Syncio is divided into two companion apps, Parent and Child apps.
The Parent Store app is connected to the Shopify store that contains the master product listings and controls the master inventory numbers. Typically product creation and inventory management should be handled on this store. It also has the ability to transmit stock and product updates to a connected child store.
The Child Store app is connected to any Shopify stores intended to receive product updates and stock information from a source store.

Select WooCommerce in the drop down menu and type in the URL of your WooCommerce store. Clicking on Register Syncio will redirect you to your store to verify the installation.
*Important please ensure that you type in your WooCommerce home page address.

the https://www. part is not needed.
4. Connecting to other webstores (optional).
Each web-store using Syncio is assigned a unique Syncio Key. These keys are used to connect stores to allow products to be synced. You can also find your key on the Syncio homepage when you login.
Alternatively it is possible to use Syncio to send an automated invitation to a Shopify or a WooCommerce store using our Email invitation feature.
Once completed you will then be redirected to your Syncio Dashboard.
