Products are synced from CCV Shop to the target application. Within this sync, different types of products are supported. APIcenter gathers the data from CCV shop, then it is run through APIcenter to have the correct settings, values, and formats before it is sent to the target application. Products are created or updated based on the SKU.
You can differentiate within APIcenter the behavior between creating and updating products. For example, when APIcenter creates a product and sends in the long description from CCV shop, but if you enrich the data after this in the target application, you don't want to have it overwritten with an update. For this, you can set a checkbox to update the product info.
Supported product types: Simple/Variant. Always check if the target system can handle these product types.
- Attributes & Features settings
This is where you create a mapping table for attributes & features. specify the attribute/features for both the source and target application.
- Update products
Do you only want to add new products or also make adjustments on products? You can set this up here.
Besides the generic and custom added fields from CCV shop, Item Attributes from CCV shop are also supported. These need to be manually mapped in APIcenter.
Attributes are used for creating configurable products, like size/color/options. Features are used as extra information fields, think about the country of origin, type, delivery time, etc.
Categories can be created or updated from CCV shop to the target application if it is supported by the target application.
Images are supported from CCV shop to the target application. Please be aware that CCV shop only supports 1 image.
Per default APIcenter supplies a mapping that makes sure you can send product data towards the target application. You can also make adjustments to this yourself.
Default fields that are mapped are for example:
- Long Description
- Short Description
- Price excl. tax or incl. tax
