SyncLogic is a Shopify app that helps you connect and synchronize multiple Shopify stores for your wholesale business. It allows you to manage inventory, product information, and customer data across different stores easily. Here’s a step-by-step guide to setting up your wholesale business with SyncLogic:
- Create separate Shopify stores: Before using SyncLogic, you need to have separate Shopify stores for your retail and wholesale businesses. This ensures that your retail customers and wholesale customers have distinct shopping experiences with different pricing structures and product offerings.
- Install SyncLogic: To get started, log in to your wholesale Shopify store’s admin dashboard. Visit the Shopify App Store and search for SyncLogic. Click “Add app” and follow the prompts to install SyncLogic on your wholesale store.
- Connect your stores: After installing SyncLogic, go to the “Apps” section in your wholesale store’s admin dashboard and click on SyncLogic. In the SyncLogic dashboard, you’ll see the option to connect stores. Enter the URL of your retail Shopify store and click “Connect.” You will be prompted to authorize the connection. Once authorized, your retail and wholesale stores will be connected.
- Configure sync settings: In the SyncLogic dashboard, you can now configure sync settings for products, inventory, and customers. You can choose to sync all products or select specific products for synchronization. For inventory, you can enable real-time syncing or set a custom sync schedule. For customers, you can choose to sync all customers or only those tagged as wholesale customers.
- Set up pricing rules: SyncLogic allows you to set up pricing rules for wholesale customers. In the SyncLogic dashboard, go to the “Pricing Rules” tab and click “Add Pricing Rule.” You can create rules based on a percentage discount, a fixed amount discount, or a fixed price. You can also set different pricing rules for different customer groups by using tags.
- Sync collections and navigation: If you want to sync your retail store’s collections and navigation with your wholesale store, go to the “Settings” tab in the SyncLogic dashboard and enable the “Collections” and “Navigation” sync options.
- Set up customer accounts: For a seamless wholesale shopping experience, you may want to set up customer accounts in your wholesale store. This will allow your wholesale customers to log in, view their custom pricing, and access other features specific to their account. In your wholesale store’s admin dashboard, go to “Settings” > “Customers” and enable the “Accounts are required” option.
- Test the sync process: Before making your wholesale store live, test the sync process to ensure all settings are configured correctly. Make changes to your retail store’s product information, inventory, or customer data and check if these changes are reflected in your wholesale store as expected.
- Promote your wholesale store: After setting up your wholesale business with SyncLogic, start promoting it to potential wholesale customers with InstantBoss.
By following these steps, you can use SyncLogic to manage your wholesale business on Shopify effectively. Remember to monitor your sync settings and make adjustments as needed to ensure a smooth and efficient wholesale experience for your customers.
