In this article, you will get to know more about how you add your products and relevant product information.
You will specifically learn more about:
- Where and how you are Creating a Product
To access Products, you start out by clicking on 📦 Products in the menu on the left-hand side.
Next, you click on the "+ / plus" button in the upper right corner, to create a Product. The window below will appear.
Creating a Product
When creating a Product, some information is mandatory:
- Product name *
- SKU *
- Category *
- Stock *
- Case quantity *
These are marked with a "* / star".
The remaining data is optional – we however recommend that you fill in as much data as possible. This will help you out later down the road and give your retailers, buyers and sales agents all the relevant product information they need.
What is SKU?
SKU is short for Stock Keeping Unit. Each product has its own unique SKU number used to identify the specific product and track inventory.
What is EAN?
EAN is short for European Article Number (sometimes also called International Article Number), and is essentially the barcode number of the product.
What are Variants? Variants are – as the name suggests – variants of a product. So this means several products that are predominantly the same, except for one or several small variations. A Variant can for example be size, color, measures and weight.

In Turis you can divide your products into categories. These categories will make it easier for your Retailers and Buyers to navigate your shop, when they are browsing your products.
There are two types of categories; Category and Sub category. To add a category you simply click on "Select options *" followed by "Add category" and then type in the name of the category. The same method goes for sub-categories.
Category: Women's Wear and/or Men's Wear
Sub-categories: T-shirts, Shirts, Jackets & Coats, Trousers, Footwear etc.
* we recommend keeping it simple to give your users a manageable overview

This is where you manage your Product pricing. There are two types of prices to manage:
- Price: the price your retailers, buyers and sales agents purchases your product at
- RRP: the price you recommend your retailers to resell your products at in their shops
What is RRP?
RRP stands for Recommended Retail Price. This is the price that you recommend your retailers to resell your products to in their shops.
If you sell in multiple currencies, you can set the prices for the specific product in all currencies (you set your currencies by going to ⚙️ Settings in the left-hand side menu and then go to Currencies).
If there is a product you only sell in a specific currency and not others, you simply do not fill out the price in the currencies where the product is not available. In that way, the product will not be displayed to the retailers buying in that specific currency.
🔔 Please note: if a product does not have a price, it will not be displayed in your shop. Therefore, make sure to add the price to ensure your product is visible.
Manage special price lists
To create a Special Price List you firstly go to ⚙️Settings in the left-hand side menu, followed by clicking on Companies. Then the window below will appear.
To create a "New Special List" simply click on the "+ / plus" button and then give your list a name followed by assigning it to a specific currency. You have now created a Special Price List.
You can now go back to Products, by clicking on Products in the left-hand side menu. Then open the specific product you want to assign to the Special Price List you just created, followed by clicking on "Manage Special Price List".
Now you simply type in the special price for the product, and the price will overrule the standard price.
These are the 8 steps in creating a Special Price List:
- Go to Settings > Companies
- Click on Create New Special Price List
- Give it a name and assign a currency
- Now, go to Products and click on the product you want to add the Special Price List
- The product window opens and now click on Manage Special Price lists
- Type in the price and click 'Save'
- Now, go to Users > Retailers
- Select a Retailer you want to assign to the Special Price List and choose the list you have made
🔔 Please note: the lowest price will always overrule.
If you instead have Retailers and Buyers that have discounts that are not product-specific, but rather a discount on all products, you manage them in the 👤 Users section under the specific Retailer and Buyer.
Manage discount tiers
What are Discount Tiers?
Discount tiers is a way to encourage Buyers to shop larger quantities of a given product by applying discounts. This essentially mean, you can give a product-based discount that increases when buying larger quantities of that particular product.
This feature is product-specific, meaning you define and set up a discount tier individually for a specific product.
To get started click find the product you want to set up Discount Tiers for.
Click on the product and then on 'Manage Discount Tiers'.
Then this window opens up for you to choose a currency from.
Here you simply click the 'Currency' dropdown and the menu will unfold. You get to select from the currencies that are already defined and set for your shop.
*If you want to add or delete a currency from your shop, then go to Settings > Currencies.
🔔 Please note: a discount tier is currency-specific, meaning if you set a tier to be in EUR, only Retailers with EUR as the shopping-currency can see this discount tier.
Then you select one of the currencies that are set and available for your shop. You will then be directed to this window.
Here you get to set a minimum amount of cases* and select a discount framework.
*cases refer back to the case quantity defined for the product.
For the Discount Tiers we are making here we are starting out by typing in '3' as we do not want the discount tiers to be activated before a customer adds '3' cases. Then we jump to 'Select Discount'. Here you can choose between Percentage (%) or Amount.
In this example we are going to stick with Percentage (%).
Now with this configuration, when a customer adds '3' cases of the product 'Cashews' a Discount Tier of 10% will be added.
You can add more Discount Tiers to this product, if you want to incentivize customers to buy more cases to obtain a larger discount.
Simply click the "+ / plus" to add more tiers.
When you have defined and added the Discount Tiers you want, remember to click "Save", to save your updates.
Once you have clicked "Save" your window will look like this.
We have now set up 3 Discount Tiers for the product 'Cashews'.
What does it look like for my Buyers?
For you a Buyer shopping in your shop (only in EUR) it will look like this when they click and add the product to the basket.
If we then add more cases to the basket, the product will follow and trigger the other Discount Tiers defined and set up previously.
To add an image to your product you simply click the "+ / plus" button in the bottom of the product window, and then upload the image(s) for that specific product. If you have already uploaded the images to the 🖼️ Media Library, they will already be visible for you to choose from.
Tick the box(es) of the image(s) you want to add and click "Add images".
A red frame will indicate that the image is the main product image, meaning it will be this image that is displayed first to your customers.
In this case it will be the green t-shirt that is displayed first.
Once you are done remember to hit "Save".
🔔 Please note: we recommend using images with a file size of 800 - 1000 KB. Uploading images in bigger sizes can affect the loading time of your shop.
