First, the "Layers"

Shopventory offers three "layers" of differentiation: Category, Product, and Variant. 

  • Category is the first layer. 
  • Then you select the Products under that Category. 
  • Finally, you select the Variants under that product.



Each field allows you to add plenty of info, so for instance:

Category: Snacks

Product: Potato Chips

  • Variant: Classic
  • Variant: BBQ
  • Variant: Sea Salt & Vinegar — etc...


Category: Snacks

Product: Ice Cream

  • Variant: Vanilla
  • Variant: Chocolate
  • Variant: Strawberry — etc...

You can also have Shopventory Generate Variants with multiple attributes: Learn more


There are any number of configurations, even for more complex inventories.
For instance:


Category: Nike

Product Name: Mens Zoom KD - Regular Fit

  • Variant Name: Size 10 - Black
  • Variant Name: Size 10 - Blue
  • Variant Name: Size 8 - Black ... etc.

Product Name: Mens Air Jordan XXXI - Wide

  • Variant Name: Size 10 - Black
  • Variant Name: Size 9 - White
  • Variant Name: Size 9 - Black ... etc.

How you set up your Variants depends on what makes the most sense for your business, but the tools are all there! Each Variant will have its own price, cost and quantity.
