NetStores POS2Net Edit Product Details

From the Edit Product Details window, you can edit various details about the products located in your QuickBooks Point of Sale store.

The editable fields for the QuickBooks Point of Sale product details data includes the following:

“Export To Website” – By checking this you are signifying that you want this item to be exported to the NetStores E-Commerce Store during an export item list execution. And shown on the store shopping cart website. This box is checked by default.

“Shipping Weight” – This is the weight of an item, used in calculating shipping cost for the item by the e-commerce shopping cart.

“Thumbnail URL” – The location of the thumbnail picture displayed for this product by the e-commerce shopping cart software. Clicking the preview button will load the image into the preview window. If the image link is broken a red X will appear in the window. By default these values are set to equal. http://StoreDomain/images/Thumbnails/Item’s Alternative look up unit (ALU).jpg.

Example: http://www.AlsSportshut.com/images/thumbnails/xyz123.jpg

“Product Picture URL” - The location of the picture displayed for this product by the shopping cart software. Clicking the preview button will load the image into the preview window. If the image link is broken a red X will appear in the window. By Default these values are set to equal. http://StoreDomain/images/Item’s Alternative look up unit (ALU).jpg.

Example: http://www.AlsSportshut.com/images/xyz123.jpg

“Full Description” – This is the full description of the item to be displayed on the e-commerce shopping cart software. QuickBooks Point of Sale doesn’t have a full description box. So item’s full and proper description may be inputted here for display on the e-commerce shopping cart software.

Attribute Group ID - This number is automatically assigned to the item by POS2Net upon the first time you run Edit Product Details. This is why you are required to edit all items the first time you run Edit Product Details as POS2Net needs to see all the items that exist in QBPOS so it can evaluate this number correctly. This number is very important to stores that carry items with multiple attributes. This ID signifies the group that a certain item belongs to. Do not change this number unless you know for certain you want the item in a different group.

Attribute Ordinal - This number is automatically assigned to the item by POS2Net upon the first time you run Edit Product Details. This number signifies the order at which this item will appear on the options drop down list on the product catalog web page on your e-commerce shopping cart web page. The order of the items is assigned by common values such as small, medium, large, extra large, and also numerically. A large list of common types has been compiled for sorting but if any are missed you can manually edit the order here.
