# Assigning Catalogs

Assigning a product catalog to a Poynt Register can be done through the GoDaddy Poynt Portal (opens new window). Usually this involves creating a catalog, either through a csv file upload or manually entry, and assigning it to a terminal registered with your business.

NOTE

Please remember that this action can only be performed from a reseller or business profile.

  2. PoyntOS on a Poynt Terminal or an Android device/emulator
  3. Activating Poynt Terminal through the 'SetUp Wizard'
