You can add variants by toggling Enable Variants while creating a product or in the Edit Product page which can be accessed by navigating to Products > Products and clicking on the product you’d like to edit. Click on Size, Color, or Material to add variants.
Note that these are placeholders and you can add your own type of variant
You can set different prices for different variants of the same product.
Hit the Publish or Save button after adding your product variations and other product details.
Featured Product option allows highlighting specific products that can be promoted easily on your online store. Enabling the featured product option for different products in Hitpay turns all of your featured products to show every where at first. To make a product as a featured product:
- Navigate to the Create/Edit Products page and enable the Featured Products checkmark.
- Click Publish/Save to save your changes.
Adding Products in Bulk
You also have the option of adding products in bulk into HitPay via the Web Dashboard, you can import products directly from Shopify, Shopee and Lazada or use CSV to bulk add and edit products. To add products in bulk, navigate to Products > Products on the HitPay dashboard and click on Add Products In Bulk
You can also download the CSV product template from the Bulk Upload Popup to understand the needed CSV file structure better.
Understanding the CSV File Structure:
Handles are unique names for each product and cannot contain spaces. You can use handles to update existing products or add product variants. While handles are not required, if you don’t provide one, the system will automatically generate one based on your product name. If you need to find the handle to update existing products, you can export your current products to retrieve it.
Products with Variants
For products with variants, the CSV file structure is: The first row with the same product handle represents the main product. Variant names should be placed on the main product row under designated columns such as “Variant1 Name,” “Variant2 Name,” and so forth. The subsequent rows pertain to the product variants, and each row should include the corresponding variant values under columns “Variant1 Value,” “Variant2 Value,” and so on.
Main Product Vs Product Variants
The columns “Name,” “SKU,” “Description,” “Publish,” “Manage Inventory,” and “Category” are specific to the core product and should be left blank in the CSV file for variant rows. These columns do not apply to variant entries.
Add your product details in the file template and upload the completed product file. Your products will be published within minutes and you’ll receive an email notification upon successful upload.
Adding Products in Bulk from Shopify, Shopee and Lazada
Easily bring in your products from Shopify, Shopee, and Lazada. This import process is a one-time action and doesn’t involve ongoing inventory synchronization. Any modifications to the product or inventory in HitPay or the external platform will not reflect in the other platform.

- On your HitPay dashboard, navigate to Products > Products and click on Add Products In Bulk.
- Choose Shopify as the source and upload the previously downloaded CSV file.
- Click on Save.
- You will be notified by email when your Shopify products are imported into HitPay. If there are any issues with your file, the email notification will provide an explanation.
