Attracting Sales by Using Sales

As you create items for you Vendio store, you can set a sale price, start date and end day, but what if you didn’t set these when you created your items and don’t feel like editing all your items?

Well, you can use Find and Replace to do those changes in bulk.

Let’s suppose you wanted to put all your red sweaters on sale. Just go to My Items, and select the Find and Replace button, Find “red sweaters”, and change the price either by % or dollar amount.

You’ll want to find the same items again and set a sale date, and again for sale end date.

Find and Replace is a method to replace fields that you used or did not use when you were creating your items so while it does take above three steps to put items on sale, find and replace allows so much flexibility that the possibilities are endless.

Below are step by step instructions for putting items on sale and after you do this once, it will be a snap and you’ll be having sales and attracting new business in no time!!
