  1. From the Admin panel, select Catalog > Manage Products. Then, click the Add Product button.
  2. In the Create Product Settings section, select the Attribute Set you created to be used as a template for the product record.

    • On the Prices tab, the Price is required, but is used as a default price. The price of individual associated products can be adjusted as needed.
    • On the Inventory tab, Manage Stock is set by default to “No,” because inventory is managed by each associated product.
