Products are the items that are sold through your store. Products are typically managed through the WooCommerce section in your WordPress backend. The FooSales apps connect to your WooCommerce store and retrieve the relevant product information.

Products are added to your store via the WooCommerce backend. FooSales then connects to your WooCommerce store and retrieves the relevant product information.

- Go to your WordPress site’s Dashboard > WooCommerce > Products > Add Product.
- Enter a product Title and Description.
- Go to the Product Data panel, and complete the relevant product information as needed. For a detailed overview of the Product Data settings, visit the WooCommerce help guide.
- Set a product variation if needed.
- Set your product image.
- Set your product category.
While products are displayed in the FooSales apps, they are not permanently stored in the apps. Each time the app is loaded the app will retrieve your stores product information ensuring it is up to date. If a product is updated through your WooCommerce store, the changes will only reflect when the app is reloaded.
The behavior of this does differ slightly between the web and tablet apps as they retrieve data differently.
You can edit products directly through the Products tab in the FooSales menu.
Product variations can also be directly edited and are listed separately underneath the main product in the sidebar.
FooSales supports both Simple Products and Variable products. Variable products let you define variations of a single product where each variation may have a different SKU, price or stock level.
See the WooCommerce Variable Product guide for a detailed overview on how to create a variable products.
When selecting a variable product in FooSales, you will be presented with a dialog screen that will allow you to select from the available product variations.
Using the search field you can filter the products based on the products attributes (e.g wood).
You can set the FooSales app to only retrieve products from your site that are tagged to a specific WooCommerce product category. This is done via the FooSales plugin settings.
By default FooSales displays all published products within the FooSales apps. You can then filter the product listing using the category drop down menu. When selecting a category, only products that are tagged to the category will display in the products listing. It is important to note, the category filter does not reload the products, but rather shows and hides the relevant categories.
You can also search the results of a category listing using the search input field. The results displayed below the search bar will filter and only display products that include the term entered in the search bar.
FooSales supports WooCommerce sales items, however you can also specify a discount on the fly using the price modification feature. This is useful for applying in-store discounts that may help convert a sale or compensate for damaged goods.
