Inventory Control > Add Item

This page allows you to add a new item. Using this page you will be able to add
an item’s name, description, price, category. If you have not created any
categories yet, you are able to do so at: 
Manage > Categories > Add

For example if you wanted to create a new item for your book
store, you would first want to create a subcategory of your main category. You
would navigate to the ‘Add Category’ page and create a subcategory called
Biographies. Then you would navigate to the ‘Add Item’ page to create your item
called Abe Lincoln’s Biography, with a description ‘a great book on Abe’s life’,
a price of $10, and the category Biographies. 

The other way you can add
items to the shop is through the import/export function, which would allow you
to add multiple items at once through a spreadsheet. (Imports/Exports > Import
Item Data).
