Linked Products section
Using up-sells and cross-sells, you can cross promote your products. They can be added by searching for a particular product and selecting the product from the dropdown list:

After adding, they are listed in the input field:

Up-sells are displayed on the product details page. These are products that you may wish to encourage users to upgrade, based on the product they are currently viewing. For example, if the user is viewing the coffee product listing page, you may want to display tea kettles on that same page as an up-sell.

Cross-sells are products that are displayed with the cart and related to the user’s cart contents. As an example, if the user adds a Nintendo DS to their cart, you may want to suggest they purchase a spare stylus when they arrive at the cart page.

Grouping – Used to make a product part of a grouped product.

Advanced section

Purchase note – Enter an optional note to send the customer after they purchase the product.
Menu order – Custom ordering position for this item.
Enable Reviews – Enable/Disable customer reviews for this item.

Taxonomies / Category

On the right-hand side of the Add New Product panel, there are product categories in which you can place your product. You can also assign product tags in the same way.

Setting catalog visibility options and feature status

In the Publish panel, you can set Catalog Visibility for your product.

Shop and search – Visible everywhere, shop pages, category pages and search results.
Shop only – Visible in shop pages and category pages, but not search results.
Search only – Visible in search results, but not in the shop page or category pages.
Hidden – Only visible on the single product page – not on any other pages.
You can also set whether the product is promoted in product categories, up-sells, related products as a Featured Product. For example, you could tick the Featured box on all bundles you sell.

Adding an external/affiliate product

Select ‘External/Affiliate’ from the product type dropdown. This removes unnecessary tabs, such as tax and inventory, and inserts a new product URL field. This is the destination where users can purchase the product. Rather than Add to Cart buttons, they see a Read More button directing them to this URL.

Mark a product as Featured

To mark a product as featured, go to: Products > Products and select the Star in the featured column. Alternatively, select Quick Edit and then the Featured option.

Click on the Quick edit Option

Tick the Featured option, you can also update price and SKU from here
