Add products to the product catalog

Add products to the GoDaddy Payments product catalog that's connected to your GoDaddy smart terminal. Then, use the products to easily build orders and process transactions on the smart terminal.

You can import products from your Websites + Marketing Online Store, add them through the Dashboard in your web browser (individually or in bulk), or add them manually on the smart terminal. We recommend importing or adding them through the web browser — it’ll be a lot quicker, especially if you've got a lot of products. But whichever way you add them, they'll be available anywhere you process in-person sales.


Products in your Websites + Marketing Online Store are maintained separately from the products in your GoDaddy Payments catalog, but you can import your store product list to minimize setup work. If you manage inventory through your online store, selling a catalog item on your smart terminal will also remove it from your online store's inventory.

  1. Add products to your online store.
  2. Go to your Websites + Marketing dashboard. (From your GoDaddy product page, scroll to Websites + Marketing and select Manage next to your site.)
  3. Expand Commerce and select Products.
  4. In the In Person Catalog drop-down, select Export.
  5. Check the box next to each product you want to import, then select Add to In Person Catalog.
  6. Select OK. You’ll receive a confirmation email when the import is complete.

    Note: This procedure does not permanently sync your online store catalog with your GoDaddy Payments catalog. You’ll need to run the import process again if you add products to your online store later.

  7. To view products in your GoDaddy Payments catalog, go to your In Person Overview page and select Catalog. All products that you’ve imported or added to the GoDaddy Payments catalog will appear.
  8. If you don’t see your catalog changes on your smart terminal, refresh the Register app to manually sync them. (Open the Register app, tap the menu on the upper left-hand side (next to Sale), then tap Refresh Register.)

Add products directly through the GoDaddy Payments Dashboard in your web browser, either in a batch with the bulk upload tool or individually.

Note: Need some extra help? Customers in the updated Commerce Home dashboard can select Ask Airo™ and walk through the process to add products to the catalog.

Bulk upload products

Create a .csv file to bulk import multiple products at once.

  1. Sign in to your In Person Overview page (use your GoDaddy username and password).
  2. Select Catalog in the left-nav.
    Catalog highlighted in navigation pane
    Note: If you don’t see this option in your left-nav, follow these steps to add products in the original GoDaddy Payments dashboard.
  3. Select More icon More, and then select Import Products from CSV.
  4. To create a .csv file, select Download under Get a Starter Template. Fill out the fields for each product and save the file. The template includes columns for all product details (like categories and product modifiers and variants), to help organize and customize your products.
    Note: The smart terminal can display up to 1000 products in the on-device catalog. If you have more than 1000 products, make sure to include a UPC value for your products so you can add them to orders with the built-in barcode scanner.
  5. In the Catalog dashboard, select Browse files and select your .csv file. The system will run a quick scan and let you know if anything in the file needs to be adjusted.
  6. When the scan is complete, select Start Import to add the products to your catalog. (Depending on the amount of products you have, this can take a while to complete.)
  7. Optional: Create additional categories to bundle similar products together (for example, Shirts or Dresses). You can add categories to the CSV file in your initial bulk upload, or create them manually at any time.
  8. If you don’t see your catalog changes on your smart terminal, refresh the Register app to manually sync them. (Open the Register app, tap the menu on the upper left-hand side (next to Sale), then tap Refresh Register.)

Add individual products

Manually add or edit individual products within your catalog.

  1. Sign in to your In Person Overview page (use your GoDaddy username and password).
