Add Shopify API Delta Full Product Export

Add the Shopify API Delta Full Product Export for new and updated products in Productsup to export your products directly to your Shopify shop system.


The Shopify API Delta Full Product Export lets you centralize and efficiently export products from the Productsup platform to a Shopify shop system. When you perform an export, the Shopify API Delta sends new and updated product data in minutes or seconds rather than hours or days to send the full export. The entire feed file could take over 24 hours for feeds containing over 100,000 products with the previous Shopify API export.


This export channel replaces the previous Shopify API (Full Product Export).

  • Productsup created a parent_sku attribute in Dataflow to group items and sub-items by a shared value with this export. With this enhancement, items and sub-items don't need to match the Shopify SKU value.

  • Don't leave the parent_sku attribute without a connection. Items and sub-items should contain the same parent_sku values. For example, the item long sleeve t-shirt should have the same parent_sku value as its alternative or sub-item product, long sleeve t-shirt small.

  • Different products shouldn't share the same parent_sku value.
