Mapping vs Syncing
Last Update 7 maanden geleden
Difference between Mapping and Syncing, when to use each:
- If the product you want to sync is currently unsync, the mapping function will establish a link between your Destination Store’s (existing) product and the Source Store’s product. The map function replaces the product properties like inventory, title, price, etc., based on the settings in the store. Mapping is only established if the SKU is matched.
- If the product you want to sync is already synced between your Destination Store and Source-A Store, but you want to sync it with another Source’s store, say Source-B. First, the product would need to be unsynced between Destination and Source-A. The next map function will link the destination Store product and the Source-B product, resulting in product variant syncing. Mapping creates a new link with another product of the same or different Source.
- Product mapping is possible after:
- A Destination Store has been connected to the Source Store.
- The product has been made available by the Source Store for sync.
- The product has been synced between the Source and Destination Stores once.
- The product is currently unsynced between the Source and Destination Stores.
- Mapping eliminates redundancy by matching a product with those already synced once between two stores.
- Mapping is used when you already have a similar product unsynced at your store.
- The syncing function creates a new product at the Destination Stores.
- Product syncing is possible once:
- A Destination Store has been connected to the Source Store
- The product has been made available by the Source Store for sync
- Syncing creates redundancy if a product has already been synced once between two stores and you sync it twice.
- Syncing is used when importing a product for the first time, and no similar product is already synced.
