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.
Note the Unique Identifier to sync and create products in Shopify is the Product Name or title. If you change the product name, then another duplicate product will be created.
The Shopify SKU is also needed to match items to your POS. So, in this case the SKU field from Clover needs to match the Shopify SKU field. So, both the product name and the Shopify SKU need to match your POS.
