The Manage Products page shows a complete list of your inventory, including details on selling price, total quantity, listed quantity and linked products. From here you can:

  • Filter - use the drop-down filter box to search products by field, price, quantity, linked quantities and more
  • Edit - click the pencil icon Icons.pngto the right of the product or the title/SKU
  • Bulk edit - select the products (ticking the box to the left) and clicking one of the bulk edit actions at the top (edit, delete, print product labels or export) 
  • Product sync - merge products and variations or link quantities 

Before adding products to Expandly, ensure you add the necessary brandssuppliers and variations

You can find these in the Configuration section (left menu) or click on the links above to follow more detailed instructions

Click Add Product (top right) and select:

You can also copy an existing product. 

1. To import existing products from your sales channels, click Products & Listings (left menu) > [Sales Channel] > Manage Listings

1. From the Manage Products page click Product sync (top right) and select either:

  • Product merge - Linking a product without variations that has a different SKU or product title
  • Variation merge - Linking a product with variations that has different SKUs or product titles
  • Linking quantities - Linking the quantities of a product with variations on one sales channel but no variations on another sales channel

2. Select the primary product on the next screen and click Next to map the primary variations

3. Confirm the merge does not infringe the rules of your sales channels
