What product information syncs to and from WooCommerce?

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • WooCommerce Integration 

Answer

Once WooCommerce is linked to Vend, Vend becomes a system of record i.e. the products must be managed in Vend.

One-way sync (Vend to WooCommerce):

  • Product name
  • Handle (on the first publish)
  • Description
  • SKU
  • Tag
  • Inventory
  • Retail price

Two-way sync:

  • Inventory (only from WooCommerce to Vend when an order successfully syncs to Vend)
  • ImageWe only send all the images when you first publish the product to WooCommerce or upon initial import into Vend. Any additional images need to be directly managed on WooCommerce.

 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.
