Add Inventory Items

Inventory items are the various goods and services a business sells. Set up your items in BackOffice so cashiers can ring them up at the register. Employees with the relevant BackOffice permissions also have the ability to create items from the Android ShopKeep Register app.

JUUL® devices and JUULpods™ do not need to be set up as they have been automatically added to your account.

  1. Visit the 'Item List' from BackOffice or the Android ShopKeep Register app (employees with BackOffice permissions only).
    • In BackOffice, click ‘Items’ and select ‘Item List’.
    Click to Enlarge
    • In the Android ShopKeep Register app, tap ‘Setup’ on the register menu, then select ‘Manage Items’.

  2. Click 'Add New'.
    Click to Enlarge
  3. Select 'Create' under 'Basic Item' or 'Item with Variants'.
    • Basic items are sold individually or with modifiers.
    • Items with variants are items sold in variations (e.g. a single shirt with multiple sizes).
    Click to Enlarge
  4. If creating a basic item, quickly add the item by entering an ‘Item Name’ and ‘Item Price’, then clicking ‘Save’. If more details such as a UPC code, Department, or Supplier are required, tap ‘More fields…’ and follow the steps below.

Create Sales Restrictions

Sales restrictions allow businesses to regulate the purchase of specific items, such as alcohol and vape products, by age or quantity. Set up sales restrictions for any items you sell that have a minimum purchase age or maximum purchase quantity.

JUUL Labs™ products already have sales restrictions set up, so add restrictions for other items as needed.

  1. In BackOffice, click ‘Items’ and select ‘Sales Restrictions’.
    Click to Enlarge
  2. Click ‘Add New’.
    Click to Enlarge
  3. Fill in the ‘Details’ and ‘Settings’ fields.
    Click to Enlarge

    Restriction Name | How the restriction is identified on the BackOffice ‘Sales Restrictions’ page.
    Department | Select a department of items to restrict.
    Category | Select a category of items within the ‘Department’ to restrict or leave as ‘All categories’.
    Sales restrictions created for specific categories will override a department-level restriction in place for those categories, including if the department-level restriction has both an age and transaction limit but a category-level restriction has only one. Learn how to assign items to departments and categories here.

    Sales restrictions must have either an ‘Age Restriction’ or ‘Per Transaction Limit’ set but can also have both.
    Age Restriction | Minimum age a customer must be to purchase items from the selected ‘Department’ and ‘Category’.
    Per Transaction Limit | Maximum quantity of items from the selected ‘Department’ and ‘Category’ allowed on one sale.

  4. Click ‘Save’.
