Hi. How can we help?

Adding and viewing product locations

Keeping track of where inventory is located can be a challenge for merchants who store products in their warehouse or across multiple locations. With product locations, you can record and view where your products are stored at the Aisle, Bay, Shelf, and Bin level per outlet right in Retail POS.

Understanding product locations

Adding product location details can help you and your staff quickly find where products are stored in your warehouse without having to memorize locations or set up separate tracking.

Users with Create and edit products user permissions can set up product locations for both standard and variant products.

Product locations feature the Aisle, Bay, Shelf, and Bin the product is in.

The product location fields:

  • Are optional.
  • Accept alphanumeric characters.
  • Have a limit of 255 characters.

You can record 2 product locations per SKU, per outlet.

Adding product locations

To add location information to a product:

  1. In Retail POS, navigate to Catalog > Products.
  2. Click the pencil icon next to the product you’d like to edit.
