Products - Extended tab
Weight
Weight entered here is taken into account in the calculation of shipping costs. It’s measured in kilograms.
Dimensions L:m W:m H:m
Enter product’s length, width and height in meters if the shipping costs must be calculated based on product dimensions.
QuantityUnit
Specifying quantity and unit of measure is required for products for which a base price must be specified.
The base price is the price relative to a specific unit of measure, such as kilograms or litres.
Enter the product quantity per unit of measure. You can select a unit of measure from the list or enter a unit of measure that’s not in the list.
The base price will be displayed in the product’s detailed view.
Example: For a product that is offered in a 1.5 kg package, enter 1.5 in the Quantity field and select kg as the unit of measure. Assuming the product costs €3.00, the base price would be €2.00/kg.
External URL
Link to an external website, such as the manufacturer’s website, with additional information about the product.
Text for external URL
If you have added a link to an external website, you will need to enter the text for the link here. This text will be displayed in the product’s detailed view, together with the link to the external URL, at the end of the description.
Purchase Price (€)RRP

Enter the product’s purchase price here. It won’t be displayed in the shop but can be useful for future analyses.

RRP (Recommended Retail Price) allows you to offer products at a lower price than the manufacturer recommends. If the RRP, i.e., the price specified by the manufacturer, is greater than the product price, the normal price indication in the detailed view of the article is supplemented by a “Statt” with a crossed out RRP.

File
After you upload a file, the file name will be displayed here. Deleting the file name and then saving will remove this file from the product’s detailed view in the MEDIA tab.
File Upload: (max. 2 MB)
Here, you can upload an additional file for the product, for example, a datasheet or a user manual. After saving, the file name will be displayed in the File input field. The file can be downloaded in the MEDIA tab in the product’s detailed view. Use the Media URLs field to add multiple files and a description instead of just the file name.
Alt. Template

You can change the product’s detailed view to present it differently from the other products in the shop. To do this, you will need to use a specially created template whose path and name can be entered here. The path is relative to the template directory of the theme used.

Example: The page/details/mydetails.tpl entry for the “Flow” theme would call the mydetails.tpl template from the /application/views/flow/tpl/page/details directory.

Alt. Contact
By default, questions that customers can send via e-mail through the product’s detailed view are sent to the e-mail address specified under Master Settings ‣ Core Settings. If you have a direct contact person for a specific product, you will need to enter his/her e-mail address here. All product-related enquiries will be sent directly to this employee.
Searchable
This checkbox is selected by default so that customers can search for products in the shop. However, sometimes you might not want them to be able to search for a certain product in the shop, for example, if this is a free product that is added when they purchase something else. This needs to be done to prevent them from adding this product to the shopping cart multiple times.
Product can be customized
If this box is checked, an additional input field will be displayed on the product’s details page and in the shopping cart. Customers can enter text in this input field to provide individual information when purchasing products. This could be the text that is printed on a T-shirt or a mug or an engraved in a ring.
Intangible Product
Intangible products are products that are not packaged and sent to customers, for example, seminars or services.
If no shipping costs have to be calculated for all intangible products, you will need to select Don’t consider intangible Products (e.g. Gift Certificates) in Shipping Costs Calculation in Master Settings ‣ Core Settings, the Settings tab, under Other settings.
If you offer software, under Master Settings ‣ Core Settings ‣ Settings ‣ Download articles you have configured the “Download articles” function.
For more Informationen,see Downloads tab.
Free Shipping
If this box is checked, the product won’t be included in the shipping cost calculation. However, even when this product is added to the shopping cart together with other products, this doesn’t mean that the entire order will ship for free.
Deactivate wished Price
Customers can use the wished price function in the product’s detailed view by entering a price at which they would buy the product. Customer enquiries are collected under Customer Info ‣ Price Alert in the Admin panel. The shop owner can notify the customer by e-mail, prepared by the shop, once the desired price has been reached. Use this field to turn off the wished price for a specific product.

The function can also be globally enabled or disabled for the shop in the Functions section of the theme’s settings.

Until OXID eShop 6.2.1, wished price was called price alert.

Skip all negative Discounts (Discounts, Vouchers, Delivery …)
If this box is checked, no negative discounts, such as discounts and coupons, will be calculated for this product.
Confirm terms and conditions
According to the EU Consumer Rights Directive, which came into force on 13 June 2014, the user must agree to waive the right of withdrawal for services (intangible products) and downloadable products. For this purpose, a check box that hasn’t been preselected will be displayed with a corresponding message in the fourth step of the ordering process. In general, this function must be activated under Order in the Settings tab, under Master Settings ‣ Core Settings.
Bundled Product
Use this button to assign a free product to the selected product. It will be added to the shopping cart when customers purchase the product.
