We’ve established your connection, now let’s talk about what happens during the testing phase.

Product Synchronization

We will start by syncing your product catalogue to our database. This ensures the uniqueness of your SKUs and confirms that your Shopify store is ready to communicate with TrueCommerce. Refer to our article on SKU Management.

Order Testing

Once the product sync has completed without errors, TrueCommerce will request a test order. For more information, see Placing a Test Order in Shopify's Help Center.

Your TrueCommerce representative will confirm your data has been successfully transmitted through our network. Once an order is received in your TrueCommerce system, we will work closely with you to meet the needs of your data.

Shipment Testing

When you are satisfied with the order flow we will begin test shipments. Fulfillments can then be sent back to your Shopify store. We will confirm proper data flow by ensuring that your order has updated to a fulfilled status.

Inventory Testing

After successful fulfillment status updates, we will initiate the inventory test. Inventory files require SKUs, quantities, and the relevant fulfillment location code you have created in locations. The location code is the name of your location as it appears in Shopify.

In the final test, SKUs and quantities will be transmitted via our Data Hub to your Shopify store to update inventory quantities.
