Which product information syncs to and from WooCommerce?


Latest update: - Sumeet Singh

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • WooCommerce Integration 

Answer

Once WooCommerce is linked to Vend, Vend becomes the master 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
  • 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
  • Product type
  • 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 if the product is published.
  • Product type/category - Any category/sub-categories should be managed directly on WooCommerce.
  • Image SEO - Vend doesn't have the SEO feature so this should be directly managed on WooCommerce.
