About Managing Existing Products


Once you add a product to your CommentSold inventory, you may need to edit or make changes to the product information, media, or variants. Managing your inventory in such a way allows you to keep your inventory records accurate and up-to-date.

Some of the actions we review below require enablement to appear. If you do not see a field, contact our Support Team via the chat icon in the bottom-right corner of your CommentSold dashboard for assistance.

  Using another inventory system? If you use another inventory system that you've integrated with CommentSold, such as Shopify, you may need to manage products on that platform.

How Managing Products Benefits Your Shop


  • Control your inventory levels to meet customer demand and reduce inventory overspending costs.
  • Post products to your webstore, mobile app, and social media to entice your shoppers to make a purchase.
  • Update collections for easy product shopping by category on your webstore and mobile app.

Manage Products from Your Product Page


The Products page displays a list of all products and product selections you've added to CommentSold. From this page, you can complete actions for individual and multiple products and product selections.
