Categories/Products (Products Level)

Zen Cart Products Admin Page

If you are at a level where the Categories screen only shows products, there are a set of action icons on the right.

Product Listing Icons

These icons allow you to: - edit product - delete product - move product (change categories) - copy product (duplicate or create linked product) - use the attributes controller - use the products price manager - use the meta tags editor.

Using the green pencil will put you on the product editing page, which is a key page for configuring your products.

The product edit screen allows you to set the following values for a product:
