Suppliers: Inventory overview

This is a brief summary of the functions on our inventory page

This help article is written for our suppliers and may not be relevant if you are an Avasam seller. To access seller-specific articles, please follow this link.

Inventory

The inventory in Avasam contains information about all the products you offer to sellers.

When you first login to the Inventory, or if you have set a very strict filter that doesn’t match any of the items in the inventory, you will see a no data/no results screen.

Once you have added some items to the inventory (or turned off the filter), the screen will display items.

Inventory filter

The information about the products in your inventory can be easily filtered by entering the customer’s details in the search box or by clicking on ‘filter’:

 

Field Description
Price Set limits based on values (such as less than, greater than, equal to)
Category Change the product category to limit what is shown.
SKU Search Search based on the product SKU or barcode.
