I need help to find an app or just solving my problem and was hoping someone could point me in the correct direction.
I need an app that constantly looks at the collections attached to a product and replicates them in the products tags field.
My theme (Wokiee) needs the product tags and the product collections to match. If they do not match, then the product will not show up in the collection.
I use Channel Advisor to push my product information over to Shopify using metafields every hour. My products have a tag metafield in Channel Advisor with a value of NO COLLECTION that sends over to Shopify as a tag. This way I can look up products with the tag NO COLLECTION in Shopify and add the correct collections and tags.
So here is my problem.
Once I add my collections and tags to a product in Shopify if I don’t go into Channel Advisor and remove the tag NO COLLECTIONS on the product, Channel Advisor will delete all the tags in Shopify and add back NO COLLECTIONS as a tag the next time it updates Shopify.
Therefore, I need to have a way to keep matching my tags to my collections. Or maybe find a way to make it so my Theme does not need tags?
I can keep doing this by hand but I have over 3k products so it can be very time-consuming.
Thank you for any help
Maybe look into using Zapier or Integromat to automate this process. They both have shopify webhooks that trigger when a collection or product is updated, as well as instructions on setting them up, and free/cheap plans depending on how much usage. Or, as mentioned you could run this process each hour.
