Adding Variations and Attributes on Products (e.g color, size e.t.c.)
With the new Fargo Shopping, we give you the freedom to create your own Attributes and Variants

What is an Attribute?

An attribute is a unique feature of the product you create to make it different from a similar product you’ve created.

for instance, you can have 20 pairs of nike shoes on your Fargo Shop. These 20 pairs can differentiated from each other using features like color: red,white,blue and size:23,34,56. Every attribute you create MUST have a variant. Otherwise your product wont show on your shop. Always start by creating ATTRIBUTE before creating a VARIANT. Now lets start. You will like how this works !!

To create Attributes, follow these steps below

What is a Variant?

A variant is a description of the attribute created. Every Attribute MUST have a variant. For instance, usig the above example, the attribute is color whose options are Red, Green. So the variant for the attribute color can be something like 2 images representing color Red and green etc.

Now lets add a variant for the attribute above to have it appear on the front end for buyers

after saving the product, you scroll down again to the variants section. You should see something like this (below):

Managing Coupons

It could be a very good business policy to give some coupon to customer. Seller could give the coupon for special customers. We have that feature right here with us.

To create a coupon, navigate to

  1. Seller Dashboard> coupons> Add New coupon
  2. Add coupon name
  3. Select discount type (Product Discount= fixed amount you want to impose on a product e.g. Ksh2000. Product % Discount= Percentage of the total price e.g 20%)
  4. If you want to limit the coupon to only one user, add the user email
  5. Add expiry date if you wish to
  6. Select products that you wish to apply the coupons on
  7. Exclude sale items if you wish. Sale items are items already on discount.
  8. Add minimum amount if you wish. This is the minimum amount threshold  on your shop you wish your buyers to hit before they can be illegible for the coupon
  9. Exclude your products that you don’t wish to have on coupon. Otherwise leave bank
  10. We encourage you to ensure the product you create coupons for cost Ksh. 1,000 or more. Our system only allows purchases of Ks.1,000 and above. However, your clients can still buy the product even if its less than Ksh. 1000. As long as they add any other product to their shopping cart to make the total shopping cost 1,000.
