The general product settings include the product image, name, SKU, description, weight, price, quantity in stock and categories this product is assigned to.

To add or edit the general product settings:

  1. Go to your Ecwid Control Panel → Catalog → Products.
  2. Open the product you wan to edit, the General tab.

Edit the name and SKU.

SKU stays for "stock keeping unit", and it is a product identification code. You can use the SKUs provided by manufacturers or your own combinations of letters and numbers. 
If you leave the SKU field empty, Ecwid will generate the SKU and add it automatically.

If your products need to be shipped, check the Requires shipping or pickup box and enter the product weight. This is necessary for calculating the correct shipping rates:
