How to Configure Your Store Connection Settings

Before you begin, you must have a Brand created and if you are importing products an eCommerce store must be integrated. 

Use the following guide to learn how to set up your product connection settings. Within Connection Settings, you have the option to enable the syncing of products, inventory, costs, and more. This eliminates the need to frequently update your products manually in GRIN.

It is important to review your sync settings and enable the options that are critical for the running of your programs. For example, if you are running a campaign where imported product is set up as a compensation method it is important to have product inventory in sync to prevent influencers from choosing products that are no longer available. 

In this guide, you will learn:

Depending on the type of program you would like to run within GRIN you will need to adjust your connection settings by toggling Enabled or Disabled when setting up product as compensation. These settings will enable your products to be synced with your eCommerce store from the amount of inventory to updating product and variant cost. 

Below is the list of Product Settings available and the description behind each setting: 

Keep products in Sync?

Enable this option to keep product attributes and product variants up to date with your store. If imported products are out of sync this could lead to errors when attempting to create orders from GRIN.

Keep product inventory in sync?

When enabled, collections will automatically be created and attached to imported products. Leave this option off in order to import products without a collection association. Once imported with a collection, influencers will have to click into a collection group to view individual products.

If the option for "Automatically import new products?" is enabled, then you will have the option to import based on specific collections.
