Preparing your Lightspeed Retail Data

Before syncing data from your Retail account into your Enhanced PO app, you'll want to ensure all vital data in your Retail catalog has been filled out completely. On this page, we'll note which Retail data is especially important to the operation of the app.

Preparing Products

The app imports the following fields from your Retail catalog's products:

  1. Description (Title)
  2. UPC
  3. Custom SKU
  4. Manufacturer SKU
  5. Default Cost
  6. Tags
  7. Categories
  8. Brands (Manufacturer)
  9. Vendor IDs/numbers
  10. Attribute Sets
  11. Matrices
  12. Retail's auto-generated numeric System ID

It's important you have the needed vendors assigned to your items (and unique Vendor IDs if you plan to use the app's import feature). If you intend to search for items by Brand, Category, or Tags within the app, be sure those are properly assigned as well.

Verifying Vendors

When importing vendors from your Retail account, the app will grab:

  1. Vendor's Name
  2. Contact Address
  3. Contact Email Address
  4. Account Number
  5. Retail's auto-generated numeric System ID
  6. The products assigned to each specific vendor

Setting-up Shops

Now referred to as "Locations" in Lightspeed Retail

The shop info imported from Retail into the app includes:

  1. Shop Name
  2. Contact Email Address
  3. Contact Address
  4. Retail's auto-generated numeric System ID

The contact address of each shop will be used as that shop's Ship To address (the address the vendor would send a shipment when a shop is the "Ship To Location" for the purchase order).
