SalesBinder supports a very powerful feature, which we call “Item Variations”. This allows you to setup items with any number of varying attributes such as size, color, location, etc.

To put things simply, it allows you to answer this question: “How many Widgets, in size medium and color red, do I have at Warehouse #2?”.

Here’s how you can setup Item Variations:

  1. Create all your Locations (even if it’s just 1 location)
  2. Create your Attributes by going to “Manage Attributes” in the left menu (these can be applied to any quantity item)
  3. Add a new quantity Inventory Item (if you haven’t already)
  4. View the details of that item (inventory list -> click on name)
  5. Click on “Quantities & Variations” in the top toolbar
  6. Use the green Variation Attributes box (right side of screen) to add 1 or more attributes (which were created in step 2)
  7. Now that you have attributes associated to this item, click on “Add Item Variation” from the top toolbar
  8. In this window you can specify how many of each specific variation you have by filling out the attribute value and quantity

Note: Once you save all your different variations, when you create an order and want to add this item, it will let you select a specific item variation as you would expect.
