Create Products using Catalogs

This tutorial will go over the Catalogs feature in Bright Sites. The Catalogs feature allows for selecting products from a supplier database or another of your organization's store, into the store. Once selected, a mark up can be applied to the product price but no other modification can be made to the product. If additional modification are needed, considering using the Product Copy feature instead.

Please note, if a product has Logo Locations activated in the source item, those logos won't appear on the store where the Catalog item is added.
