Adding a New Product

Updated 1 year ago by Kory Lamme

Entering a new product into SuperSalon involves going into the Products submenu, and creating a new profile for it. Much of the information to be entered into a product profile is optional, but this example will show all configuration details being used. The following instructions are universal for all versions of the SuperSalon POS.

Entering a New Product

  1. In the Manager menu, click or tap on the "Products" submenu, alphabetically listed on the left.
  1. Click or tap on the "New Product" button.
  1. Enter any unique numeric code as the "Product Code". Alphanumeric product codes can be used, however numeric ones are more highly recommended.
  1. The product description should show the name of the product, and perhaps the size. Enter this into the "Description" text field.
  1. Optionally, a unique "Vendor Code" can be entered into the next text field.
