Shopify Integration - Inventory Sync

Shopify is an eCommerce platform that enables you to create an online store where you can sell your products. In this article, you will learn about the configurations needed to keep inventory between MyTime and your Shopify store in real-time sync without the need for manual intervention.  

Things to know:

  1. You must have an active Shopify plan. Learn more about Shopify's plans here
  2. The SKU number serves as the sole identifier linking Shopify and MyTime products. Neither the product name, SKU name, nor any other information about the product establishes a connection between the items.
  3. Once the Shopify configuration is completed, here's how the inventory sync works:
    • When a product is purchased in MyTime's POS, the quantity will be updated in MyTime and Shopify
    • When a product is purchased from the Shopify online store, the quantity will be updated in MyTime and Shopify
    • When you manually alter a product's inventory on MyTime, the quantity will be updated in MyTime and Shopify
