Overview of the Rapid Counterpoint to Shopify Connector

The Rapid Counterpoint to Shopify Connector serves as a seamless bridge between your Counterpoint system and your Shopify store. It enables you to sync product information, inventory levels, and orders in real-time, keeping your business operations streamlined and efficient.

When you open the items screen in Counterpoint after installing the connector, you will notice a Shopify items button at the bottom of the items window. Clicking this button will open the Shopify items window, displaying the Shopify item record for the item you are viewing.

In the following sections, we will delve deeper into the various aspects of using the Rapid Counterpoint to Shopify Connector.

Syncing Items from Counterpoint to Shopify

One of the core functionalities of the Rapid Counterpoint to Shopify Connector is syncing items from your Counterpoint system to your Shopify store. By syncing items, you ensure that the product information displayed on your Shopify website is accurate and up to date. Let's explore the steps involved in this process:

4.1 Counterpoint Item Number

The Counterpoint item number serves as the product SKU in Shopify. When syncing an item, the Counterpoint item number is sent to Shopify as the product SKU.

4.2 Product Title

The product title is a configurable field that is synced from Counterpoint to Shopify. You can choose to send the item description, the item long description, or any additional descriptions as the product title. There is also a configuration setting that allows you to control the product title directly in the Shopify backend, preventing Counterpoint from overwriting it.

4.3 Counterpoint Item Category and Subcategory

The Counterpoint item category and subcategory fields are not synced to Shopify. They are solely for display and filtering purposes within the Shopify items window.

4.4 Shopify ID

The Shopify ID is the unique identifier assigned to a product in the Shopify backend. After syncing a product, the Shopify ID is retrieved and displayed in the Shopify items window. Any changes made to the product in Counterpoint will trigger a resync and update the Shopify ID accordingly.

4.5 URL

The URL field displays the customer-facing URL of the product on your Shopify website. It is sent from Shopify to the connector and displayed for reference. However, it cannot be edited within the connector.

4.6 Shopify Status

The Shopify status, also known as the Shopify sync status, indicates the current sync status of a product. It can have one of four values: 0, 1, 2, or 9. A value of 0 means the product has already successfully synced to Shopify. A value of 1 indicates that the item has been edited, triggering a resync during the next connector run. A value of 2 means the item is actively being sync...
