Creating a Product Selection

In this article, learn how to add multiple products to a single image or video with a Product Selection.

A Product Selection is a compilation of products that are selected to add to multi-item videos and images (such as live sales, “shop the look” videos, and collage posts).

 

Creating a Product Selection will pull multiple products into a single collection so you can then link it to your sales posts and videos. It also allows you to curate products and calculate potential revenue for each.

Adding Products One by One

 

One way to create a Product Selection is to add individual products one at a time. 

 

1. Visit the Products tab in your CommentSold dashboard.

2. Click the three dots to the right of any product., then select Create Product Selection.

3. From here, you will select any products you want to include from a list of all current inventory. Click "Select" next to each product you want to add. 

 

Note: When adding items, you can see the potential revenue change in real-time. Use this to help you judge how much product you need to sell to meet your goals.

4. (Optional) If you’re creating a product selection for a live sale, you can choose the order in which you want your products to be presented on the Live Overlay banner. Click the four-way arrow next to your products and drag them into the desired order.

5. (Optional) CommentSold will auto-generate a unique identifier for each product that you add here. The identifier is the number that customers must type to claim that item. Ex: “Sold {identifier #}." You may change your products’ identifiers, but make certain that no two identifiers are the same. 

 

Note: If you are a wholesaler using CommentSold, you will need to change the identifiers to letters. This will allow your customers to claim multiple packs/items with a single comment.

 


6. At the top of this screen, type in a name under Product Selection Name. We suggest including the date here to make it easier to search for later.

7. Scroll to the bottom and click "Save Product Selection."

You will then be prompted to link a post.

 

 

If you've already created a post or started your live sale directly through Facebook, click "Link Now" to link it here. If not, exit this popup. You will be able to access and link it at a later time.

 

Adding Products in Bulk

 

The quickest way to create a Product Selection is to use the bulk action.

 

  1. From the Products tab, click the checkboxes next to each product you wish to be included in the selection. To select all products on the current page, click the checkbox in the first column heading.




  2. From the drop-down menu, click "Create Product Selection."



This will generate your bulk Product Selection. From here, you can name your Product Selection and rearrange the order of your products. 

3. Once you're done setting up your Product Selection, click "Save Product Selection."

 

You will then be prompted to link a post.

 


If you've already created a post or started your live sale directly through Facebook, click "Link Now" to link it here. If not, exit this popup. You will be able to access and link it at a later time.

 

Locating Saved Product Selections

 

You will be able to access your saved Product Selections at any time through the Products tab. Each Product Selection will be listed with the name that was assigned to it. 

 

If you can’t quickly find it on the first page, you can use the search bar.

 

 

Once you have located the Product Selection you are looking for, you can link it to a post, edit the selection, or remove it. Simply click the three dots next it to view your options.
