How to edit products linked to Shopify

Question

 What is the best approach for editing products that are linked to Shopify?

Setup

  • Vend for Mac or PC
  • The Shopify integration

Answer

When Vend and Shopify are connected, Vend is considered the system of record. This means all product updates should flow from Vend to Shopify in order to see them display in both Vend and Shopify and maintain a proper product sync. 

The following areas should be edited in Vend in order to maintain a synced product: 

  • Product name
  • Handle
  • Description
  • SKU 
  • Retail price
  • Inventory
  • Product tag
  • Product type
  • Brand or Supplier
  • Active/Inactive state (Maps to availability on Shopify

What can be edited directly on Shopify without impacting the product sync: 

  • Images and Image SEO
  • Supply price
  • Collections
  • Shipping Weight
  • Compare at Price
