Manufactured products that include a design element and are (often) customized for each order. Examples include banners, menu boards, yard signs, business cards, vehicle magnetics, door graphics, vehicle wraps, and much, much more.

Creating New Products

You can create a new product (whether Stock or Manufactured) in one of 3 ways:

  • From within Settings, click Add a Product.
  • When viewing the product list (from within Settings, not on the home page), click Add Product on the top right.
  • When viewing an existing product, click the Clone button in the top right. Cloning a product copies an existing product, including any images and artwork, into a new product.

Whenever possible, you will want to clone an product that is similar to the product you are creating. This is a great way to speed up the process, since you only need to change the values that are different and any existing artwork templates are copied over to the new product.

Product Setup


The information for each product is grouped across the following tabs:

Manufactured Product Setup Example


  • You sell 24“ x 24” yard signs to a particular real-estate franchise and you want to offer these product online via Cyrious Online. Other basic details of the product include:
    • You require a minimum purchase of 50 at $8 each. The price decreases to $7 when 100 or more is ordered.
    • The purchase can include a step-stake option, at $1 each.

Ideally, we would find another metal frame product and clone it as our starting point, but it won't take too long to set up manually either.

1. First, add a new product.

2. Enter the information on the General tab.

  • Name. Use a descriptive name that is meaningful to both the customer and your staff, such as “Yard Sign (Realty Pro)”.
  • Type of Product. Choose Manufactured.
  • Production Time. You can indicate a lead time range needed for this product. By default, this information is shown only to employees but if you check the “Show to Consumer” box then your end users will see those times when searching for products.
  • Categories. Select the product_categories this product falls under, or click “Manage Categories” to add one a new one.
  • Tags. Tags can make the search process easier. Enter some meaningful search phrases here, separated by commas.
  • SKU. If you use SKU's, this can make the search process easier for your employees.
  • Search Description. This description appears before the user starts the ordering process (e.g., on the home screen). Enter a short text description that will help the customer understand the product, such as “24 inch x 24 inch customized Realty Pro Yard sign.”
  • Order Description. This description appears on the ordering detail screen and on the invoice. It should contain all the information the customer and your staff will need about the order. You can insert merge fields so Cyrious Online will automatically update attributes and other information. For example, enter “quantity size Realty Pro Yard Sign.”
  • Active. Leave this product active. Setting a product inactive will remove it from all of the ordering screens. Leave it active for our example.
  • Don't Show this product before/after. For time-sensitive products, such as promotions, Cyrious Online can automatically limit the dates this product will appear. Leave these unchecked for our example.
  • Tax Classification. Manufactured items as usually “Goods”, so leave the default in place so Cyrious Online will tax it properly.

Your resulting screen might look like this:


3. Click on the “Next Step” or “Standard Attributes” Tab.

4. On this tab, enter the quantity and dimensional information for our product.

  • Limit to a list of quantities. We can restrict the user to buying certain batch sizes with this option. To require the user to purchase 50, choose this option and add quantities of 50, 75, 100, 125, 150, and 200. Set the initial quantity to 50.
  • Sizes. Even though in this example we don't need to use the size to compute pricing here, you must enter the actual size or Cyrious Online will not know the possible dimensions of the artwork. Choose the Fixed Size option with units of Inches. Enter 24“ x 24” as size, the height of 24, and the width of 24.
  • Allow Two Sided. Two sided always applies here, so we don't need to ask the user. Leave it unchecked.

Your resulting screen might look like this:


5. Click on the “Next Step” or “Pricing” Tab.

6. On this tab, enter the pricing information for our product.

  • Show price information in search results. Check this box, and choose the “Starting at” option. That will automatically display the lowest (high volume) price on the search screen.
  • Pricing. Choose “Fixed Price with Quantity Breakpoints”. The pricing you want is $8 up to 99, and 7 for more than 99. We don't need to create a separate price break for below 50 because the quantity the user can enter will be restricted. Add quantity breaks by clicking the “Add New Quantity Break” button.

Your resulting screen might look like this:


7. Click on the “Next Step” or “Custom Attributes” Tab.

8. On this tab, define the custom attributes “Add Step Stakes” for this product.

  • Add a New Custom Attribute and give it the name “Add Step Stakes”.
  • Choose to make it Checkbox.
  • Enter a price of $1 to the box labeled “Added $ Each” when the checkbox is checked. All other prices should be $0.00
  • Set the initial value to checked or unchecked as desired.

Your resulting screen might look like this:


9. Click on the “Artwork” Tab.

10. On this tab, upload the icon and any photos or other images of the product.

  • See online_designer for information on how to use set up and use Artwork and the online_designer.

Your resulting screen might look like this:


11. Click on the “Images and Documents” Tab.

12. On this tab, you can upload the icon and any photos or other images of the product. Note that any artwork you entered will automatically be used as the default thumbnail for the product, so you do not need to upload additional images unless you want to.

13. Click on the “Customer Websites” Tab.

14. On this tab, specify which websites this product should be visible on.

  • Check the customer website(s) that this product should appear on. The Employee Website is automatically selected (and can't be changed) so that employees can work with all websites.

Your resulting screen might look like this:


15. Click Save! You can click save along the way and keep working, but always remember to save before navigating away or your changes will be lost!
