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.
