How do I add products into Vend?


Latest update: - Nat Dudley

Setting up your products correctly can be crucial to the success of your store. A correct product setup can mean a speedier sales procces, and more accurate reporting.

A product in Vend is made up of a number of different fields. When creating a product you must have a product name, tax name, price, handle and SKU code. Even though it's not required, it's highly recommended that you also include a supply price so that your average cost and cost of goods sold are correct going forward.

Another great thing to do when setting up your products is to add a friendly, customer-facing product description and product image. If you are using Ecommerce integration (or plan to in the future) setting up your products with customer facing names, descriptions and images can save you a lot of time.
