Shopify Integration

Candid integrates directly with Shopify to import product data and optionally sync inventory with your DTC locations.

"Until Candid, wholesale was just painful. Now it’s finally simple and under control and we have room to grow. On top of that, knowing what our cashflow looks like has been a huge change for us."

Candid x Shopify Integration

Sync your products with Shopify.

Say goodbye to stale data and CSV uploads. Any time changes are made to product or variant details in Shopify – including images – those products and variants will update in Candid in real time.

Push purchased products to Shopify.

When a buyer completes a wholesale purchase in Candid, they have the option of pushing the products directly to their connected Shopify store. New products are created, existing products have their quantities updated.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes! We’re happy to be your one and only wholesale channel, but we also don’t mind sharing. Wholesale is hard enough as is – we don’t want to add to that!

For Sellers

  • A CSV or e-commerce store from which to upload your products into Candid. We currently integrate directly with Shopify, Squarespace, and WooCommerce. We also accept CSV uploads from pretty much anywhere else, provided they have all the columns we need (product title, option, primary image, etc.)
  • A location to ship from.
  • A way to accept payments. (This can be as basic as the words “Send me a check”)
  • Ideally a computer. Candid works on mobile and tablet, but a lot of the seller features are much, much easier to use on a computer.

We are similar to a wholesale marketplace in that we are a buying and selling platform, but we are different in that Candid is primarily a tool used to manage your wholesale activities all in one place. 

 

Most marketplaces are good for discovery, but that’s about it, and they generally offer more benefits to the buyer. You also run the risk of competing with similar brands and having fewer repeat customers. Candid’s software, however, makes it easy to create and maintain relationships with your vendors – sellers get to know buyers, see order history and have direct communication. Candid will also never advertise competitors’ goods to your customers, which is the main feature of some marketplaces.

Yes! Candid supports tracking numbers from all platforms (and integrates directly with Shipstation) so your order and shipping info are synced and buyers can track their shipments.

Yes! Candid’s analytics can show you best-selling products across buyers, seasons, or any other criteria you’d like.

There’s no limit. All of the images in your DTC product listing will port over to Candid, including the primary / featured image (which you can change in Candid if you’d like).

Any new products added in your DTC product listing will sync to Candid in real time. However, they will not be added to your buyer-facing Candid catalog until you add them in. This lets you set prices, organize & add notes before making products available for wholesale, and frees you up from having to worry about your Candid catalog changing out from under you when you make changes to your DTC website.

It’s up to you! You can either have Candid “own” your wholesale inventory, or sync to a specific location in Shopify. You can read more about it here.

For Buyers

  • Reseller license.
  • A location to receive shipments.
  • A unique web address for your account (social media is fine if you don’t have a website).

There's much more that Candid can do for you.
