This article explains how to connect and upload your Shopify products to the Postal platform once you integrate your Shopify store with Postal.
Note: Make sure your Shopify shop is integrated with Postal before moving forward.
Step 1 - Sync your products in Postal
In the Vendor Portal, under the tab “Profile” scroll down to see “Integrations.” You will find the button to sync your shop to Postal. Press “Sync Now.”
Step 2 - Choose and edit products
Once your shop is synced, you will see a new tab on the top called “Products.” In this tab, you will see all of your products from your Shopify shop as drafts. You will have to click through the products one at a time to send them for approval.
Click the product you would like to be on Postal and click “Edit Draft.” Make any necessary changes you see fit. Save your changes and then scroll down to edit the variant.
Click on the variant, and then you will see the button “Edit Variant” to be able to make changes. Ensure that there is a name for the variant and the SKU. This can be the same as the product name.
Once you have made all the necessary changes, click “Actions” on the top right, and click “Request Public Listing.”
Step 3 - Email Postal for Approval
After you have requested a public listing, email us @[email protected] for final approval. If you have a shipping cost, please include that in the email and we will be sure to add it.
Step 4 - Done!
You can view your approved products by filtering by 'Active'.
