The catalog menu let's you define all the items and services you sell through all your channels. Vendors, Categories, Attributes and Brands all help you stay on top of your inventory. you can create custom attributes and attribute sets that let you sell and track inventory in ways that make sense to you and your customers.
Products can be 'simple' like a book or a bicycle pump,Matrix (made of more than 1 simple products) like an item that comes in sizes or colors.
Simple products also come as inventory and non-inventory products. Inventory products are tracked. MicroBiz Cloud monitors how many are in stock, whether any are committed to work orders or special orders. It reduces stock when you sell them and calculates your profit and return on investment for these items. Non-inventory products are items you choose not to track - either because they are not physical goods - like labor charges and delivery fees - or because they are not worth tracking (in your opinion) like maybe those trade in bikes stacked in the basement.
