Update products in Shopify

Overview

Find out how to upload product updates, such as a new weight, image, or barcode, from Cin7 Omni to mapped Shopify products and variants.  

Configure update products

To upload a product’s updates to Shopify, you must have enabled Update Products in your Shopify integration settings:

  1. Log in to Cin7 Omni.

  2. From the Integrations menu in the navigation, open your Shopify integration.

  3. Open Settings.

  4. Turn on Products and enable Update Products.

  5. Select Save Settings.

Also, for each product with updates to upload, ensure that

  • the product is mapped to a Shopify product,

  • on the product’s page, your Shopify integration is selected under Classifications > Channels,

  • on the product’s page, Display is not set to Turn Off / Inactive, and

  • on the product's page, the Status of each option is not set to Disable.

Update products

Before uploading product updates to Shopify, review what Cin7 Omni product details upload and what Shopify product details they overwrite (see below). Then:

  1. Log in to Cin7 Omni.

  2. From the Integrations menu in the navigation, open your Shopify integration.

  3. On the Product Status tile, select Update Products. You'll see a list of Omni products that are mapped to Shopify and that have been saved since you last updated Shopify products.

    • To only upload changes to a subset of products, use the search box to filter the list. Only updates to products in the filtered list are uploaded.

    • Optionally, if you want to upload changes to products’ images, select Update Images (to update images, you must have selected Enable Image Updates in your Shopify integration settings).

  4. Select Update Recently Modified Products.
