I a new to Square Retail and have a large inventory catalog. What is the easiest way for me to add inventory from my current inventory library?
The easiest way is to import a CSV or Excel file into your item library in your Square Dashboard. Here is an article on Inventory Management, see the section on managing bulk inventory:
- Visit Items in your online Square Dashboard.
- Click Actions > Export Library.
- In this report, update your Stock Alert Enabled [Location] and New Quantity values and save the Excel (.xlsx) or CSV file to your computer.
Note: At this time, Excel (.xlsx) and CSV (.csv) file templates are the only supported file types for bulk import. Custom templates aren’t supported.
- Drag and drop your saved file to the Import Inventory window and click Upload > Confirm > Done.
Do you mean with the import tool? If using the import tool, it is very important that you assign the Square Core Product Attributes correctly.
Or are you adding an item manually in your Square Dashboard?
Regarding the size question, how I would recommend is something like the following:
To clarify, are you saying your current inventory has a row for each item in your inventory? So there are duplicate lines if you have two of something?
Yes. I am using the import tool. I am transferring from another ipad system and they come across as one by one on the items. looking at your example do I take out some of the tokens say I only assign one token for all sizes in Orange and one token for all sizes in Black?
Is it possible for one token with Square to have all Sizes and Colors grouped together? I sell clothes so the majority of my inventory has various colors and sizes. All I keep getting is every single item ends up with their own token. Is there an easy way to do this?
