Creating items or services in your catalog allows you to quickly add frequently purchased items or services to a virtual terminal transaction.
To get started creating your first item or service:
- Select “Catalog” from the sidebar.
- Select “+New” from the header.
- Enter in an item name, this is the only required field needed in order to save.
- Category: The category field is optional, but can be used to generate category sales reports.
- Quantity in Stock: For items that have a finite amount, you can enter in a starting inventory quantity that auto-updates when a sale is made.
- Low Stock Alert: Set a low stock alert number to be notified when a quantity of an item falls below a specific threshold.
- If the item is a service, and there are no quantities required, simply select the checkbox to mark the item as a service.
- If the item is taxable, be sure to select the “is taxable” option, so that taxes will be automatically applied once you have set the tax rate for your business.
- Once you have created an item or service, you can start a new transaction from within your catalog by selecting the “+” next to each item, or by selecting “New Payment” from the top of your screen, and type in the name of the item into the item name field.
