Quantity is your product stock number. If you enter a number here, the product stock will be automatically subtracted when your customer makes purchase. When it gets to 0 your customer won't be able to buy this product until you adjust the product stock. If you don't want to track the stock of this product, you could leave this empty.

The image that you upload is the large product image. We recommend you update images with the size around 800 pixels. The system generates different size thumbnails if needed. You don't need to upload thumbnails. The current supported image types are jpg, gif and png.
