Pimberly – Shopify Connector Benefits

Grow your Shopify store with enriched product data

Take your Shopify store to new heights with enriched product data managed from Pimberly, mediated via our cutting-edge connector. The connector harnesses best-of-breed API technology to streamline the transfer of detailed product information from Pimberly to Shopify.

From an unlimited number of complex product attributes for the most complicated products to SEO-enriched product descriptions, this data will all be pushed into your Shopify store. Our Shopify PIM solution ensures your online store benefits from detailed and consistent product information.

Below are some of the Shopify-specific data points you can manage from Pimberly’s central repository:

  • Related products and create product fields via metafields for improved cross-sell and up-sell opportunities
  • Product metafields at both parent/variant level
  • Push product imagery and other digital assets to Shopify’s Content Delivery Network (CDN)
  • SEO content
  • Product status management, controlling the ability to set when a product is active or in draft
  • Manage compare-at prices for products and variants

Efficient Mapping and Data Synchronization

We know that everyone’s Shopify store is different. So, we built the connector to allow Pimberly to understand the configuration of each user’s Shopify store.

The connector pulls back your set-up through our integration process, including meta fields, taxonomy, categories, etc. Whatever your data hierarchy looks like, Pimberly will digest it to ensure streamlined and standardized product data management between the two platforms.

You don’t have to manage product data in disparate systems or spreadsheets. With a fit-for-purpose system at your disposal, repetitive tasks are a thing of the past.

Have complete visibility over any product upload issues

When a product upload error occurs (mismatched attribution, missing information, or other data inconsistency), the connector logs the issue, pinpointing the nature of the error. The connector replays errors in an accessible manner, allowing you to make quick adjustments without spending valuable hours trying to spot the error in spreadsheets.

Whether it’s a simple typo—or a more complex data discrepancy—the guidance ensures users can quickly rectify errors confidently, enhancing the quality of the product data on Shopify.

Some of the ways the Pimberly – Shopify connector supports enterprise eCommerce…

In addition, the connector allows you to control when a product is in active or draft stage. You can plan product launches well before the official release date. In addition, this allows for effective campaign management. Preparing your product catalog well ahead of schedule for key events such as Black Friday gives you a competitive edge and maximizes sales opportunities.

Expand your product range with real-time product updates

The Pimberly–Shopify connector allows you to expand your product range and accelerate your time-to-market at a moment’s notice. Rather than relying on FTP (File Transfer Protocol), the fit-for-purpose solution facilitates near-instantaneous product updates, ensuring your Shopify store is dynamic and responsive to fast-changing consumer demands.

Pimberly also streamlines the process of product data management across multiple storefronts. Easily ensure product data is on-brand and consistent across multiple Shopify instances.

Event-Driven Architecture

Unlike FTP (file transfer protocol), Pimberly’s PIM Shopify integration utilizes an event-driven architecture. This facilitates the rapid synchronization of product data between Pimberly and Shopify.

When a product is updated or added in Pimberly, the change is queued for an update on your Shopify store, significantly reducing the time from conception to market availability.  Ensure your product range is always up-to-date and drive sales with the Pimberly – Shopify connector’s event-driven architecture.

Manage the connector from a bespoke UI for improved efficiency

Optimize your product data management via the connector’s bespoke UI. From here, you can oversee the integration between Pimberly and Shopify, giving you direct control over data synchronization and mapping.

You can release new products to market or amend existing ones from here. These modifications are made directly within the UI, so you don’t need to toggle between Pimberly and the Shopify backend to make any adjustments. Everything is entirely streamlined, saving your team from tedious, repetitive tasks.

During the handover, we ensure you and your staff understand the connector inside-out. Technical support is always a phone call away.
