Sync Inventory Updates and Create Products from Clover POS in Shopify by Kosmos eSync

Now that you have connected Clover to Shopify, below you’ll find the criteria to create new products and update existing products for inventory and price.

After you have configured your Actions, only add one Action into each Task. There are instances when you can add two Actions or more to a Task, when instructed for orders. In this current release, if the first Action has no data to process the second and third Actions in the same Task will be ignored.

Note the Unique Identifier to sync products with Shopify is the product name or title. If you change the product name a duplicate product may get created in Shopify the next time your Task runs.

To sync products and inventory successfully the product name and SKU from Clover must match any existing items in your Shopify account.
