What product information syncs with Shopify?

Whether you are pushing new Vend products to Shopify, pulling Shopify products into Vend, or are updating products that are already linked, only certain parts of a product sync between platforms.

  Important

  • Once your Vend and Shopify accounts are connected, Vend becomes the system of record.
  • You should manage your product catalogue, pricing and inventory information in Vend to ensure everything stays accurate and up-to-date.
  • Shopify feeds important information back to Vend such as online sales, new customer or existing customer information associated with a sale, and inventory from a sale to keep stock levels in sync.
