This table explains the data between CatchFeeder and Shopify
|CatchFeeder Data ||Shopify Data||Catch Marketplace Data|
|SKU ||This is the Shopify product ID - a number generated by Shopify when you create a product|
|Retailer Reference ||This is the Shopify Variant ID - a number generated by Shopify when you create a product|
|MPN ||This is the Variant SKU from Shopify||MPN Field in Catch|
|UPC||From the field labelled Barcode (ISBN, UPC, GTIN, etc.) in Shopify||UPC field in Catch|
This is important information to note when creating Product Groups in Catchfeeder. Product Groups require the SKU we have in Catchfeeder NOT the sku you may have used on Shopify.
The actual field in Shopify called SKU is not a mandatory field nor a required field, so it is not a reliable field in Shopify. Our App must have a SKU as part of the Catch listing requirement and because we cannot rely on Shopify providing that data via the SKU field we use the Shopify Product ID to create a SKU in Catchfeeder. This Catchfeeder SKU cannot be edited and it must be used when creating groups, promotions etc.
