Which product information syncs to WooCommerce?


Latest update: - Sumeet Singh

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • WooCommerce Integration 

Answer

Once WooCommerce is linked to Vend, Vend becomes the master inventory platform i.e. the products must be managed in Vend.

The product information which syncs to WooCommerce.

One-way sync (Vend to WooCommerce):

  • Product name
  • Handle (on the first publish)
  • Description
  • SKU
  • Tag
  • Product type = category (Vend will only post a single category)
  • Image
  • Inventory
  • Retail price

Two-way sync:

  • Inventory (from WooCommerce to Vend when an order successfully syncs to Vend)
  • Image - When importing the products from WooCommerce to Vend.

 The product information which doesn't sync to WooCommerce

  • Brand
  • Supplier
  • Supply price

Additional Information

  • Handle - Editing a handle in Vend will not update the slug on WooCommerce once the product is published.
  • SKU - changing the SKU in Vend will update on WooCommerce after the product is published.
  • Product type/category - Any additional categories can be added directly on WooCommerce.
  • Image SEO - Vend doesn't have the SEO feature so this should be directly updated on WooCommerce.
