The main image is the picture that will be used as the preview image. Click the '+' image to add an image, click the eye icon to display a preview of the picture, and the bin icon to delete a picture.

For example, if the price is €100 and the sales price is €80, the new field with display a discount of 20%. The discount will be visible by your customers when they view the product page.

You can enter the product in a category from your catalogue, selecting it from 'Associate to the categories of your shop'.
