Millions of Pre-Loaded Items

Save time by importing completed item information from top suppliers in multiple industries, like bike, clothing and electronics.

Sort and Search Items

Simplify searches by sorting items into categories such as “shoes”, and tag items for common traits like in-store location, season, material, sale status, or anything else you want!

Matrices of Item Variants

Save time by creating multiple variants of an item — such as size, color, and material — at the same time, and later edit all of those items together.

Combine Items to Sell Together

Assemble individual items and parts to sell as a combined SKU. The cost is calculated automatically, but you set the sell price. Easily disassemble items back into inventory, too.

Manage items that are purchased in bulk, such as a 12-case of soda sold as 6-packs or individually. Lightspeed Retail will suggest sell prices for each item.
