What's the difference between Get All and Get New Shopify Products?

Question

In Vend's Shopify settings, what is the difference between Get All Shopify Products and Get New Shopify Products

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • Shopify Integration

Answer

  • Get All Shopify Products will pull all your products that exist on your Shopify store that don't already exist in Vend. If the product already exists in Vend and the SKU and Handle match, it will link the Shopify product to the existing Vend product. If there is no exact match a new product will get created.
  • Get New Shopify Products will pull any products that haven't previously been pulled from Shopify.

Additional Information

Use these options with caution! we would recommend always taken a back up of your Vend and Shopify product list.

If you use the Get All Shopify Products option and you have existing products in Vend and the system finds a match the integration will pull the product information from Shopify into Vend and overwrite the product information that you currently have in Vend.

If you have never used the Get All Shopify Products and use the Get New Shopify Products instead for the first time. The system will consider all your products to be new products and will pull all your products into Shopify respectively.
