  1. Add your different Suppliers.

  2. Once the Shopify download is complete, map your products to the Suppliers you have just added following these instructions.

  3. If you have any, add all your outstanding POs in the Orders section.

  4. If you offer any Bundles, you will need to add them following these instructions.

  5. Head to the Billing section to Activate Plan.

  6. In the Inventory Settings, check your SKU mapping is correct.

  7. If it applies, create your Raw Materials Catalogue following these instructions.

    Note: it may take a few hours to sync all your order data and create your Plan depending on your data size (we are limited in the speed of Shopify's API). Please be patient and periodically check in to see when complete.

We sync it every hour - check on Catalogue units in stock.

Add (even if approx) unit cost to SKUs - that way you will benefit from reporting on Prediko.

We suggest that when your Smart Plan is setup, you regularly refresh (on a monthly basis) to get the most accurate predictions.
