Product fields

When exporting purchase orders from NuORDER that contain products that have not been matched to a product in Retail POS, the following product item fields are sent to Retail POS to create the product.

If a product has already been matched to an existing product or was automatically matched by UPC, only the product fields denoted with an asterisk are sent to Retail POS.

When exporting an order containing a new variant of a previously exported product, a new item is created under the existing parent matrix item.

For example, product C was initially imported with the attributes Size: M, L, and, XL and Color: A10. In a new purchase order, Product C is imported with the additional attributes Size: S and Color: B11. A new item (with Size: S and Color: B11) will be created under the existing Product C parent matrix item.
