Import Options

The "Feed Task Options" is the last step of the feed task creation process when importing products to your Shopify store via the DropSynco app.

In this section you can create product upload filters, price rules, update option rules and schedule your feed task.

Product Filter


Feed Task Options - Product Filter

Product Filter is an optional feature that allows you to filter the products you want to insert or update to your Shopify Store. Any product not matching the filter rules defined will be ignored.

You can combine multiple filters and they are applied in the order of their creation.

You can create a filter for the following fields Title, Description, Vendor, Product Type, Price, Compare Price, and SKU.

Some fields are text fields while others are numeric fields. Based on the type of the field, you can define different rules; for example, you can filter all products with Title (Text Field) containing "Red" or filter products with Price (Numeric Field) greater than 10.

Price Rules


Feed Task Options - Price Rules

Price Rules are optional. That feature allows you to define the price rules to be applied to your products.

Price rules can be applied across all products or to a selection of products thanks to the product filter rules of this section. To reveal the price rules product filters, switch off the control "applied to all products".

You can create one or more price rules and they are applied in the creation order.

In each rule, it's possible to increase or decrease the price by percentage; for example increasing the price by 10%, or by a fixed amount; for example, increasing the price by 10$.

Price rules also give the option of rounding prices; for example, if the product price is $10.88 and needs to be rounded to $10.99, you have to add 99 in the rounding box.
