The Product Settings Add-on expands Syncio's inventory syncing functionality. It allows the destination store's synced products to receive product attribute updates like inventory syncs.

This saves an immense amount of time managing synced products across different stores.

Available only on the Shopify integration. Can be activated only by the destination store.

Activating the Add-on

From the Syncio Homepage, click on Settings and the [Manage] button in Plan & Billing.

From there, you can toggle the add-on in your plan and then update it.

Once activated, the Product Settings tab will be accessible. You can then activate any product attribute syncing function as needed by selecting what you need and then clicking on the Save Changes button.

Turning on or off any of the settings on does not retroactively update products; they will update on the next product update (a manual change in the source store), or you can force the product to update by clicking the resync button next to it.

Ongoing Sync Functions

Ongoing sync functions update any synced destination store product whenever a change is made on the source store, allowing synced products to receive the latest product management information without the extra manual work.
