Related Items

Here you can see a list of related items, which if a feature of your shop, links to them will display when viewing this product. To add a new one, you'll need the 'Product ID'. You can get this from the list of products (see Managing your Products) in the 'ID' column. Have another browser window open so that you can get the ID's of products from the list without leaving the product editing page.


This is only for shops which have more than one display template for products, if you need to use this we'll tell you in your Website Guide.
