How to download products from Magento into Cin7.
Currently in Beta. If you only have Simple products it will work correctly, however Configurable or other product types may not download as expected at this stage. If products already exist in Cin7 and Magento you can match existing products at the second step of the download wizard.

Overview


Products can be downloaded from Magento and imported into Cin7. Any products that don't already exist in Cin7 will be imported, and all products will be matched by pairing their Cin7 code with the Magento SKU field.

If there are some products that you would not like to import into Cin7, these can be manually removed during the download process using a spreadsheet.
