Add a new manufacturer to Opencart store

Most of the customers of online store are biased towards few brands based on their past experiences and because of that they prefer to buy products from that particular brand. Now when they visit your store they might want to know weather their favorite brand is available on  your store or not. Opencart store has a manufacturer list page where buyers can see list of all manufacturers whose products are available on store. User can see that page using “Brands” link available on store footer under “Extras”.


Once user click on that link it will lead them to brand list page which looks as shown in following image.


Now in practical scenario if you are running your own store you will need to edit this out of box list because you may want to add or remove few brands based on your store. Here are the steps to achieve that.

Step 1:

Login to Admin panel and navigate to “Catalog>Manufacturers

Step 2:

Under Manufacturer page you will be able to see list of all brands which are listed on brand list page.


Step 3:

If you want to remove any brand just Select that brand using check box and click on Delete button available on top right corner of page.

Step 4:

To add new brand click on “Add” button which will lead you to form where you should fill all details related to new brand. You can select logo related to that brand. Click on “Save” once you are done with details.


Now go and check your brand list page it will reflect your changes.


In this case we had added Samsung as new brand and it is visible on brand list page.
