  • Name*: Type the full name of the product. This will be used in reports and searches.

  • Purchase price (excl. tax)*: Add the amount it costs to buy and/or make the product, excluding tax. Tebi uses this to calculate the margin on a product. If you do not wish to fill this in, leave it €0.
  • Sales price: Add the amount you will charge customers for the product, including or excluding tax depending on the tax type you select below.
  • Prompt price while ordering: If the ‘prompt price’ switch is turned on, the pricing field will be prompted in the Sale Screen. Manually add the price each time you select the product. If the ‘prompt price’ is turned off, the sales price will be shown.
  • Tax type*: Select the tax rate for this product. This is the type of tax payable over your product or service. It can be VAT or sales tax, depending on your region.
  • Modifier only*: When ‘modifier only’ is switched on, this product is only available as a modifier on another product. If the switch is turned off the product will also be available as a stand-alone product. Find out how to add product modifiers.
  • Classification
    • Categories for reporting: Add categories to organize your products for reporting purposes in the Back Office.
      • Products can be linked to only one category.
      • E.g. gather all drinks with a VAT 21% under one category to gain insights on amounts sold.
    • Tags: Add tags to organize your products into groups for display on the Sale Screen in the Tebi App.
      • Products can be linked to multiple tags.
      • E.g., gather all coffee products under various group tags by giving cappuccino, espresso and latte the tag ‘coffee’ and ‘hot drinks’.
      • Tags are used for searching and discovering products.
  • SKU: Fill in the stock keeping unit (SKU), a unique identifier for your product:
    • SKUs are metadata and will not appear in the Tebi App.
    • If you don’t use SKUs, leave this field blank.
  • Appearance
    • Display name: A shorter name for the product in the App:
      • This name will appear on the product button on the Sale Screen.

E.g., a gin tonic costs €8, this consists of two products taxed separately: gin (€5, VAT 21%) and tonic water (€3, VAT 9%). Under ‘Reduced tax part’ you need to put ‘3’. The sales price stays €8.
  • Tap Save and your product will be completed.

Other product details:

  • GTIN: Fill in the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN), a universal ID for your product, found on the barcode of a product. To maintain consistency of your products and reports it is vital that GTINs are unique numbers and are only used for a single product:

    • A GTIN will be automatically generated by Tebi when you create a product.
