Enabling the BigCommerce Inventory Sync on your Zentail integrations page gives Zentail permission to send inventory data to BigCommerce. Before you enable this feed option, make sure you are confident about the inventory in Zentail.

Key Considerations

When does Zentail send inventory to BigCommerce?

Please note that Zentail will send inventory info to BigCommerce if all of the following are true:

  1. If the Inventory Sync Feed is enabled

  2. The SKU is set to "List" to BigCommerce

  3. The SKU is an "active" SKU on Zentail

If the above conditions are satisfied, Zentail will send a price feed to BigCommerce:

  1. Whenever the product data or price changes in Zentail.

  2. Whenever inventory changes on Zentail as a result of a change from anywhere other than BigCommerce* OR

  3. At least once every 24 hours

Note: This means that if you upload a new quantity into Zentail, or an order comes in from a non-BigCommerce channel, then Zentail needs to notify BigCommerce of the new quantity. If the quantity changes due to an order on BigCommerce for that SKU, Zentail does not need to inform BigCommerce of the new quantity. BigCommerce has already deducted quantity to account for that order.

  1. Make sure your integration is in Production Mode
