Product Option Settings support advanced product features for SKU Remapping, Pricing, Weight Units, Image Alt Text, and Archived Product Action. The options vary somewhat depending on the point of sale you are using.
Below are the preset settings for Lightspeed Retail users on Basic Plan. Users with Startup (formerly Pro) Plan and above can adjust these settings:
- CustomSKU/Product Code
- Manufacturers SKU (Lightspeed Retail)
- SystemID/ProductID (the auto-generated ID for the product in point of sale)
Set Price and Set Compare At Price
Pricing Levels from Lightspeed Retail will show up in both dropdown menus. Lightspeed Retail users default to Price=Default and Compare At Price=MSRP. Lightspeed Onsite users default to Price=Web Price and Compare At Price=Selling Price.
Image Alt Text Source
- First Option
This is the variant's first "Option" name. In most accounts this will be the color of the variant. For single products this will sync no Alt Text.
- Web Short Description
This syncs the product's Web Short Description from POS to the image alt text.
Archived Product Action/Non-Current Product Action
Lightspeed Retail or Heartland users will see this setting as the "Archived Product Action".
Lightspeed Onsite users it will see this setting as the "Non-Current Product Action".
To protect against accidental deletions, the default setting is Ignore. In this case, no action is taken.
You may also have this setting Hide products; this allows you to easily identify any products that have not been setup properly then delete them manually from Shopify.
Note: Update Visibility must be enabled for the Hide action to work. If Update Visibility is not enabled the integration will act as if set to Ignore.
Note: This action will only impact Matrices or Single Products (products that are linked to Shopify Products). Shopify Variants are not impacted.
If you would like changes to result in deletion of the product, you may set this to Delete. Be sure that all of your products are tagged or set to sell on webstore before choosing Delete.
Note: Product data manually added to Shopify is not saved by the integration. Please consider your risk of data loss before setting the integration to Delete.
