How does Vend send product updates to Shopify?


  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Shopify Integration 


As Vend is the system of record in the Shopify integration with Vend, if you wish to make changes to your products, this will need to be completed in Vend. Any changes/updates to products in Vend will force them to update in Shopify also.

An example of this is if you have set up formatted descriptions in Shopify for Product A but there are no descriptions in Vend. If you make any changes to Product A within Vend, like changing the price or name, it will push the updates to Shopify including the empty description which will overwrite the formatted description.

If you wish to make edits to your products in Shopify, these are the five things that can be edited in Shopify without breaking the link with Vend: 

  • Collections
  • UPC/Barcode
  • Shipping Weight
  • Images
  • Compare at Price
