Product detail text editors
Fig. 4

  1. "Product Description" – This is a description of your product. Try to write the best description possible as Jet only chooses a single description to list across all merchants selling the product.
  2. "Bullets" – Jet may choose to list bulleted features you supply. Enter one bullet per line, and add up to 5 lines.
  3. "Legal Disclaimer" – Any legal language required to be displayed with the product.
  4. "Safety Warnings" – If applicable, use to supply any associated warnings for your product.
  5. "CPSIA Cautionary Statements" – Use this field to indicate if a cautionary statement relating to the choking hazards of children's toys and games applies to your product. These cautionary statements are defined in Section 24 of the Federal Hazardous Substances Act and Section 105 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. They must be displayed on the product packaging and in certain online and catalog advertisements. You are responsible for determining if a cautionary statement applies to the product. This can be verified by contacting the product manufacturer or checking the product packaging. Cautionary statements that you select will be displayed on the product detail page. If no cautionary statement applies to the product, select "no warning applicable" or select nothing.

Editing Product Prices

Fig.1 Section 6 shows an area containing pricing information for the current product with the following values:

  • "Last Update" – This is the last date and time Jet received a product update.
  • "Base Price" – The overall price that the merchant SKU is priced at. Note that this is the item price, and generally will not contain in it the shipping charge. This is the large green price at the top right of the section.
  • "Map Type" – Price policy rule that determines allowed item pricing and Jet member savings shown to the consumer. Map Type may be set to one of the following values:
    • "No Restrictions" – No Restrictions on displayed product pricing or Jet member savings on the product. This is the default value for all products
    • "Logged In" – Jet member savings for the product are never advertised and are only visible to logged in Jet members after they specifically request to reveal savings. This value can be used when complying with a manufacturer's Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) policy. The API map_price field must also be used when using this setting as it is needed to display a price for advertising and initial presentation to the consumer.
    • "Not Applied" – Jet member savings never applied to product and product orders never awarded to retailer if Jet item price is below item price sent by retailer. This value can be used when complying with a manufacturer's Unilateral Minimum Retail Price Policy. This policy setting will restrict the ability to win an order for a product if the retailer item price sent is above Jet's item price shown to the consumer.
  • "Map Price" – Minimum Advertised Price (MAP) for the product. This price is used as the display or reference price when Map Type is set to "Logged In".
  • "Tax Code" – Jet's standard code for the tax properties of a given product. Use "Generic Taxable Product" for most products.
  • "MSRP" – The manufacturer's suggested retail price or list price for the product.
  • "Units" – For Price Per Unit calculations, the number of units included in the merchant SKU. The unit of measure must be specified in order to indicate what is being measured by the unit-count.
  • "Unit Type" – This is a label for the value entered into "Units" The price per unit can then be constructed by dividing the selling price by the number of units and appending the text "per unit value." For example, for a six-pack of soda, "Units" would be set to 6, and "Unit Type" would be set to "can". This would calculate the "price per can" for the customer on Jet.
  • "Excl Adj" – Select this option to prevent Jet from automatically applying any fee adjustment rules to the product. Please be aware that this may decrease the number of orders that you win for this listing.
  • "Fulfillment Node Prices" – It is possible to override the base price for each fulfillment node. To add a specific price for a fulfillment node, click the + icon at the top right of the grid.
    Clicking the + icon will create a new row. Double click the Fulfillment node cell, select the desired node, and hit Enter to commit. Next, double click the price cell, enter the desired price and hit enter to commit.
    Please remember that fulfillment nodes must be configured ahead of time, and can be done from the main window.

Editing Product Attributes

The product attributes section contains information about the manufacturer, brand, part number, category and attributes.

Product attributes editor
Fig. 8

  • "Manufacturer" – The manufacturer name
  • "Brand" – The brand name. This is a required field.
  • "Part Number" – The manufacturer part number
  • "Item Type" – Amazon Item Type Keyword. Item Type allows customers to find your products as they browse to the most specific item types.
  • "SKU" – Your internal sku for this product
  • "Category Path" – The category path for where this product is located in your categorization structure. For example, a laptop bag might belong in Electronics/Computers/Laptops/Accessories/Bags within your product catalog
  • "Browse Node" – This is Jet's internal id for one of their categories. This field is not directly editable, and clicking it will open the Category & Attribute Browser. The browser lets you visually browse the available category hierarchy, and select/enter any applicable attributes available for the category.
    The currently selected category name will be displayed above the attribute grid.
  • "Prop 65" – You must tell Jet if your product is subject to Proposition 65 rules and regulations. Proposition 65 requires merchants to provide California consumers with special warnings for products that contain chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm, if those products expose consumers to such materials above certain threshold levels. The default value for this is "false". Please view this website for more information: oehha.ca.gov
  • "Attributes Grid" – The attributes grid displays information about the attributes and values that have been entered. When selecting a category, attribute values may be entered, which will be displayed here. To add or edit attributes, click the edit icon at the top right of the grid, or click the "Browse Node" input box.
    If you wish to delete an attribute, highlight a row in the grid, and hit the delete key on your keyboard.

