Customize Your Vendio Account

1. Customize My Items

Your imported products and any products that you create are located under My Items. Select My Items from the Items tab.
2. Click the Gear icon on the top right corner to bring up a list of your View Options.

View Options are fields that can be added or removed from the form, at will, depending on your individual needs.
3. Choose the fields that you want displayed on the My Items page. Click OK when finished.

Change the order your fields appear on the page by clicking on the column header and dragging to a new position.

You can resize the columns by positioning the cursor in between the columns headers.

Create Items is located under the products by selecting Create Items.
5. Customize each different section of the Create Items by clicking the Gear Icon on the right and checking only those fields that you will use.

If you use profiles, some fields included in the profiles can be eliminated as they will be pre-filled. You will see the fields appear on the form as you check/uncheck the boxes.

When finished, click Save and then the Gear Icon to Close.
6. Customize Sold Items.

Sold Items are located under the Orders tab.

Important Notes

Existing Account - If you have an existing Vendio account that is either closed or not currently registered for any listing management tools, we will need to move the eBay ID on file to your new account. You will need to send us the new Vendio account name and the old Vendio account name, along with your Auctiva account name. You may send this information by clicking the "Help" link in your account and submitting a support request (click the email option.)
