    Hi Campbell, Yes, they will send you details on how to switch it, the Shopify end will be up to you but the instructions are pretty easy to follow and only a 5-10 min job to sort it, cheers,Andy

    Hi Chris,  Making the change to keep your store running in Tradevine is pretty easy, just contact their support desk and they will help - you better get onto it as still a delay in reply from there!    If anyone else interested, I ended up ditching Zoho Inventory, the integration with Shopify isn't quite there yet, have ended up using 'SumTracker' for inventory management which is much simpler and works well, and do invoicing using 'Easy Invoice+' cheers,Andy

    Thanks Lucy, appreciate the response - not sure that 100% clears it up for existing users who have had a Shopify link previously though - from what I have been told by a couple of your support desk: Shopify will be able to be relinked using the custom option reasonably easily, just a matter of connecting it up via providing Shopify API Credentials, and Tradevine will then be able to used exactly the same as it is currently for Shopify. If you can confirm that it would helpful, and remove the need to look for an alternative setup.  Presumably this is not being offered for any new Shopify con...

    Yeah that's right re Zoho, it doesn't show in their app store - when adding it from the Zoho end it goes through to shopify and confirms it via the Shopify app store though, so does end up as an authorised app. Some of that re app store is certainly muddying the waters and above my pay grade, I think am just going to carry on and sort my first store with Zoho and see how it goes.   Hopefully someone from Omnivore will comment soon and clarify, as their whole business relies on Shopify and linking up to Trademe, eBay, Amazon etc.     Hayley, re Multistore, it looked mostly good, i think it w...

    So you are saying it will no longer possible to build a third party app, have it authorised to appear in the Shopify app store such as https://apps.shopify.com/stock-buy ? Zoho and the other third party apps listed also have authorised Shopify apps, i.e when installed they appear as an 'app' under Shopify.    The reason Tradevine no longer working is they do the other way around, they setup the authorise from their end, rather than authorising if from the Shopify end, which are Shopify no longer allowing.    I don't think it's a wider Shopify conspiracy - if Tradevine went through the proce...

    Also, if that were the case Omnivore would also be stuffed.

  • Craig commented,

    Did you talk to Tradevine, or have they emailed you something - if emailed can you paste content in here?   That sounds extremely unlikely to me, all of Shopify's 3rd party apps use their API to some degree, so that would mean they are killing off the majority of the thousands of apps in their app store?   Zoho, and the other ones I mentioned are all installed via an app in their app store which connects them up.   Tradevine would easily have the capabilities to create one to link theirs up as well, I just think they haven't been given the developer resource to code one up as Trademe seem t...

    I've been coding that way too Melanie, just reconciling the grouped payment from Trademe to sales in Xero rather than generating invoices in there, but have been relying on Tradevine to send Tax invoices for orders, so that is gone too.   Shopify doesnt handle tax invoices without another app, so will do those from Zoho as well.

    This was my 2nd pick for inventory - https://www.stockandbuy.com/ , has good Xero integration, better UI, just a bit pricier.

  • Craig commented,

    Zoho have released a recent Xero integration - https://www.zoho.com/inventory/help//integrations/xero.html .  Yes as soon as you switched from Tradevine to Omnivore it is gone, only option is to dump as much data out to csv as you can using the reports in Tradevine.
