Hi. How can we help?

Creating products with B2B Catalog when ordering or receiving stock

Ordering and receiving stock is an agile process. When you run into products that are recorded in purchase orders and have yet to be added to your Retail POS catalog, you can skip the manual process and add them directly using the Lightspeed B2B Catalog.

Understanding the B2B Catalog

When ordering or receiving products, you can search for and add products to your Retail POS catalog directly from the B2B Catalog, saving time inputting product details manually and slowing down your stock management workflows.
