Shopify product import & export

Starting from 2004, this e-commerce website builder now hosts more than 700,000 online stores. It is probably one of the easiest ways to start a new online store. No programming knowledge is needed, an easy-to-use interface, and a wide variety of tools & extensions for doing online sales.

There are several ways to import or export products from Shopify: use built-in features or use 3rd party solutions. There are multiple providers in the market that specialize in feed management, and Wise2Sync is one of them, which will give you control and flexibility.

Shopify Product Import

Here’s a simplified scheme of how product upload and update works.

  1. Data Collection. Wise2Sync has access to your suppliers’ feeds and collects product data (in XML, API, CSV, JSON or other formats).
  2. Data Processing. Wise2Sync downloads and processes product data using features such as data mapping, product filtering, price markups, and more. This is where your supplier’s product catalog is built and becomes ready to be pushed to your e-commerce store.
  3. Create & Update. The Shopify connector app uploads and updates products on your store.

After the initial product creation, subsequent syncs will only update product stock, price, compare-at price, and cost per item. Therefore, any modifications or customizations to product descriptions, texts, etc., will not be overwritten.

Wise2Sync supports both simple products and variations as long as your data source (supplier) provides this information.

Shopify Product Export

Are you looking to export and sync your products with partners, price comparison websites, or marketplaces? This is an excellent way to create additional sales channels or share your product catalog with partners, essentially turning you into a supplier for preferred marketplaces. Wise2Sync serves as a powerful tool to automate your product catalog management.
