Configuring the Bridge to Ecwid

When activating your Ecwid account, a communication bridge was established between Alice POS and Ecwid. Below is a list of things you’ll need to configure:

Synchro AlicePOS

This page allows you to force the synchronization of your newly added products in Alice.

Whether it be for a specific category selectable from the drop-down menu, or your complete inventory, clicking on Create products, you will force synchronization of your products into Ecwid.

Configuration AlicePOS

Clicking on Settings will bring you to the Alice POS centric configurations.

Alice

Acccess and Secret key

When we create the Alice POS/Ecwid bridge, we have created your access key and secret key. We strongly recommend you do not change or modify these fields. Doing so will interrupt the communication between Alice POS and Ecwid.

Options

Sync interval (minutes / 0 = no sync)

Time lapsed between synchronizations. For example, setting 10 means that Ecwid will be updated every 10 minutes.

We recommend setting for 30 minutes. Lowering time between synchronizations can cause system slowdowns.

Max amount of products to create per request (0 = no limit)

Determines the maximum quantity of items to create when synchronizing. Adding 0 means you will sync your complete inventory.

During the first few synchronizations, we recommend limiting the number of items. Once the bulk of your inventory has been synched and added, you can set the quantity to 0.
