Criteria to Create a New Product in WooCommerce from Clover
The Unique Identifier that ties the two systems together is the product SKU. If you only have product codes, export your product list, and copy them into the sku field.
1. Create Simple Products & Update Price (Send Standard Action)
To restrict specific products from going up to your website just add the Label ‘instoreOnly’ in your Clover POS.
See snapshot example for instoreOnly label.
2. Create Matrix Products & Update Price (Send Matrix Action)
Note: Matrix products need to be built properly in Clover using the POS hardware or the Clover UI.
All SKU’s in Clover must be unique
Criteria to Sync Inventory with Existing Products Run your inventory only Actions to update inventory to WooCommerce after a new product has been created. You will also need to update your inventory time stamp after in order to trigger new inventory updates.
Note two way inventory sync requires orders sync and item stock update based on WooCommerce orders created in Clover.
Action name: Clover adjust item stock for matching orders from WooCommerce then tag orders esyncExported. Please contact us in Support if this Action isn’t visible and we can activate it for you.
3. Sync inventory only Standard Products Action. (Send Standard Inventory Action)
4. Sync inventory only Matrix Products Action. (Send Matrix Inventory Levels Action)
Price adjustments in Clover is a trigger to sync new items. When adding new products, we suggest adding the SKU first, and the price update last. If you update price first, the item may sync and if the SKU is missing, the item will fail. If the item failed, because the SKU was missing, now you’ll need to update the price for a new trigger. Change price by a penny, hit save, and change back, hit save again.
Note: The time stamp for creating products in Clover is different from the time stamp to update inventory only in Clover. So, running your Send Products Action after a sale in your POS will not update inventory. You will need to RUN your Update Inventory Levels Action in this case.
