This article will show how to upload (export) parts to the platform with their descriptions
You will first need to set-up the connection to the platform, see this article on how to do this:
Orion is considered the master - stock information can be sent to Shopify but will NOT be received.
There are two options to upload parts, individually & Bulk:
TABLE OF CONTENTS
- Single part export
- The Ecommerce "Products" window:
Single part export
In the Parts module, click on Stock Enquiry and edit the part being uploaded
Once the parts department is linked a new tab called "Ecommerce" (1) will be available in the "Maintain Parts Stock" window
Enter the information as required and press OK
|The tab to show and change the information sent to Shopify
|If not ticked this part will NOT be sent to Shopify
|This is the Original price if having a Sale.
i.e. Originally $700.00 - now $619.96
|This is the "Title/Product" as shown in Shopify
If nothing entered then the Part Description will be used
|Used for Shipping:
Orion has either Kg or Grams which is sent to Shopify
NB: Shopify also has lb and oz available as well
|Entered in Shopify as a Variant
|Entered in Shopify as a Variant
|More variants can be entered in Shopify manually
|Used for searching/grouping so items can be found easier
|Note to be displayed in Shopify store as Description
The Ecommerce "Products" window:
This window is used to complete many bulk processes
1 Match Products
In order for this to work properly the Inventory SKU in Shopify must match the part number in Orion
This process MATCHES the two systems - it does not send any data to Shopify.
If you wish to send data to Shopify, then open the product, change any of the information being updated and press OK.
This is the full list which may be being sent to Shopify, but changes depending on the set-up, see Setup - stock configuration for more information.
2 Bulk Activate Orion Products
This will mark all parts as Active - see #2 in "Single Part Export" above
This does NOT export the parts, you will either need to do this individually (above), or in bulk (below)
Double click to Tag individually (1) or Tag All to select them all (2), then exit
3 Bulk Deactivate Orion Products
Deactivate - the opposite of activate....
This does not remove any stock items from Shopify
A list of active stock items will be shown,
Double click on an item to untick, (1) or use the "Untag all" button (2) to de select them all
4 Activate / deactivate individual Orion Products
This does NOT export the parts, you will either need to do this individually (above), or in bulk (below) It also does NOT remove any stock items from Shopify
Didnt we just do this above?... Well yes and no,
This this list will show all parts - active or not - where you can Tick (activate) and untick ((deactivate) individually
Double click on the part as required
5 Export Stock
This will bulk update any stock items that have information that has changed.
Can be used in conjunction with #1 above.
