Common picture URL for products

If you use one directory for all your product pictures, you can set the URL address to your directory here. After that, the picture names are all that you need to include in the product information.

Common file URL for products

If you use one directory for all your product files, you can add an URL address to your directory here. After that, the file names are all that you need to include in the product information.

Default picture for products

If your product has no product picture then it uses default product picture. Here you can select and upload default picture for all your product files or you can add an URL address to your default picture wich may be in other web server. Uploaded file size limit is 100Mb. Primarly shop uses uploaded product picture. You can also add alternative text to default picture.

Use product's minimum and maximum amount restrictions

If you want to use product's minimum and maximum ordering amounts, check this box.

Product rounding policy

You can set the product's amount rounding. If it is chosen the up rounding, the product amount in the basket will be rounded to the nearest bigger value, down rounding - to the nearest smaller.The amount , which you will get, depends of factorial(Look basic product information) and restrictions. Restrictions is the combination of the three rules(IE: min = 5, Max = 10 and f = 3). Restrictions say, that the product's amount must be in the range m...M and the product's amount must be the factorial of the f. A product has a set of allowed amounts, which are not in the contradiction with the restrictions. IE: if m = 5, M = 10 and f = 3, then set of allowed amounts for the product is: 6, 9.

Product field used in directlink

This field is used for generating reference key into directlink for product. Directlink looks like http://www.mycompany.com/ShowProduct/xxx, where xxx is reference to the product. For example, if selected field is ItemCode, then xxx will be the product's itemcode.

Searched properties

You can select the fields that you want the product search to include. The search fields are the same for both the Administration Interface and the Webshop.

Product is removed from inventory

Determines when Workspace should automatically decrease the amount of a product in stock. The options are:


  • Never

  • When order is received - Stock amounts of the products included in the order are decreased accordingly.

  • When order is received or changed - Stock amounts are decreased also when products are added to the order in the Order module's Order modification -tab.

Note that in addition to the entire product's stock amount also the individual product option choices' amounts will be updated if they are defined.

Product returns to the inventory

Determines when Workspace should automatically increase the amount of a product in the stock. The options are:


  • Never

  • When order is removed - Stock amounts of the products included in the order are increased when the order is cancelled because the customer has interrupted the payment or the order is removed manually in the order management.

  • When order is removed or changed - Stock amounts are increased also when products are removed from the order in the Order module's Order modification -tab.

Note that in addition to the entire product's stock amount also the individual product option choices' amounts will be updated if they are defined.

Hide products automatically

Determines when Workspace should automatically hide a product. Caution: there is currently no way to automatically undo product hiding! Before activating this feature, please make sure that all products that should NOT be hidden, have "In Stock" amount larger than "Alarm limit" value or zero, depending on the option (the products that don't have "In Stock" amount defined are considered always visible). The options are:


  • Never

  • When the stock alarm limit is reached

  • When the product is sold out

The product doesn't automatically become visible event if the hiding condition is no longer met. You must set the product visible manually instead. Notice also that if the hiding condition is met it is impossible to set the product visible.

Please note that this feature does not prevent customers from ordering more product units than there are currently available in stock.

Show products automatically

Determines when Workspace should automatically show once hidden product. The setting can be either disabled or enabled. Note that when this setting is enabled, it depends on the previous setting (Hide products automatically). If the previous setting is set to the "Never", then this setting has no effect. If the "When the stock alarm limit is reached" option is selected then the product is re-shown if the canceled orders raise the stock amount above the alarm limit. In the case of "When the product is sold out" option the product is shown if an order is canceled that contains the product and the product's stock amount is above zero, then the product is shown again. The options of this setting are:


  • Never

  • When order is canceled and stock is positive/stock is above alarm limit



Use option based visibility

If checked the automatical hiding will be applied also on the individual product option choices if their amounts are defined. This means that the choices with smaller stock amount than the hiding condition allows will be hidden in the published service. Furthermore, the entire product will be hidden if it contains an option which has all it's choices hidden.

Use contract pricing

If checked the pricing contracts will also be used when counting the product price. Checking the pricing contracts for all products causes more processing for the server when showing products in the Webshop. So contract pricing should be activated only if it's necessary.

Caution: there is currently no way to automatically undo product hiding! Before activating this feature, please make sure that all products with options have option's "Amount" value larger than "Alarm limit", or larger than zero, depending on the option choice at "Hide products automatically".
