The map existing products function allows you to sync matching products without making a copy. This is useful if the products that you need to sync are already on both the source and destination stores.

This function allows you to sync products and update their inventories only.

Note: Product attributes will also sync if you have activated the corresponding product attribute sync from the custom sync settings add-on.

Important information before mapping:

  • Corresponding SKUS must match.
  • SKUs should be unique per variant.
  • The variant count must match.

Note: Only the Destination Store can map products. If you are looking to sync products to a store, you have to install Syncio and select to be a Destination Store.

For instructions on installing as the Destination Store, click on this link

Mapping Products in Bulk:

  1. To access the Map Existing Products function, click into Sync Products from the home page. You can start the bulk mapping process by clicking the Bulk Map Products button.
  2. Syncio will search the inventories of both the source and destination stores for products with matching SKUs. The sync will be created if a match is found.
  3. This process typically runs at 1 product per second.

To create a valid mapping:

  • Corresponding SKUS must match.
  • SKUs should be unique per variant.
  • The variant count must match

Mapping Single Products:

Syncio also gives you the option to map products manually one by one via the Individual Product Mapping Function.

  1. To access the Map Existing Products function, click into Sync Products from the home page. Click on the Switch to Individual Product Mapping button to access the single product mapping feature.

    You will then see a page with the Source Store column to your left and your store to the right column, with Select Product drop-downs in both columns 
  2. To map products, you will need to type the product name for the Source Store in the search bar, press Enter and select the product from the drop down menu. Do the same for the Destination Store. 

Pro Tip: You can select the product either from scrolling through list after clicking the drop down menu, or you can use the search bar to enter the product name.

5. Once a selection is made, you’ll be able to check the variants, SKU, and inventory quantity in these products.

If the variants and SKUs match, then you will be able to map the product (see below screenshot).

6. If the product variants and SKUs do not match, you will get a notification saying that the product cannot be mapped (see example below).

Please work with your store administrators to ensure variants and SKUs are matching before mapping.
