Next, you’ll need to add a variant for the product. To do this, go to the Variants tab and click “Add variant”. From here, you’ll need to select the variant options (such as size or color), enter the price and SKU (if you have one), and then click “Save variant”.

Once you’ve added the product and variant(s), it’s time to add inventory to them. To do this, go to the Inventory tab and click “Add inventory”. From here, you’ll need to select the product and variant(s) that you want to add inventory for, enter the quantity that you have in stock, and then click “Add inventory”.

PRO TIP: If you are planning to link your inventory to Shopify, be aware that there are some potential risks. First, if you have a lot of inventory, it can take a long time to upload all of your product information into Shopify. This can cause delays in your shop’s opening, and you may miss out on some sales while you are getting everything set up. Additionally, if you are not careful when linking your inventory to Shopify, you could accidentally create duplicate listings for your products. This can confuse customers and cause them to purchase the wrong items. Finally, be sure to regularly check your inventory levels in Shopify so that you can keep track of your stock and ensure that customers can always purchase the items they need.
