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.
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.
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’:
|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.|
Exporting or printing product information
At any stage you can export, as a CSV or PDF file, the inventory information you have on screen.
- To the right of the filter field, there is a drop down list labelled export.
- Click on it to select the kind of file you would like to save from Avasam.
- Select either a PDF file, or a CSV file.
- Avasam will process the information, and download the file through your browser for you.

Product short description/product long description/product specification
Enter information about your product in these three fields that can be used by your sellers to list and sell the product.
If you have a PDF file of the product's brochure or data sheet, add the link here.
If you can provide a link to the manufacturer's website or product page, add it here.
Drag and drop a video file of the item here to upload it to your inventory and make it available to sellers.
Custom options are the fields used to store information about a product such as colour, size, material and brand. The seller can then use this information as ‘product specifics’ when creating a listing.
To add a custom option:
- Click on the add option button.
Deleting a ‘Custom option’
- Click the ‘x’ to the right of each custom option, then confirm that you want to delete it.
Variation items allow you to sell groups of related products with the ability to choose the right item based on details of the products.
The add variation button allows you to connect or group additional SKUs under a particular product.
You can use the search field to filter the list of available SKUs:
Tick the select fields for the SKUs you want to add to the variation, then click the add button. Alternatively, ‘cancel’ clears the search without adding any variations.
- Click the ‘x’ to the right of the SKU you want to delete, then confirm that you want to delete the variation.
- The cancel button, or the inventory link at the top left of the page, allows you to return to the inventory without making any changes.
- Selecting the save button will save the relevant product before returning to the inventory page.
Viewing and editing product details
When you click on a product in the inventory a page will open to display the details of the product, as shown below.
