You only need to set these settings if you have products already in your store, which were not uploaded by Syncee or by this specific task.
These are one of the most important settings in Syncee. In the last section of your Mapping step in the wizard, you can select the data that Syncee will use to identify the products in your store that you have uploaded previously. You only have to set this if you didn't upload the products with Syncee, or if you uploaded them in another task. You can compare the data based on products or product variants.
If you select "Do not compare" Syncee will upload and update everything from your source file without searching for duplicate products in your store. If you know that you already have products in your Shopify store that is also included in the source file, please choose the field Syncee should use to identify them. It can be by product SKU, Barcode, Handle (The name of the product in your URL) or by product title.
If you would like to compare the data based on product variants, you need to set how you would like Syncee to identify product variants from your store. You can set it to "Do not compare" and Syncee will upload or update everything from your source file without comparing the products to your Shopify store inventory. Or, you can choose to identify them by variant SKU or variant Barcode.
