These fields can be managed within the Shopify Configuration under the Product Synchronization Advanced Settings.

Note: Draft and Archived products in Shopify will import to Unleashed when selecting "Import Products from Shopify to Unleashed" in Manage your Data.

Product Synchronization Options:

The Stock on Hand will always be managed by Unleashed regardless of the Master system selected.

Unleashed as Master

  • The Product Details in Unleashed will overwrite the Product Details in Shopify
  • For a single Shopify store: Creating a Product in Unleashed will automatically create a Product Record in Shopify under the same Product Code
  • For multiple Shopify stores: Creating a Product in Unleashed will NOT automatically export the Product to Shopify. The Product will need to be ticked in the Manage your Products page per Shopify store
  • Deleting the Product in Unleashed (given no prior transaction history) will delete the Product in Shopify
  • The Product Pricing exported to Shopify is determined by the Sell Price Tier selected in the Configuration.
  • Please note: Unleashed is only able to export a single Default Product Image to Shopify

Shopify as Master (only available for single store Shopify integration)

  • The Product Details in Shopify will overwrite the Product Details in Unleashed
  • Creating the Product in Shopify will create a Product Record in Unleashed using the Product SKU from Shopify as the Product Code as soon as it's saved in Shopify
  • Deleting the Product in Shopify will delete the Product in Unleashed (given no prior transaction history)
  • The Product Pricing is dictated by Shopify and will populate the Sell Price Tier selected in the Configuration
  • The Primary Product Image will import to Unleashed as the Product's Default Product Image
  • Product Variants require their own unique individual SKUs to create a Product Record in Unleashed.
  • If the setting "Charge tax on this product" is disabled within a SKU in Shopify the product's Default Sales Tax in Unleashed will update to the No Tax 0% (NONE) tax rate. 

Product Synchronization Disabled

  • Changes in Unleashed will not overwrite Shopify (vice-versa)
  • Each system is managed separately
  • Product Records will remain independent. Product updates will need to be made to Unleashed and Shopify
  • Deleting a Product in one system will not delete the product in the other system
