Introduction

If your vendor migrated from one e-commerce platform to another, you'll lose the connection with their store and their catalog, which will prevent you from syncing stock and prices or sending orders to their store.

In this article, we'll explain the recommended flow for this transition to work smoothly.

Disclaimer

We recommend reaching out to our Support team if you're handling a platform migration - for instance, if your vendor is migrating from Woocommerce to Shopify.

Even though the process is similar, the flow described in this article is related to a migration from a manual integration (e.g.: Google Sheets) to a full integration (for example, Shopify). 

❗️It is not recommended to swap out the credentials in the current feed, you should create a new one instead.

Recommended process

❗️If the items in your store share the same SKU as the ones in the new inventory feed, the items should connect automatically without the need to delete and republish the same items.

Ensure you follow these steps:

1. Disable the Google sheet inventory feed:

2. Go to Contacts > Dropship Providers > (choose vendor) > Products tab > create a new inventory feed of type Shopify:

πŸ‘‰ If needed, share this article with your vendors so they know how to enable the permissions needed and how to generate the credentials you will need.

3. [Optional] If you want to start sending orders directly to the vendor's store, go to the dropship provider's Orders tab, switch to Shopify (for example) and add the same credentials previously added in the Products tab:

4. Go back to the Shopify feed and enable "Automatically connect by SKU" in the Publishing tab:
