Los Angeles, CA — At SQQUID, we’re all about helping retailers grow their online sales and from countless discussions with our customers we understand that merchandising is one of the most important parts of their online strategy. That’s why we invest heavily in developing best-in-class merchandising solutions. As one of our customer’s case study shows, SQQUID’s Merchandising feature has already proven to be an indispensable tool for retailers.
“SQQUID Merchandising helps us generate more online sales by enabling us to launch new products faster and by making it easy to change products in response to market conditions. The simplicity of its interface also reduced our operating costs by replacing complex import/export spreadsheets and eliminating the need for dedicated merchandising personnel.”
Daniel Kahalani, CEO, DNA Footwear
Merchandising is one of the key pieces of the omnichannel retailing solution that SQQUID delivers to our customers and today we are pleased to announce a major set of improvements to this already powerful feature.
Merchandising, YOUR way
We know that deploying a new merchandising system or switching from your old one to SQQUID can be a challenge, especially for retailers who already have certain established processes that they’d like to retain. That’s why we’ve made our system as flexible as possible to make sure that we can accommodate virtually any merchandising workflow.
New customers who have existing stores on Shopify, BigCommerce or Magento, can deploy SQQUID seamlessly, without having to make drastic process changes which can involve system reconfigurations, staff retraining and online store adjustments. SQQUID is now designed to adjust to YOUR workflow, not the other way around.
Advanced product field configurations
Who hasn’t made a silly mistake with Excel import/export spreadsheets? We all have! We’re humans and humans make mistakes. That’s why, when we built our product catalog editor, we aimed to not only eliminate the dreaded import/export spreadsheets, but to fix all of their shortcomings to ensure that we deliver a 100% reliable tool that safeguards your catalog against user errors. The following features from SQQUID do exactly that, and more:
- Field-level data validation ensures that proper information is typed into each field to help guard against typos and data type mistakes.
- Product-level create/update flags help build sophisticated rules on how new products in the catalog should be handled by SQQUID.

Sync and field mapping enhancements
Several catalog and inventory enhancements now help retailers have better control over the synchronization of their products between their POS/ERP and their online stores. Whatever your preferred merchandising process is, SQQUID can support it:
- Merchandise all products on all channels using SQQUID
- Merchandise only some products using SQQUID and ignore others
- Have SQQUID sync only inventory levels while keeping product details unchanged
- Have SQQUID create products automatically from POS data, but merchandise using an online channel like Shopify
- Exclude certain products from some of your online channels but not for others
- Set default sync options for new products
- Define product matching schemas between POS/ERP and online channels
And many more… (contact us and we can discuss it)
Of course, we haven’t forgotten about our users! (i.e. the people actually tasked with making changes to the product catalogs) To help retailers become more efficient merchandisers, we have added en masse merchandising features like copy-and-paste of item attributes and group edits.
Instead of scrolling through dozens of columns, users can now select the columns they want to see and hide the ones they don’t.
And last, but not least, our catalog search now features advanced search options to help users quickly find the products they are looking for.
