FarApp offers two types of product sync:
1. Full Product Sync
FarApp syncs full product data such as title, description, images, price, quantity, etc from NetSuite to your marketplace/cart. *Please note that if you are doing a Full Product Sync you do not also need to turn on the Price and Quantity Sync. Price and quantity updates are part of the Full Product Sync. For Full Product Sync, you will install the 'FarApp Marketplace/Cart - Item Fields Bundle' in addition to the standard 'FarApp NetSuite Bundle'. You can find instructions for installing the 'FarApp Marketplace/Cart - Item Fields Bundle' here. Customers should create new items in NetSuite and rely on FarApp to create new listings in the marketplace/cart.
2. Price and Quantity Sync (sometimes written as "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.
