For Price/Qty Sync, FarApp only syncs price and/or quantity data from NetSuite to your marketplace/cart. You have the option of only syncing quantity data, price data or both. The SKUs using this sync must already exist in the marketplace/cart. Since FarApp is only sending price and/or quantity data to the marketplace/cart along with the SKU it wants to update, FarApp does not actually possess enough information to create a SKU on the marketplace/cart . This means that the SKU should already exist on the marketplace/cart with the title, description, images, etc that you want.
