Once we have created the account and logged in at Bukisync (If you don’t have an account yet, you can create one here totally free), it’s time to create our new sync.
We will click on “create your first sync” to start.
If we haven’t yet downloaded Bukisync’s app to our computer, it’s time to do it now.
After installing the app, we have to sign in with our email and password. Then we can return to Bukisync’s page where our “client” will appear but, it’s nothing more than our computer with the Bukisync application installed.
We have to select the .xml connector
It will show the following fields to fill in. We have already completed them in the picture for you to have a reference on how is done. We explain below the meaning of each field.
- Name of root element from the element list
- Name of element used for articles
- Decimal separator: In the case of XML files, it wouldn’t be necessary. Just for the CSVs. We can select the option “other” to let us continue.
- File location: We choose “remote” if we copied the file from some website or “local” if we have it downloaded on our computer.
After these steps, the time where we have to pair up the fields has come.
What does this mean? Our .xml has a series of fields, and we have to pair them up with Bukisync fields. It’s very simple. Depending on what we want to sync, we’ll have to choose one or the other.
We recommend you to at least pair up the following fields:
- Product description
In the images, we show you some examples of how it would look.
In the following step, we have to tell our online shop’s access data to the application. At the moment, we only have Prestashop support but, our team of developers is working so that you can also have access to your WooCommerce store soon.
The fields to fill in this occasion are simple:
- Shop (In the description and, shop fields we can write the same name)
All right, after the access data, it comes a very important moment to sync our physical and online store. Even when at first it may seem a bit complex, it’s easy. If you have any doubt, contact us!
At this point, we have to create the rules for Bukisync to sync our store. In the following example, we are going to increase the VAT by 10% on our products whose price is equal to or greater than 100€, without having to spend a lot of time and best of all, without any error!
- The first thing is to give a name to the rule. On this occasion, we have called it “VAT rise”.
- Next, the rule we have created in the example would say: If the “price” is higher or equal to (≥) “100”.
- Then, “modify the price field by 1.1”. This step might be a little hard to understand but, it’s very easy. When we multiply our price by 1.1, we increase the price by 10%. In the case we wanted to increase it by 20% we would have to multiply it by 1,2, and so on.
- For this example, there’s nothing to add in the “Else” section.
We have almost finished our sync but, before that, we have to tell Bukisync if we want this new rule to apply to new products, existing products, or suppressed products. In this example, as you can see in the image, we only sync the price and stock of the existing products in our store.
We choose the frequency with what we want to sync our store. In this case, it will not be needed to program anything as we won’t be increasing the VAT regularly. If there was a rule in which we want to sync the stock, we could do it daily, hourly, etc. According to our business needs.
That’s it! We hit “Play” and, our store will begin to Sync.
From now on, we can create new syncs, delete or edit the existing ones.
You can have synced your physical and online stock in a few easy steps without investing a lot of time, without errors from a .xml file.
