Importing inventory information is part of the initial connection process, but inventory information can also be imported to Thrive afterwards. 

  • NOTE: This is a manual process that is only recommended for initial setup. It should ideally NOT be a regular practice.


What this will do

This process will pull inventory information from your integration into Thrive Inventory. 

Common concerns:

  • Importing is not selective. It reads ALL inventory information from your integration and writes it to Thrive Inventory.

  • If there is a product that already exists in both systems and is syncing between the two, it will not be duplicated.

  • Importing can take 5-60 minutes depending on the amount of inventory in your integration

  • Anywhere there is a disagreement of information between the fields we map to on the integration and Thrive, the integration will win.

    • For example, if you have the price of a product at $3 in your integration, but $2.99 in Thrive, by importing it will make both systems have the price of $3.

  • If your integration does not support partial quantities (for example .5 units in stock), this may set your Thrive Inventory quantities to ZERO. As of 12/16/19, Shopify has been known to do this when importing.

  • Importing is NOT recommended as a regular practice. This is recommended for initial setup or in the case that an employee has accidentally entered inventory information into the point of sale/e-commerce system vs in Thrive Inventory (as recommended).

  1. Go to the Locations and Integrations tab in the 'Settings' section of Thrive Inventory.
