Modified on Tue, 19 Sep 2023 at 03:00 PM

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

  1. Ensure that both DropShipper Store and your store installed Stock Sync.
  2. Request Drop shipper installs 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 installed, let them know to provide you with a Public Token (Account > Advance)

Once the above 2 steps are completed, we may move on to the settings on Retailer Store (your store):

The Woocommerce Store (requires the Stock Sync app) connection method only updates the products in a single direction.

Mapping Settings
