Webstore Item: usually a tangible item that students can purchase optionally. Items can have a stock quantity or an open stock which means that students can purchase as many of the item as they would like to. (i.e. clothing, yearbooks, sports tickets, dance tickets, directories, etc.)
Adding a New Item

- General Ledger: items will be grouped by GL account for accounting purposes. See General Ledger Manager
- Form: an external (non-registration) form can be associated with an item. This is created in the Form Manager. If a form is attached to an item, then the form will need to be completed in order for the purchase to go through. (i.e. parking permits, dance contracts, field trip waivers, etc.)

3. Click Save & Continue. You will be asked to enter additional information for the item - Item Attributes. Bold fields are mandatory for the item to appear in the Parent Portal. Click "Add Attribute" to add additional properties.

- Stock: if there is a stock quantity of an item, you can include it here. Students can only purchase the item if there is enough in stock. Keep at 0 if there is no set stock.
- Reorder: the amount of times a parent can order/purchase an item. Keep at 0 if a parent can reorder an item as much as they want.
- Price: price that students will purchase an item for
- Special Price: price for "special members" (Please disregard if you are not using the Special Member feature for returning students)
- Image: image will appear in the Parent Portal. Images help students/parents see visuals of the item they are purchasing. If there are multiple attributes, only the first image uploaded will appear.
4. Click Save once you are done.
5. If you create the item at the DCP level, you will need to assign it to the SCP in order for it to appear in the Parent Portal. See Assigning District Items, Fees, Fines, and Donations to the School
