This article covers several product detail options that control how you use and sell some products in Vagaro.
The options we’ll be covering are:
- Drop-ship (next section)
- Track/Do Not Track
- For Business Use Only
- For Bundle Use Only
- Packaging Product
- Sell Product Online
- Filter Inventory Search
All these options are on the Product edit screen: Settings > Things We Sell > Inventory. Either use Edit > Add a Product (at the top of the inventory screen) or when you edit an existing product (More > Edit at the end of each product entry row.)
Drop Ship Product
If you sell a product that you don’t want to or cannot stock in your business, you can set the Drop Ship switch to send an email to the product vendor instructing them to ship directly to the buyer.
When you set Drop Ship Product on, you’ll see that the Do Not Track switch is also activated, and the system hides the fields for Quantity, Low Quantity Warning, and Max Quantity.
Currently, Drop Ship Product is only for use with products that are sold online, so remember to set Sell Product Online to On.
Do Not Track
Businesses can now sell products that are not tied to inventory. Examples of products you could set as "Do Not Track" are non-physical products, which would include fees (like Aroma Therapy and PPE fees) and items used in services but not tracked for inventory. Do Not Track is also used with Drop Ship Product because you do not have to track inventory of things that are shipped to your customer from the vendor.
To set Do Not Track: From the product detail screen, in Track Product Inventory, set the switch to Do Not Track. The fields for Quantity, Low Quantity Warning, and Max Quantity are not shown when Do Not Track is on.
For Business Use Only
Set this switch if you have products that you do not want to make available to customers. Setting it on removes the switch for Sell Product Online.
For Bundle Use Only
Use for products that are only to be sold as part of a Bundle. See Creating Product Bundles for details. Setting it on removes the switch for Sell Product Online.
When you have products that you use for packaging: gift boxes, shipping boxes, other shipping supplies, that are not sold to customers either alone or as part of a bundle, set this switch On. Setting it on removes the switch for Sell Product Online.
Sell Product Online
Set On for products that can be sold through your Vagaro Online Store. To use this, you must have set up your Vagaro Shopping Cart. (See How to Add the Online Shopping Cart.)
When you turn Sell Product Online on, you must enter shipping-related information about the product.
- Dimensions (length, width, and height in inches)
- Weight in pounds
- Free Ground Shipping: Set on to allow free product shipping. The Shipping and handling surcharges will automatically display a $0 cost. If you do not want to offer free ground shipping, enter a shipping and handling cost.
- To set a flat rate shipping price, select Flat Rate Shipping. Then enter a price for 1st Item Shipping Price and Additional Item Shipping Price (if used). For more about flat rate shipping, see How to set a Flat Rate Shipping Cost.
Filter Inventory Search
You can limit the items displayed by using filters. The main filter on the listing screen lets you filter the list by Inventory Type.
Tap Select Inventory Type and then select check boxes to select which types to show:
Additional filters are on the screen and under Advanced Filters.
- Zero quantity products only - show product inventory with no stock
- Low quantity products only - show product inventory with low stock
- In Stock products only - show product inventory of items that are in stock
Open Advanced Filters, and then select a Brand, Product Type, and Vendor to limit the displayed inventory. Click Search when you've configured your filtering options. Use your browser refresh option to clear any filters.
