There are three options we recommend for creating new products. These include:
On the Products page, click "Create Product."
From there, you can add the information you choose under the Product Details, Locations, and Integrations tabs as shown here:
Fill out all the fields applicable to your business.
Keep in mind that some fields are needed to post to your integration. For a reminder of how our fields sync to your integration, click here.

In Bulk (via spreadsheet)
When you have many products to create (or edit) at once, we recommend a Bulk Upload Spreadsheet. To generate one, click here:
On the Create Products & Variants (or Create Products with Attributes) bulk upload spreadsheet in particular, you'll be able to create location-specific products, add categories, SKUs, active status, barcodes, prices, default costs, PAR levels, reorder quantities, vendors, vendor SKUs, quantities, and more.
During the ordering/receiving process
This option is perfect for you when creating your Purchase Order, whether to send it to your vendor (or to receive it immediately because the product is already there).
Open the PO.
Select your Vendor and enter the Bill to/Ship to fields.
At the bottom of the page, click the "Create New Item" button towards the bottom of the page, as shown here:
Once you click "Create New Item," you can create a product that will be added to the PO immediately.
Staging or Creating Inactive Products
Creating inactive products before they arrive at your store or before you're ready for them to show up on your integration is a common practice. By doing so, you'll have time to write descriptions, add photos, or just wait for the perfect moment to build up and release your products to your customers.
Set the product as inactive from the Product Details page (one by one) or one of the Create Products spreadsheets (in bulk).
