Sync - auto & manual
Sync History

The sync history page logs the periodic syncing of items and sales orders from the respective sales channels into Zoho Inventory. For each timestamp, you can view the the number of items and sales orders that were successfully synced or had failed to sync into Zoho Inventory.

Payments

The payment status of the inbound sales order from Shopify would be displayed as a comment under the sales order. As Shopify supports not only paid orders, but also unpaid, partially paid and cash on delivery options, the payment status under the sales order would be indicated by a comment as Paid, Unpaid, Partially paid or Cash on delivery depending on the case.


Disable integration

You can disable an integration at any point of time. To do so:

Re-authenticating the integration

In case you have de-activated the integration between Zoho Inventory and Shopify from your Shopify store by removing Zoho Inventory as an associated app, you can re-enable this integration using the re-authenticate feature.

To re-authenticate the integration,

reauthenticate option

Reauthenticating your shopify account

Very Important: Make sure that you re-authenticate the existing account by logging into the correct account. If not, you will be warned by an error message and you have to start over from the beginning because the re-authenticate option will only allow you to re-establish an integration with an existing account. This process will not allow you to change the account that is being integrated.
