Ways to create new 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 tells us 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!
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, or navigating to Browse/Search and clicking "Import Items."
