What is the best way to keep local product variant data in sync with Shopify products? App loses track of product variants and fails to keep up to date because of multiple factors:

  • Shopify allows duplicate SKU
    Mechants changing SKU causes desync in inventory of physical items
  • Existing Product Variant ID changes when new variants added to the product that has no variants (or one variant technically)
    Completely lose track of product if both variant ID and SKU changes
  • Product ID & Variant ID becomes null when deleted
    When merchant delete products and creates again with the same SKU
