SellerCloud offers a number of ways to add a product to your catalog. You can manually add products through the SellerCloud interface one by one - add products in bulk by uploading a file - or add products via sales channels. In this tutorial, we'll look at adding a new product using the SellerCloud interface.
Click on the "Inventory" tab and click "Add new product." The following page initiates the product creation. Enter a product name and SKU. To get a computer-generated SKU, click on this button here. While computer generated SKU's are randomly generated, SellerCloud developers can configure your system to generate SKUs in a sequential order.
Now select a product type from here. If you do not have the correct product type on the drop-down menu you will be able to create one on the following page.
Now click "Add New Product." Here is the Product Summary page.
Let's look at the Product Type field.
During the initial configuration of your SellerCloud system, there will be only one product type named "Miscellaneous." To create more product types click the "Manage" link next to the Product Type field. A Product Type page will open where you can add a new product type that matches the specific listing requirements of the various channels.
For example, if you are creating a T-Shirt, Amazon will categorize that as apparel, while eBay will categorize that as clothing. SellerCloud creates a overall category name to include within it the category names required by the sales channels. If your products are primarily under one Product Type, check the "Default Product Type" checkbox.
Product Conditions can be selected here. The condition field contains the category name for a set of conditions that are specific to various channels. We'll explain this more in a moment. To create product conditions, open the settings tab and click on Product Conditions. Click "Add New Condition", then create a category name, and select appropriate conditions for the various channels. For example, the SellerCloud Condition named "New" can include in it a condition for Buy.com called "Brand New."
All Product Attributes have a log history so you can track who changed an attribute and when. The log history will also show the product original and new values.
To access a log history of an attribute, click on the plus sign next to the attribute.
Now Let's look at uploading images.
Upload Images by clicking the "View All" link in the image panel. Choose a file image from your hard drive and click the "Upload Images" button. The image will appear in a box with option to set it as the gallery image, the description image, or a supplemental image. If you have multiple supplemental images, select the order of appearance from the drop down here. When your image settings have been configured, click Update Images and the image will be uploaded to the product. From the action menu, you can duplicate, delete, or upload to eBay. Select the image on which you want to perform the action and click "Process."
Another way to upload and manage product images is through ImageBridge, a SellerCloud desktop application. To learn more about ImageBridge's drag and drop capabilities, go to wiki.sellercloud.com/imagebridge.
Other fields to be entered include pricing, product and shipping weight, a short product description which displays on a landing page, a long product description which displays on a item specific page, the UPC code of the product, and Country of Origin. Click "Save Product" and the product will be updated in your catalog.
