Getting Started with Syncio

What is Syncio?

Are you removing, adding, and counting inventory manually? We understand the unique challenges when operating multiple stores or a multi brand marketplace in Shopify. We created Syncio to allow merchants to manage multiple stores and share inventory across them in real-time, so they can focus on their business, not their inventory. 

Whether you are a well-established brand or a small business, Syncio makes managing inventory easier for you. Syncio is a two-way inventory sync, which means that updates from the source store and the destination store update in real time. With Syncio you can sync product and inventory changes across stores in just a few seconds. 

The first step to using Syncio is to select which type of store your store should be setup as: a Source Store or Destination Store.
