DSYNC is a very flexible data integration platform and can do some weird and wonderful integration features. If you would like extras that are not covered in the above work flow we do have a professional services option where we can custom code integration features. We charge a scoping fee if you would like something that is not part of the above integration flow.
Why are my adverts displayed as invalid in Marketplacer when they are in-stock on Magento? These items are considered invalid is because they don't have images. The DSYNC errors show us that there are products that do not have images; though it does not mean data is not going through. It’s telling us that the products without images are going through but they will be considered “invalid”.
