Creating a Product Selection

In this article, learn how to add multiple products to a single image or video with a Product Selection.

 

A Product Selection is a compilation of products that are selected to add to multi-item videos and images (such as live sales, “shop the look” videos, and collage posts).

 

Creating a Product Selection will pull multiple products into a single collection so you can then link it to your sales posts and videos. It also allows you to curate products and calculate potential revenue for each.

Adding Products One by One

 

One way to create a Product Selection is to add individual products one at a time. 

 

1. Visit the Products tab in your CommentSold dashboard.

2. Click the three dots to the right of any product, then select "Create Product Selection".

3. From here, you will select any products you want to include from a list of all current inventory. Click "Select" next to each product you want to add. 

 

Note: When adding items, you can see the potential revenue change in real-time. Use this to help you judge how much product you need to sell to meet your goals.

4. (Optional) If you’re creating a product selection for a live sale, you can choose the order in which you want your products to be presented on the Live Overlay banner. Click the four-way arrow next to your products and drag them into the desired order.

5. (Optional) CommentSold will auto-generate a unique identifier for each product that you add here. The identifier is the number that customers must type to claim that item. Ex: “Sold {identifier #}." You may change your products’ identifiers, but make certain that no two identifiers are the same. 

 

Note: If you are a wholesaler using CommentSold, you will need to change the identifiers to letters. This will allow your customers to claim multiple packs/items with a single comment.

 

6. At the top of this screen, type in a name under Product Selection Name. We suggest including the date here to make it easier to search for later.

7. Scroll to the bottom and click "Save Product Selection."

You will then be prompted to link a post.

If you've already created a post or started your live sale directly through Facebook, click "Link Now" to link it here. If not, exit this popup. You will be able to access and link it at a later time.

 

Adding Products in Bulk

 

The quickest way to create a Product Selection is to use the Bulk Action menu.

 

  1. From the Products tab, you can click individual checkboxes next to each product you wish to be included in the selection. Or, you can select products in bulk. Simply click the checkbox in the first column heading to select all products on the current page.

    Note: You may need to adjust the number of entries that are displayed on each page to select more items at once. 
  2. Click green Bulk Action menu, then scroll down to click "Create Product Selection."

This will generate your bulk Product Selection. From here, you can name your Product Selection and rearrange the order of your products. 

3. Once you're done setting up your Product Selection, scroll down and click "Save Product Selection."

 

You will then be prompted to link a post.

Managing Product Selections

 

Once your Product Selections are saved, you will be able to access them at any time through the Products tab. Each Product Selection will be listed with the name that was assigned to it. 

 

If you can’t quickly find it on the first page, you can use the search bar to search for terms contained in its name. In the example below, we searched the term "live".

You can also use filters to narrow your search. To show only Product Selections, click the "Filters" button at the top. From the popup, select the filter "Is a Product Selection". Then click "Apply". 

 

Once you have located the Product Selection you are looking for, you can perform a few different actions. Click the three dots to the right of the product selection to see your options.

 

Link to Post - Attach your Product Selection to a social post or live video.

 

Edit Selection - This option allows you to edit or add more inventory to your Product Selection.

 

Add to a Collection - Attach the products contained in your Product Selection to a Collection for use in your CommentSold Webstore and/or mobile app.

 

Publish to Webstore - Publish all products in a Product Selection to the Webstore. This option is handy for bulk publishing products to your Webstore.

 

Print Live Helpers - Live Helpers are printables that contain a list of items from your Product Selection including each of their barcodes and essential details to help you through your live sale. Print them off with this option.

 

Print Live Helpers with Location - This option allows you to print off Live Helpers that contain inventory locations for each of your Live Selection's products.

 

Download Sales Report - After you have sold items from your Product Selection, you can use this option to download a CSV containing vital sales metrics.

 

Remove - This option will remove the Product Selection from CommentSold.
