When setup correctly, this app can keep your inventory counts in perfect sync between a Square location and a Shopify store. For example, if you sell 2 units of SKU-A0001 in Shopify, 2 units will automatically be deducted from that same SKU-A0001 in Square, and vice versa.
Why does this app exist?
We've found that merchants who want to use Square as their POS, but Shopify for their website, face an impossible task of keeping their inventory counts in sync. And for small small merchants, both platforms are drawing from the same inventory bank.
How does this app work?
Once you've approved the monthly fee, this app will start listening to both Square and Shopify for any events that affect your inventory. These include: (a) orders, (b) refunds, and (c) manual adjustments. Each time a change is detected on one platform, it is replicated on the other.
What does the free version do?
While the free version will not automatically keep your inventory, it does allow you to see any discrepancies between square and shopify and fix them with a few clicks of a button.
What does this app NOT do?
This app is not meant to import new product listings between Shopify and Square, nor is it designed to keep your product descriptions the same, this you will still need to do manually. This app is about inventory counts specifically, for products that are already in both platforms.
What's required from me?
You must have the 'Inventory Tracked by Shopify' setting enabled for all products/variants that you wish to have sync.
All of your products must already exist in both Shopify and Square.
All of your product variants must have a SKU and importantly a unique SKU assigned to them in both Shopify and Square.
How exactly do I install/setup this app?
Step 1 : Install the App
Step 2 : Review your Shopify Inventory data
Step 3: Authenticate with Square
Step 4: Reconcile Your Stock Manually
Step 5: Enabled Automatic Syncing
Step 6: Sit Back And Relax
If no products show up from Shopify, remember that all of your products need to set to “Shopify Tracks This Products Inventory” and have a UNIQUE SKU assigned to it.
If no products show up from Square? Ask yourself, do I even any products in your square account? Remember this app does not import product details, it only works for products that already exist in both platforms.
