Adding a Product
Take control of your business and create products with sufficient profit margins; margins that allow you to grow and scale your business.
Product: The combination of your recipe + items + packaging
Add-On: Ingredients added on to your items (i.e. sprinkles, coating, nuts, etc)
Item: An item is a portion of your recipe. For example, one batch of cookie dough makes 10 cookies, which equals 10 items.
This article will show you how to add your products and connect them to your recipes, items, and packaging to get your products' cost and profit.

Tip: If you have a lot of products (especially products that share the same recipe, item, and/or packaging), you want to make your product name as detailed as possible. For example, 25pc Mint Chocolate Truffles Case has a good naming structure that includes: the number of items, flavor, and package type.
