Hi. How can we help?

What product information syncs with Shopify?

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


  • Once your Retail POS and Shopify accounts are connected, Retail POS becomes the system of record.
  • You should manage your product catalogue, pricing and inventory information in Retail POS to ensure everything stays accurate and up-to-date.
  • Shopify feeds important information back to Retail POS 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.
  • Please click the following link for more on how to use the Shopify integration!
