In general POS systems/applications, there are 2 initial steps that the user should do. First, users should fill in their product data. In the second step, users should stock up on the product they have input (add product stock).
Add Products Stock is an activity to input quantity from the stocks of products in the inventory. On DealPOS, there are three methods to fill the inventory for your products. In the following article, you can follow the steps below to input stocks for product inventory in the DealPOS system.
I. Using Products Menu
You can use the Products menu to fill the inventory from a product. We recommend using this method if the product that you want to fill the inventory is having an initial inventory (quantity from the beginning). If your products come from Suppliers, we recommend you make a filling inventory by using the buy menu.
Step 1. Go to Products, then Click Import
Step 2. Click Choose File, then Upload Selected File
If you want to import the initial amount of quantity products to your outlet, you can open more menu options and then select 'Yes' on the inventory update.

II. Using Buy Menu via UI & CSV File
You can also input the quantity stocks for your products by using the Buy menu if the products that you've ordered before came from the suppliers. Before inputting your product's inventory through the Buy menu, you have to make sure that the product data you want to fill the inventory has already been added to the system. To add new product data to the DealPOS system, you might like to read this article: Add New Product.
Step 1. Go to Buy, then Choose Outlet
Step 2. Input Product to Cart, then Click Pay
Add the items that you want to buy by clicking the Add Item button (+) (or using the F4 key shortcut) or by importing the items using CSV files.
