Download the App
The app is free for everyone with a Boutique Window plan. To get started, download the app from the App Store. Once it’s done downloading, you’ll see your new BW Admin app on your iPhone home screen.
Log in to the Boutique Window iPhone App using the same username and password you use to login to your account online. The first thing you will see is your In Store feed from your Boutique Window.
Start Adding Merchandise
To add new items, tap the Add Merchandise button at the bottom of your screen. Take a photo of the item you want to add or select an existing photo from your camera roll by clicking the icon on the lower left. Then use our built-in photo editor to crop your image, make basic adjustments or add text. Don’t forget our simple tips to take great product photos.
Add Item Details and Additional Photos
Next, you can add additional photos of the item by tapping the Add Photo button and add item details by tapping into any field to edit. Add the item to any of your existing collections. Once you’re finished, tap Publish at the top of the screen.
Publish Your Item
When you tap Publish, you’ll be taken back to your In Store feed. You’ll see your new item at the top with a green up arrow indicating it is being published to your Boutique Window. Once your item is published, the arrow will disappear and shoppers viewing your Boutique Window, your In Store tab on Facebook and your website can now see your new merchandise. Hooray!
Editing or Removing an Item
To edit or remove an existing item, simply tap the item in the feed.
Share to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram
You can share a collage of your merchandise by clicking on the arrow in the upper right or share an individual item by tapping on the desired item and clicking Share. Learn more about sharing from the Boutique Window iPhone app here.
