Creating Items

1. Platform Connection (recommended)

Connecting your sales platform is the most streamlined method for inputting your products to Whiplash.

As part of your standard install process with Whiplash, you will connect your appropriate sales platform. During this process we will import your products automatically. Instructions for connecting the main platforms below. If you don't see your platform or have questions in general, don't hesitate to contact us.

2. Via Ship Notice

A second way to create items is via the Shipnotice portal.

You will create a Ship Notice any time you are sending us inventory. This gives us a heads up that inventory is on the way, and ensures a smooth receiving process. When creating a Ship Notice (Inventory > Ship Notices), you can create new products not previously associated with your Whiplash account.

Clicking on "Add Items" in the Ship Notice will allow you to add items currently in stock, but also give you the option to create a new item.

Once your new item has been created, it will bring you back to the Ship Notice, just click "Add Items" and let us know how many are on the way! 

3. Manually

Rarely needed, but in certain instances—like creating product bundles or promo items—you may need to add a product manually. You can add them one by one or in bulk by clicking Inventory -> New Item

Duplicate SKUs

If two of these methods overlap and you create duplicate SKUs, you can run our SKU De-Duplicator.

The SKU De-duplicator is also accessed in your Account > Preferences Menu.
