Add a Product

Megan Mokri Updated by Megan Mokri

Add a new product by clicking +Add. You'll be presented with a list of fields you can populate. Those marked with an asterisk (*) are required. All others are optional, depending on the level of detail you wish to provide your customers.

Tip: The phone icon indicates the information populated in the given field is visible to users on the store's menu screen. The detailed description and dietary information is viewable when a customer clicks on a menu item on the screen (example below).

Best Practices

There are a few things to keep in mind when creating a new product:

  1. Upload a nice image to allow customers to easily identify the pricing of items, and to create a visually compelling menu. The image size recommended is 4:3 aspect ratio, PNG or JPG format, 72 DPI resolution. Image size upload limit of 1.5 MB.
  2. Enter food costs in order to make the most of Byte's reporting. When you enter food costs, you'll be able to see the cost of spoilage (ie items removed during restocking) in your reporting.
  3. If you choose to enter allergens, your customers will be able to filter menu items based on their dietary needs. An example of what this looks like to your customer on the store's menu is below.
