Description: Allows you to type in or change the displayed text description that appears on a web listing.   A WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor allows you to change the attributes of the text like you would in a word processor.

Note: This description is stored separately from what appears on a tag.  Changing this description will not change what prints out on a future tag.






HTML: If you have web development experience, you can edit the HTML code directly by switching to the HTML tab.




Adding Package Information


Enter the Weight, Length, Height, and Width of a package here.





This information can also be entered using Inventory Module and that information will propagate here when saved and changes in Listing Manager will reflect in Inventory Module

Note: The information will not change in Inventory Module until the item tab is saved and closed in Listing Manager


Dimensional Weight is a calculation used by many shipping carriers. It applies extra shipping charges for items that are light in actual weight, but large in shipping volume.


A warning will appear if your package is oversized, reminding you to check if the shipping service being used will handle a package with these dimensions.




Adding Images To Your Shopify / ShopRW Web Listing


To add images to a listing from Listing Manager open the listing and click the add button on the right in the images frame.





Select an image to add to the listing.


You can select multiple images by using ctrl-click or shift-click.





If your image(s) are larger than 200KB, Listing Manager will give a warning. Click OK to proceed.


Note: It is recommended to keep images smaller than 200KB for web optimization purposes, but larger images are not restricted and will upload normally after the warning message.





Images for the listing will be displayed on the right side and will upload to the website when listing an item or updating a listing.





Setting A ShopRW / Shopify Item To Ready To List


If you are editing a listing that was not ready to list, you can checkmark Ready to List! at the top and click Save.

Note: Items that are set as Ready to List will sync automatically to their appropriate web marketplace after a few minutes and require no further action.
