Live Stream Cloning

Brooke Wolfrom Brooke Wolfrom

Live sellers now have the ability to clone items from any of their previous streams! If you had items that did not sell in a stream, you can now carry them over to an upcoming show without having to add them again

Disclaimer: The cloning feature is not intended to clone items from the same stream into that stream. 

The Chrome browser is recommended for using this feature on Web.

Important things to keep in mind:

  • You must first create a new stream in the Whatnot app so you have a destination to clone your items to.
  • Cloning your items from previous streams can only be done in your profile on web or through our iOS app at this time.

To use Live Stream Cloning on Web:

  1. Schedule a new live stream using the Whatnot app.
  2. Navigate to your profile on the web.
  3. Click on Live Sales.
  4. From the drop down, select the stream from which you wish to clone items.
  5. Once selected, click the button "Clone Items from this Stream" in the upper right corner.

You will be taken to a brand new page showing all of your items listed from this previous stream.

From the dropdown menu "Which live should these products be cloned to?" select the upcoming stream you just created. This will be the destination for your cloned products.

Next, you will click the checkbox for "Select All".

Once you have clicked Select All, click the button "Clone (X items)" button at the top of the page.

Your cloned items will now be available for your new upcoming stream!

To use Live Stream Cloning on iOS:

  1. Schedule a new live stream using the Whatnot app.
  2. Navigate to your seller profile by clicking your profile icon on the bottom right of the screen, and tap on the show you wish to clone items to
  3. Click the + sign to add a product
  4. Select the square + icon in the top right corner and select the stream you wish to clone items from
  5. Select the items you wish to clone and choose "clone" in the top right corner.

If you wish to change any details such as description or price, you will need to go into your upcoming stream and make these changes manually by editing the listing.

This tool is very powerful as you can select any unsold items from any of your previous live streams and clone them to a single live stream! If you had several items from multiple streams you want to clone to a new stream, you can repeat the above steps for each of your previous shows.
