Bynder & Shopify

This connector between Shopify and Bynder is a powerful tool used to transfer Bynder assets to the Shopify media library, and link the asset to the product using Bynder metadata. This allows users to quickly and easily access Bynder assets in the Shopify media library, and use Bynder metadata to ensure the assets are linked to the right products. This connector is a great way to streamline the process of managing assets and products in Shopify.

This feature allows for a simple workflow when sending images to Bynder. First, the user must select the type of image they wish to send (original image or transformed image). Then, the user must select the metadata in Bynder assets that contains the product skus (or the variant skus). Finally, the user must select the mode of sending, either full or delta. Full mode sends all of the image data, while delta mode only sends the changes made to the image.

Goal of the Bynder & Shopify connector

This connector is used to transfer:

  • Send Bynder asset to Shopify media library
  • Link the asset to the product using Bynder metadata
