The Product Description field is used mainly for online businesses. It is factored into SEO (Search Engine Optimization) so they should be written with the knowledge that each description will be publicly available on BigCommerce, Shopify and WooCommerce.

Descriptions can be used for taking notes, but just be aware that connecting an e-commerce integration will push the description field.

The Product Description can be found when you click into a product from the Inventory page.


Text formatting like bold and italics can be applied. You can also create links, bullet points, numbered lists, etc.


You can link additional product images on the description. Just paste in the image address. Shopventory does not host those images on our end but we reference the link in order to display the corresponding image.


Videos can also be linked. Just get the shareable URL. (For example: Once that's pasted, Shopventory will automatically embed it into the Product Description and send it out. 


To enter HTML, use the "Source Code" editor on the far right-hand side of the options at the top of the Product Description.
