Once you've set up your Instant Inventory settings, you must create at least one rule defining which jewelry items you want to include in the feed, who will be supplying the items, and your profit margins and admin fees.
A rule consists of:
Suppliers you want to use
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 jewelry item appears in more than one Instant Inventory jewelry rule or is offered by multiple sellers, only one copy of the jewelry item, from one seller, will appear in the jewelry feed. The jewelry item with the lowest price will appear.
