Where and how to edit and delete products in Thrive.

There are many ways to manipulate and change your products in Thrive. Edit or delete products one by one or in bulk.

Below are a few great options to get you started and make the best use of your time. And don't forget, we also have bulk spreadsheets where you can edit your whole catalog at once.


Editing on the Product Details page (one-by-one)

From the Products page, click on any product name to begin editing the following fields:

  • Product Images can be managed by clicking on the "Manage images" button on the right 

  • Changing the Product name will update all the Variants of that Product in both Thrive and your POS/E-commerce integration (including Bundle Variants).

  • Categories can be edited and deleted simply by typing in the field. You can have as many or as few categories as you like. You can also drag and drop Categories to re-order them.

  • Variants can be edited, added, or deleted by clicking the gear wheel in the Variants & Defaults sections. Variants have their own inventory quantities and appear as their own entries at the register.

  • SKU and Barcode fields are optional.

  • The "Track inventory" toggle allows you to stop counting inventory for service Products (e.g. haircuts) or other non-inventory sales. It must be enabled to add a quantity. 

  • Converting your product (or variant) into a Bundle can be done by clicking the gear wheel in the Variants & Defaults section. This will create a relationship between products or variants where a set quantity will be deducted from another product or variant when a sale occurs.

  • If a Product is "Active" it is available for syncing out to your POS. If the Product is for inventory purposes only (like an ingredient or another bulk Product), you can turn this off and it will not show up for sale.

  • Multiple Locations can be managed here; if a location is disabled, the Product will not be tracked as part of that pool of inventory. The location and integration must be enabled for a Product to show up for sale. If you see the words "No enabled integrations," you can click on that to enable an integration and allow sales.

  • List price, cost, and quantity can all be edited for each location, or you can simply Enable the Use defaults toggle

  • To turn a Tax Rate on or off, simply click on the slider. (NOTE: Available tax rates are enabled by default when creating a new Product)

  • Shipping data can also be managed in the product settings at the bottom of the page.

By clicking the gear cog in the top right corner of the page, you'll see even more options:

  • Sync product to integrations - This action performs a manual sync of the product to all enabled integrations. This is a great option if you made changes to the product in Thrive, but aren't seeing them show up on your integration yet. For more syncing troubleshooting tips, check out this article.

  • View audit log - A track record of the general changes or updates that have been made to the product.

  • Copy Product - This action will create a duplicate version of the current product, with the exception of the SKU and we'll add the word "Copy" to the product title to avoid future confusion.

  • Generate SKUs - By running this task, Thrive will generate a SKU for any SKU field on the product that is currently blank. You can learn more about Thrive-generated SKUs in this article.

When you're done, just click Save to keep all your changes or Close to discard them!


Editing on the Products page (in bulk)

To manage the costs and quantities of more than one product at a time, a bulk upload spreadsheet is the most efficient option.
