Created:   |   Updated:

This guide will cover the product catalog page and everything you can do to streamline your shipping and inventory processes as much as possible.

Step by Step Walkthrough

The product catalog displays information about your products like weight, name, and product category. If you have our inventory management tool enabled, you will also see information about stock levels.

You can adjust what information is displayed using the arrange columns button. Just drag and drop columns you with to add or remove:

Clicking on a product brings you into the details page which shows you information about product details, stock, suppliers, history, and stores that sell the product.

Deselect any you don’t want and click continue. Before the import, you arrange the stores in order of accurate product information, as well as advising you that your product catalog will be locked during this process while it updates:

When you click "Start Update" your product catalog will look like this until the process is complete:

Once it’s done, any products with SKUs will have all their information imported into your product catalog.

You can also upload a CSV file with product information to add to the product catalog. Check out this article for a detailed walkthrough of that process.

Finally, selecting “Add Product” allows you to manually enter the details of a single product:
