The Product Sync Add-on expands Syncio’s inventory syncing functionality. It allows the destination store's synced products to receive product attribute updates like the inventory syncs.
This saves an immense amount of time managing synced products across different stores.
Activating the Add-on - See Video Guide
From the Syncio Homepage click into the Upgrade tile, and then click on the Choose Plan button. The option to choose the Custom Product Sync Add-on will be on the second step.
Once activated the Custom Sync Settings tile will be accessible. You can then activate any product attribute syncing function as needed by selecting what you need and then clicking on the Update Settings button.
