This article will provide you with a brief overview of how Sellbrite works so you can get up and running quickly and be set up for success. Alright, let's get started!
Welcome to Sellbrite!
Sellbrite is an inventory and listing management system for multichannel sellers. We make it simple to manage what you sell, and where you sell it.
Your inventory is what you sell and how much of it you have. Sellbrite is your central hub for your inventory.
Each item in your inventory that you stock and sell is referred to in Sellbrite as a Product. You can add a product, edit a product, or list a product. This is done in the Selling Manager, within the Inventory tab.
The term inventory also means the quantity, or stock levels, of your Products. You can adjust inventory and receive inventory into the system. This is done in the Inventory Manager, within the Inventory tab.
A stock keeping unit or SKU (pronounced “skew”) is the unique identifier or code assigned to each specific product. The SKU is created and assigned by you, the merchant, to identify and track your own inventory and should be constructed in a way that has meaning to you. Your Products in Sellbrite must have SKUs.
Items you are offering for sale on a sales channel are called Listings. Your Listings from each channel are represented in Sellbrite in the Listings tab.
Linking refers to a connection (or mapping) between a listing and its corresponding product in your inventory.
If a listing uses the same SKU as a product, the two will be linked automatically. Listings without SKUs or with different SKUs than your inventory must be linked manually.
When your inventory in Sellbrite is linked to the listings imported from your sales channels, data can flow seamlessly from your inventory out to your listings. It also makes it possible for Sellbrite to adjust the stock levels in your inventory when orders are placed. Unlinked listings lead to inaccurate stock counts, overselling, and delayed fulfillment. Be sure that each item you sell on your channels - your listings - are linked (mapped) to a product in your Sellbrite inventory.
There are multiple ways to add your products and inventory to Sellbrite.
1. Automatically build them from existing listings
When you connect a sales channel and import your existing listings into Sellbrite, you have the option to automatically build your initial inventory from those listings. Your initial inventory will be set to the quantity found in the listings at the time of import. You may also create a product from a specific listing that has already been imported into Sellbrite.
