Stock level updates
Indicates whether stock levels should be sent to Shopify or not. This default setting value is YES. You can change this to NO if you do not want stock levels in Stock&Buy to sync to your Shopify store.
Stock levels are synced one way only from Stock&Buy to Shopify. Stock level updates in Shopify are not synced with Stock&Buy.
Indicates how newly created products in Stock&Buy will be treated. These settings also indicate which product properties and attributes will be synced with Stock&Buy.
Automatic price sync
Indicates whether your product price changes in Stock&Buy will sync with Shopify or not.
Shopify Apps which automatically set product prices will interfere with Stock&Buy if this setting is ON.
Turning this setting ON will give you the option to chose which pricing list this store will be linked to. Stock&Buy currently supports two price lists, retail and wholesale.
Once all the settings above are reviewed and correctly set, you can either save the settings and close the settings dialog or click on Import products to import all your products and link them with Stock&Buy.
To get the best out of Stock&Buy, you will need to set up your products initial cost price promptly. The initial cost price affects your Moving Average Cost (MAC). Once transactions are made on your store with the incorrect initial cost price, all your reporting for profit margin will be affected too.
