Brightspot Content Types Guide

Product


You can create a product asset to advertise one of your products in Brightspot. This topic describes creating a new product from scratch; however, products are more commonly generated via import from an integration with Shopify.

Note
When configuring a Shopify integration, you can enable automatic actions that automate the curation and maintenance of your Shopify products in Brightspot, including:
  • Automatically importing new products to Brightspot when they are created in Shopify.
  • Automatically updating products imported to Brightspot when they are updated in Shopify.
  • Automatically deleting products imported to Brightspot when they are deleted in Shopify.
For details on how to configure automatic actions, Configuring the Shopify integration.

After products are imported from Shopify into Brightspot, any edits made to the content edit form described in this topic override the imported values from Shopify. Overrides in this case are one-way, only applying to the imported product in Brightspot, and do not flow back to the product on Shopify.

Caution
If you have auto-sync enabled, Shopify becomes the source of truth, and values in Brightspot are overwritten. For details, see Understanding the Shopify-Brightspot synchronization.

For details on how to import products from Shopify, see Importing Shopify products into Brightspot.
