Introduction to Trendful's Inventory Management System
Welcome to our new Inventory Management System, a powerful tool that allows you to easily manage your inventory and listings across different platforms, including Shopify. In this guide, we will show you the capabilities of our system.
Our Inventory Management System comes with a wide range of features that make it easy for you to manage your inventory and listings. Here are some of the capabilities that you can expect.
With our system, you can easily add products to your inventory with just one click. Most of the product information, such as brand, title, description, cost, listing price, and storage location, are automatically populated from the offer, which makes the listing creating process a breeze.
Our system allows you to add and edit product details, sku number, entrupy certificate number, sale price, and more. You can also manually add products from wholesalers or other sources.
You can easily list your products on Shopify (created as drafts) with just one click. Our system will automatically update your listing if you make any changes on Shopify or if your product sells. To learn how to connect your Shopify store to Trendful, read this guide.
You can also export your products as CSV, which can be used to import products in bulk into another Inventory Management System if you're not using Shopify.
You can search products by their brand, title, sku number and entrupy certificate number.
Our system allows you to easily navigate between the offer in the Offer Management System, the product in the Inventory Management System, and the listing on Shopify.
And we have exciting news! We are constantly working to improve our Inventory Management System and will be releasing new capabilities soon. This will include bulk import and listing features, as well as enhanced synchronization capabilities. Stay tuned for more updates!
Please note that in this version, if you update a product in Trendful after it has already been listed on Shopify, the changes won't be reflected on your Shopify listing. To ensure your listings remain up-to-date, we recommend updating your product information directly on Shopify.
Also, please keep in mind that only products created in the Trendful Inventory Management System and then listed to Shopify will be tracked. If you create a product directly on Shopify, it will not synchronize with our Inventory Management System.
Connecting our Inventory Management System to your Shopify store is easy. Here are the steps:
- Log in to your Shopify store and navigate to the Apps section via Settings > Apps & sales channels > Development.
If you are subscribed to either the Pro or Enterprise Plan, you will be able to locate the Trendful custom app in the list. Simply click on it to proceed. Alternatively, if you are not subscribed to either of these plans, you can refer to this guide which provides step-by-step instructions on creating a Trendful custom app for your Shopify store.
