So if you have completed lesson one you will now see that we have our first order. Let’s now see how to add items to that order.
Items are added to orders by taking a photograph of the item and the optionally adding some information about that item. You can add all the information about the item as you add them, or if you prefer you can simple add a photograph of each item and then edit the pricing, styling, quantity etc. afterwards. Let’s start!
The Order Screen
Let’s first take a moment to look at the order screen. As we expect there are no order items here yet, we will do this in a minute. But first have a look at the top of the order screen where the order statistics or totals are kept. These figures will update in real time as you add items.
If you had added a budget for this Order it will be displayed here, along with the current spend for the order, and the balance which is budget – spend. Under these are the total number of items, the quantity which is the sum of the quantities of each item, and finally the retail value of the order. In brackets you will see the markup based on the supplier, if you didn’t set this then it will be set to ‘1’ by default. Of course you can edit this at any point by going into the supplier and it will update all orders for this supplier.
Adding Items (via camera)
To add a new item to the order click on the camera icon in the bottom right of the order screen. This will open the camera on your phone to allow you to take a photograph of the item. (If this is the first time to do this you may get a warning from your device to say that Buyerpix wishes to access your camera, this is normal and it will only every use the camera as part of capturing your product images).
After you click the camera to capture the image you will be brought back into the Buyerpix App where you can now view the image (retake if you are not happy with it), and add any information that you would like to add.
So what can we add to the order item? (see here for more details about these items)
Style Name / Code – this can be any text value, the dress name, code etc.
Cost Price – the cost price of the item
Quantity – The number of this item you are buying
Product Type – A category of the item, e.g. Dress, Top, Trousers
Colour – the colour of the item, e.g. Black, Red, etc.
Notes/Comments – any other text you want to add about this item.
Lets add some data here and see how it looks after:
Notice how the overlay values on the image update as we add the cost price and quantity. You should also note that the order header at the top also updates so now we can see how this item affects the overall order budget and spend.
Once we are happy with our product item, tap save and the App will then go back into Camera mode to capture our next item. Remember, to exit out of here we simply click exit.
When we exit back to our main order screen you will see the thumbnail of the item, but with the pricing and quantity still overlaid.
Thats how simple it is to add items. So continue with this process until you have captured your entire order.
Remember, if you prefer you can take the images of each order item first, and then edit the pricing, quantities etc. later on.
Adding Items from the Camera Roll
In the last section we showed how to add order items from your camera. But, is is also possible to add order items from existing images on your camera. You might wish to use this option if you are using stock images or are ordering online or through a B2B portal.
To do this, click ‘Edit’ in the Order screen which will bring up an option list at the bottom of your screen. Select ‘Upload From Camera Roll’ and you will then be able to select the image for the item you wish to create. The process after this is the same as adding from your camera.
Thats all for this part. In our next lesson we will have a closer look at the orders screen and the various options you can use in it.
