This article explains how admins can configure Product Catalog.
The Product Catalog feature empowers companies to create and maintain multiple Product listings and assign each product listing with one or more prices through Price Books. The need to associate a product to multiple prices arises when the price of the product changes based on the buyer type or the buying quantity or the buying geography etc.
Note: The Product Catalog feature is only available to Admins.
For more information on Product and Price Books, refer to the Product Catalog Overview article available in the Additional Resources section.
A product can be an item or any kind of service that a company sells to its customers. Companies should add the product information along with the price per unit to leverage it for opportunities in the Renewal Center.
As an admin, you can add, edit or delete products from Product Catalog.

A price book helps to add the price per unit for a particular product. It also helps to identify the list of products and the different prices associated with them.
You can add, edit or delete price books from the Product Catalog.

- Price Book Name: Name for the Price Book..
- Price Book Description: A description explaining more about the Price Book.
- Check the Active checkbox to set its status as Active and use the price book. The checkbox is unchecked by default.
Note: A Product Catalog can have only one Standard Price Book. Hence, the Standard checkbox is unavailable.

Impact of Renewal Center Sync Options
Admins have two sync options available when they are configuring Renewal Center, Sync with Gainisght and Sync with Salesforce. Each sync option has an impact on the Product Catalog.
- Sync with Gainsight - If sync in Renewal Center is set to Gainsight (default), then Products and Price Books are editable. This means that you can create, edit or delete Products and Price Books in Product Catalog.
- Sync with Salesforce - If sync in Renewal Center is set to Salesforce, then Products and Price Books are not editable. This means that Products and Price Books data will be fetched from Salesforce (via Connectors) and a Call-to-Action (CTA) Import From Salesforce will be available.
Note: Product Catalog is a standalone feature. This scenario is applicable only to tenants who are using both Product Catalog and Renewal Center.
