Once you've set up your Instant Inventory settings, you must create at least one rule defining which diamonds you want to include in the feed, who will be supplying the items, and your profit margins and admin fees.

A rule consists of:

  1. Diamond parameters

  2. Suppliers you want to use

  3. Price markups you want to display on your website

  • You can edit or add new rules anytime. Everything gets updated automatically within a few minutes so you do not need to send a new script to your developer a new script each time you make changes to a rule or the widget design.

  • If a diamond appears in more than one Instant Inventory diamond rule or is offered by multiple sellers, only one copy of the diamond, from one seller, will appear in the diamond feed. The diamond with the lowest price will appear.

  1. Diamond Parameters

    1. Rules for white and fancy colored diamonds:

      1. All rules filter into one feed.

      2. At this time, for the Instant Inventory widget, we do not offer the option to separate the information based on a particular feed (White or Fancy Color).

      3. If you are using our diamond API, you can set the search type in your customized search widget to White D-M or Fancy Color to force the selection of only white or fancy colored diamonds.

    2. Note:

      1. Mandatory fields for diamonds: Shape, size, color, clarity, finish, grading report, and prices.

      2. Selecting non-mandatory fields reduces the number of diamonds or jewelry in your instant inventory feed.

  2. Suppliers

    1. All Suppliers table shows all the available suppliers.

    2. Selected Suppliers are suppliers you have included in this rule

    3. Filter and select specific suppliers. Clicking Add All moves all suppliers to the Selected Suppliers all of the suppliers who approved listing permissions. This increases the number of diamonds in your instant inventory feed.

    4. Click Request to submit a listing permission request to a particular supplier. Once the supplier approves your request, his name automatically moves to the selected Suppliers' table.

    5. Click + button to add a single supplier to your Selected Suppliers table

    6. Delete All removes all suppliers from the Selected Suppliers table.

  3. Price Markups

    1. Click on Add Markup to begin marking up your prices.

    2. Click Save & Finish.

  4. Name and save your rule:

    1. Give your rule a name.

    2. Describe the diamond parameters, suppliers, and markups that you chose in this rule.

    1. Add new Rule: Create multiple rules within one feed to select specific inventory for certain suppliers or apply different markups, depending on supplier or geographical location.
