We can add products in two ways.
1. Manually – products -> manage products -> create products
2. bulk upload through CSV.- products -> import/export product -> download csv data -> edit and save the changes -> upload the saved csv file.
Please note at least one product needs to be added manually to understand the fields in the CSV file better.
Item Name: Name of the product.
Status – Notifies on the item status.
1 is active
0 is inactive
Type: Notifies on product type
Standard – In general, we can set product type to standard
Fish and Meat can be considered to the type of Fish, Meat
Offer Product – Products which are included for Buy one Get one offer section
Subcategory and Brand id – subcategory and brand ids of respected items to be entered. We get these details in the admin panel [ manage products -> categories & Brands]
Delivery Duration – slot based delivery from the drop down in the panel or mention slot in the CSV data.
Single SKU (type -1) – if you select a single SKU then its variants’ price depends on the percentage of the price you enter for 1 kg.
Stock shares equally within its variations
Example -> vegetables, meats
Multi SKU (type – 0) – each variants price and stocks can be given separately
Example -> personal care products
variation name: let’s say onion is the “item name ” then 500 gram, 250 gram, and 1kg are its variations. we need to put 500, 250, and 1 under the “variation name” field and gram, kg, or any units under the “weight unit” field.
MRP – the price of the item
Discounted price – discounted price to be given here
Membership price – if any user purchases a membership plan, then the user could be able to place an order using the price mentioned here on respected products
Cost per item – it doesn’t show on the customer app, used only to calculate the profit reports in the panel. The actual cost of the item when the client buys it.
Stock notify/Alert – notifies on out of stock in both app and panel. let’s say you have set it to 5 for an item and the item stock quantity is 100. when item count reaches 95 you will get notified in out of stocks tab(analytics -> out of stocks). also, customers can see the “out of stock” label on that product.
Item priority – the lesser value of the item gets the higher priority. if you want any item to come at the top then you need to set its priority to 0,[ could be set in ascending order]
Gross weight: for single SKU products gross weight could be 0.5 for 500 grams, 0.25 for 250grams, and 1 for 1kg.
For multi SKU we can keep 0
Net weight can be 0 for all the items. We don’t consider the value
