Step 2: Adding your Products

In this article

Now that you have configured your account information, let's get started with your inventory.

Product Catalog

To help you get started quickly, we have imported the entire catalog of AlphaBroder, SanMar, and S&S Activewear; updated daily. However, you can always turn it off by going to Configuration > Settings > General.

Custom Products: CSV Import

In cases where our product catalogs is not enough, you may choose to import your inventory into our system. The best way to import your inventory is to use our CSV import system.

Learn how to export CSV file from Microsoft Excel

To get started go to Configuration > Service & Products > Product

Next, click on the Download CSV Template button to download a file. This file contains all the headers required by our system in order to successfully import it.

You must add a new entry for every size and color variations.

To better illustrate how a product will translate to our CSV file, let' add the following product from Gildan.

Headers Value Options
type

simple - A simple product doesn't have any sizes or colors

variant - A variant product may have either different sizes or different colors or both.

Since the Gildan t-shirt has mutliple colors and sizes, this would be a variant product.

title Title ideally shouldn't contain the brand name in it. This allows us to present the product better. Therefore, the title will be Men's DryBlend Classic T-Shirt
brand Gildan
description This is an optional field. Since there is not description for this product, let's leave it blank.
taxable

TRUE - if you want to collect taxes for this product

FALSE - if you do NOT want to collect taxes for this product

This value should mostly by TRUE unless there is a specific reason for the product not to be taxable.

barcode If you want to provide your own barcode values you may provide it here. Otherwise leave it blank and our system will generate one for you. We recommend leaving this blank.
supplier_code

This is an optional field.

G8000

default_price

You should add the price without markups. You can configure markups separately.

Since the t-shirt is $6.00, the value should be 6.00 without the dollar sign.

weight

While this field is optional, we strongly recommend providing the weight here. This weight will be used to estimate shipping rates and speeds up creating a shipping label.

Since this shirt is 5.6oz, the value should be 5.6 without oz

size_id

For simple products, leave this blank

sm

size_label

For simple products, leave this blank

SM

color_id

For simple products, leave this blank

navy

color_label

For simple products, leave this blank

Navy

color_hex

For simple products, leave this blank. The value should be a valid hexadecimal color format.

#0E293F

Custom Products: UI

For adding small number of products, or editing existing one, the quickest way would be to use the UI. Click on the + Product button to get started.

Let's go ahead and use the same example we used for CSV uploading.

Note

  • If the product has no variants, leave the boxes unchecked.
  • For sizes, use comma to rapidly enter the sizes.
  • Don't worry about price differences / weight differences between variations. You will have a chance to edit them.

Once you have entered the values, click Next.

In this screen, you will get a chance to override the weight and price for each variation. Usually, larger sizes costs and weighs more.
