing is that your listing still appears in the Marketplace!
