Store to store supported metafields. Learn more about metafields here.

If you are dropshipping from another (Shopify, BigCommerce, WooCommerce, Wix) store to your own Shopify Store, you may follow the steps below:

Ensure that both DropShipper Store and your store installed Stock Sync.

Request Drop shipper to install Stock Sync on their store since they provide the stock info. They don't need to subscribe to any paid plans, they can always be optional into the Free plan.

Once they have been installed, let them know to provide you with Public Token (Account > Advance)

The Shopify store (require the Stock Sync app) connection method only updates the products in a single direction.

Store to Store connection limitation and how to overcome can refer below to know more:

(a) When the source store removes one image from a product, it will not auto remove the image in destination store - It can RESET all images by enabling the clearing all images in the image field
