Working with multiple WooCommerce stores

To sync different WooCommerce stores with Holded, the process is the same as for synchronize only one, you will simply have to follow the steps to complete the configuration of each one.

☝🏼 It is enough to have a single API Key for all stores.

The integration can be done in terms of stock, or by synchronizing the products: it all depends on whether you have items in your stores with the same SKU or not.

Imagine you have three online stores: "Store A," "Store B," and "Store C." In each of them, you sell the same pair of sneakers with the SKU "12345".

  • Stock in WooCommerce: the stock of those sneakers must be the same in WooCommerce for all three stores. If you have 50 pairs of sneakers in total, each store should show that you have 50 available.

  • Import to Holded: in Holded, the products with SKU "12345" will be imported only from one of these stores, for example, "Store A."

  • Stock synchronization: stock synchronization must be enabled for all stores (Store A, Store B, and Store C) so that when a pair of sneakers is sold in any of the stores, the stock is updated in the others.

So, if you sell 5 pairs in "Store B," the stock will automatically reduce to 45 in "Store A" and "Store C" as well.

In case you have multiple WooCommerce stores, here are three different scenarios with our recommendations for the integration to work correctly:

Scenario 1: Identical SKUs and stock for all stores

If all products and their stock are the same in all stores:

  • Store A: product and stock synchronization enabled.

  • Store B: stock synchronization enabled.

Scenario 2: some stores share products with the same SKU and others do not

In this case, the products that have to be imported are only for one store, while the others must be created manually in Holded to avoid overwriting repeated items:

  • Store A: product and stock synchronization enabled.

  • Store B: stock synchronization enabled.

Scenario 3: different SKUs and stock in each store

In this scenario, each store has products with unique codes and stock:

  • Store A: product and stock synchronization enabled.

  • Store B: product synchronization and stock enabled.
