Adding a Manufacturer
Manufacturers are found under Catalogue Setup > Manufacturer
To add a new Manufacturer to the list, just click the blue Add New button.
The only thing you need to set up a manufacturer is a Manufacturer Name. If you only have a single store, it is assigned to the store by default.
We manage all SEO Keywords from our SEO module, as it is much easier and faster, so we will leave it blank here.
Depending on the look and feel of your site, the manufacturer image can be displayed on your product page, either with, or without, the brand name. The manufacturer image is assigned using the image manager.
In the store front, clicking a Manufacturer Name or Manufacturer Image will show customers a list with all products in your store from that manufacturer.
The description of the manufacturer usually does more for your Search Engine Optimisation than it does for visitors, but it is very valuable content to add to your site.
If you want the manufacturer description to add to the experience your customers have while in your store, use it to tell them why you selected this manufacturer. Was it their high quality? Their innovation? Their unbeatable value?
Now we just click the Save button in the top right-hand corner to save our new manufacturer.