Editing Product Images

Each product can have a total of 10 images: A main image, a thumbnail image and 8 additional images. Only the main image is required, but it is advised to add as many images as possible.
Note: Each image must be publicly hosted online. At this time, Jet does not allow partners to upload or send images directly to Jet. Additionally, there is no guarantee that Jet will select any of the images you provide as the image displayed to customers on Jet.

Edit product images
Fig. 9

To add an image, click the + icon at the top right of the grid.
Clicking the + icon will create a new row. Double click the "Slot" cell, select the desired slot, and hit Enter to commit. Next, double click the "Url" cell, enter the full address of the hosted image online, and hit enter to commit.
The main image is the only required image that must be included with each product sent to Jet.

If you would like to remove a row from the grid, highlight the row and hit the delete key.


Editing Shipping Attributes

The Shipping Attributes section is the place to go for item and package dimensions, weight, and shipping rules. Here's what you'll find:

  • "Package Height" – Package height in inches used when shipped as a single unit.
  • "Package Width" – Package width in inches used when shipped as a single unit.
  • "Package Length" – Package length in inches when shipped as a single unit.
  • "Item Height" – Height of the fully assembled unit in inches.
  • "Item Width" – Width of the fully assembled unit in inches.
  • "Item Length" – Length of the fully assembled unit in inches.
  • "Shipping Weight" – Weight in pounds when the unit is in its packaging.
  • "Multi-pack Qty" – Number of items with the given Standard Product Code that makes up your product offer.

    Multi-pack quantity can be different than number of units in a package, and it is dependent on the specific product configuration that a given product code (such as UPC) represents. For example, a UPC might represent a 12 pack of soda. This is a single item that happens to have 12 cans inside. In this instance, the multi-pack quantity would be 1.

    If a different UPC represented two 12 packs of soda that must always be sold together as a single unit, the multipack quantity would be 2.

    Take a look at this example of units of shaving cream supplied by Jet:

    Multi-pack quantity example
    Fig. 10 — See More

  • "Ships Alone" – If this unit ships in its own packaging as a single unit, then check this box.
  • "Fulfillment Time" – The time in days it takes to process an order prior to shipping
  • "Country of Origin" – The country the item was originally manufactured in
  • "Shipping Exceptions" – Shipping exceptions are used to override the base shipping rules set within the partner portal on a per product basis. Within the shipping exceptions grid, you will find the following columns:
    • "Fulfillment Node" – Shipping exceptions are configured on a per-fulfillment node basis, meaning the product can have separate shipping rules set for each configured fulfillment node.
    • "Method" – A general shipping method to override. This cannot be used with Service Level.
    • "Level" – The service level to override. If you have configured shipping by level in the Jet partner portal, then you would select the level here instead of using Method
    • "Exception" – The shipping exception type:
      • Exclusive – The product should only be shipped using the shipping method or shipping level specified. There can only be one exclusive shipping method per fulfillment node.
      • Restricted – The product cannot be shipped using the shipping method or shipping level provided.
    • "Charge" – Based on the value of the "Override" column, this amount is:
      • "Additional Charge" – The amount added to the default shipping charge
      • "Override Charge" – The total amount charged for shipping
    • "Override" – Modifies the behavior of "Charge"
      • "Additional Charge" – A charge that is added to the default shipping charge.
      • "Override Charge" – A charge that overrides the default shipping charge.

    Note: For any product that always ships freight, please set up a shipping exception by selecting a freight service method or level.

    For more information on shipping exceptions, please see: Shipping Exceptions

    To add a shipping exception, click the + icon at the top right of the grid.
    Clicking the + icon will create a new row. Double click each of the cells within the row and select or enter the desired value, and hit Enter to commit.

    If you would like to remove a row from the grid, highlight the row and hit the delete key.


Editing Returns Exceptions

Returns exceptions are used to override the default return location specified by the fulfillment node configuration. If a product is shipped from some other location, or you want a product returned somewhere specific, then simply select one of the locations in the list.
Each location is considered to have equal priority, and if multiple return locations are selected, each has an equal change to be selected as the return location.

Editing product returns exceptions
Fig. 11

Return nodes are first configured within your Partner Portal on Jet. There you can set up the address, days to return, service level and any special instructions. Once your return location is configured, you must copy the configuration to Aerodrome using the Return Location Manager found on the Main Window.
See Running Aerodrome for the First Time for more information on setting up return location nodes.


Editing Product Variation & Accessory Groups

Variation groups are a way to represent relationships between products within your catalog. To create a variation group, you must first select a product to act as the primary SKU. Then a list of additional SKU's are selected as and linked to the primary SKU as variations. When displaying any of these products to a customer, Jet may decide to show other products in the variation group in a dropdown list. Each product in the variation group must belong to the same category, and each product must also vary on at least one attribute shared by all members within the group.

Editing product variation groups
Fig. 12

To create or modify a variation group for the current product, click the + icon at the top right of the grid.
Clicking the + icon will open the Variation Group Manager window where you can configure the group.

For more information, please see the Working with Variation Groups page.
