Lesson 2: What is the Shopify integration and how does it work?
What is the Shopify integration and how does it work?
The Shopify integration enables you to sync your products and orders between Vend and Shopify.
Any time a product sells in-store, the quantity available will update in Shopify, and vice-versa.
Vend has a really useful guide that covers the whole process here: https://support.vendhq.com/hc/en-us/articles/201378560-The-Shopify-Integration-How-does-it-work-and-how-do-I-set-it-up-
The problem with the Vend guide is that it assumes you have everything already set up in Vend and your Shopify website is ready to launch. The reality is that the Vend guide brushes over all of the little details that add up to making your website successful. Following Vend's guide will get you as far as syncing your product catalogue, but it won't tell you how to do this efficiently, in the right process, or even how to manage your Shopify store now that it is integrated.
In this lecture I will cover how the integration works, what you need to know up-front, and show you first-hand how the integration works.
