Posting and revising products on Shopify

Modified on Wed, 20 May 2020 at 05:24 PM

The Shopify integration process posts new and revises existing products on Shopify, together. 

To run the integration:



Run Shopify integration


1. Go to Products and select products to post to Shopify

2. Click Shopify -> "Run Integration"


3. "Run Shopify Integration" pop-up

  • Shopify account - select the account to run the integration
  • Selected Products (default) or ALL Products - choose whether the integration to run only for the products selected manually, or for all products
  • Re-send (overwrite) existing products - if checked, Valigara submits all data to Shopify (f.i. product attributes, images, variations) 
  • Fields to update 
    • All fields (default) all product fields are sent to Shopify
    • Selected fields- opens a drop-down with Shopify fields. Select specific fields (like Title, Images, Description) to update in existing listings.



Revise Selected fields


When revising existing products on Shopify, the integration allows to specify whether to submit all product data to Shopify, or only specific fields. 

  • Re-send (overwrite) existing products - sends all product data to Shopify
  • Selected fields - allows pushing only the specific product fields to Shopify, while keeping other fields untouched


Example

You added new images to your products, and you want to update only the images in the relevant Shopify products. 

In this case: 

  • in Selected fields leave only Images 
  • click Yes to run integration
  • the batch is generated, submitting only images to Shopify

  • When integration runs, Valigara uses "Delete Non-Valigara Products" setting to identify what action to use for listings on Shopify created not through Valigara.
  • Submitting only changed data for existing products on Shopify can make the update process much faster.
