Creating/Editing Products

A product is an item or service for sale.

2. You can track a lot of details about products; however, only the fields with green font are required. The required fields are:

  • Product Name (Parentheses are not allowed and a hyphen is supported and recommended as a replacement)
  • Product Description
  • Unit per Issue (How many are sold with 1 click of the button.  The unit per issue is usually 1.  An example of when the unit per issue is not 1 is a two-pack of T-shirts.  The unit per issue in that case is 2.
