Below is a brief overview of how Stock2Shop syncs product updates from Pastel to Shopify, and automatically raises online orders into Pastel as invoices or sales orders.
There are two main elements to this Stock2Shop integration:
Stock2Shop can sync vital product data from your Pastel Partner or Pastel Xpress to your Shopify website. This means that your online customers will see accurate stock levels and pricing.
We can, in fact, sync any of the data in your Pastel product table to your Stock2Shop console. When it comes to sending data to your website, we are limited by the Shopify API to the following fields:
We can accommodate two types of workflows for this integration:
Stock2Shop can sync updates to products that already exist on your ecommerce channel. This is useful if you already have a website that is populated with products. Stock2Shop will ensure that pricing and stock levels are kept up to date in near real time.
Preparing you data for Workflow 1:
|SKU (Item Code)||Description (title)||Online Sync||Sales price||Stock on hand|

Stock2Shop can send your Pastel items to your ecommerce channel where they are created. This is useful if you are launching a new website and want to sync your Pastel data directly onto your website. Stock2Shop can accommodate simple and multi-variant products.
Preparing you data for Workflow 2: You would need to add some User Defined Fields (UDFs), indicated in red on the example spreadsheet below:
Using this workflow, you will be able to sync products from Pastel to your website where they will be configured as multi-variant products where required. For more information on the relationship between products and variants, click here.

In addition to syncing updates from Pastel to Shopify, Stock2Shop also automates the raising of orders from your website back to Pastel as either invoices or sales orders.
