How You Create Your First Unlocking Product in 60 Seconds

Selling phone unlocking services is an important part of most cellphone shops.  And for good reason, cell phone unlocking generates increased profits and the increased traffic provides opportunities for other sales.

One of the most important aspects of offering unlocking services in your cell shop that that it drives store awareness in your community.  Any unlock provided today can easily turn into a repair or phone sale tomorrow.
With that said here is how you create your first unlocking product within your CellStore account in 60 seconds.  Let’s get started.

  1. Click on the “Settings icon”. Since there is no default product category for unlocking you will need to create product category first.


  2. Click on “Manage Category”.


  3. Under the “Add New Category” field enter the word Unlocking and press the “Add” button to add the new category name


  4. On the left-hand navigation bar, click on the “Inventory” icon


  5. Click on the “Manage Products” icon


  6. Click on the “+ Add Product” button on the top right side of the application


  7. The Add New Product page is displayed
  8. Complete the following product fields

    1. Select “Unlocking” from the Category Name drop down list
    2. Select “In House” from the Manufacturer Name drop down list
    3. Enter the text Standard Unlocking into the Product Name field
    4. Enter the text UNLSTD for the SKU/Bar Code (you can provide any sku you wish to view a guide on creating good SKU’s click here)
    5. Add a checkmark to the  “Require Serial Number” check box
    6. Remove the checkmark from “Count Inventory Numbers”
    7. Press the “Add” button to save the product.


That’s it!  From the point of sale (cash register) or repair module you can now sell a standard unlocking service.  Each unlocking code will cost a different amount, so using the edit icon on the item (the pencil icon on the far right-hand side of the product line) you can adjust the amount charged. Enter the unlock code into the serial number field section on the sales invoice to save it in the customer’s record. And with all invoices you can even email a copy to your customer.
CellStore Software makes setting up your first standard unlocking product easy.   Look for additional “Getting Started Guides” on the CellStore Wiki.  If you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
To your wireless success!
