Data Synchronization

When you initially install Data Export, we require your shop records to sync with our app in order to generate your reports quickly.

Why is Data Sync necessary?

Once the Shop Data is synced with Data Export, the report generation occurs instantaneously. Data Sync is a prerequisite for generating the report at such rapid speeds.

API Call Limit

Shopify enables us to make 2 requests/second for Basic Shopify, Shopify, and Advanced Shopify users, and 4 requests/second for Shopify Plus users. Hence, sync time for Shopify Plus customers will be slightly faster.

We can extract 250 records with each request, but it takes a while to sync these records with the app. Data Export will sync data based on the API Call Limit allowed by Shopify.

How does data synchronization work when you first install Data Export?

When you first install Data Export, it will sync the data from the previous seven days. Following that, it will start syncing on a monthly basis. When the initial sync is complete, reports can be generated.
