Q. My Shopify App creates in Shopify but nothing else happens.

Q. Why are some of my Matrix products creating and some are not?

A. Shopify keys in on the product name. Your Matrix product names are very important in creating your Matrix attributes or children products. Avoid special characters in your product names (Example: , !@#$%^&*(). {}|[]:"’’;,./?>,) and only use hypens, etc. Example of good product names are; Timbers Army T-Shirt, Timbers Army Adidas Shirt, etc. Use dashes (hypens) only and do not use special characters.

Also, avoid special characters in your Attribute Names. Example of a good attribute name; Sm Blue, 3in Blue, Black-Red, etc. To re-iterate, only use hyphens (dashes) in your attribute names and product names.

Q. Can I send inventory to Shopify with decimals for grocery/weighted items, say .5 lbs?

Q. I create a product and after added an image in my POS but Shopify didn’t update.

A. The image can only be created on your first push or the creation of the product.

Q. I only got one Matrix image for Shopify.
