Revel Shopify - Creating New Products in Shopify from Revel

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

Test with a single Action first

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 or Barcode from Revel needs to match the Shopify SKU field. So, both the product name and the Shopify SKU need to match your POS.

Criteria to Create a New Product & Sync Existing Products By default with Shopify and new locations feature all new products are created with inventory = 0. See inventory Only Actions on how to update inventory from the POS.
