Can I import my Candid orders into Shopify?

At this time there is not a way to automatically send orders made in Candid to Shopify. Orders created in Candid live entirely within Candid and our Shopify integration is limited to only inventory adjustments and the syncing of product details. However, if you need to recreate your Candid orders within Shopify for any reason, you may be able to do so by importing a CSV of your Candid orders into Shopify.

The reason we don't allow orders to sync back to Shopify is because it can break sales reporting and lead to major inaccuracies. It can also cause problems if you have products that were created in Candid and don't exist in your Shopify store(s). In general, we recommend keeping retail and wholesale orders separate whenever possible to help maintain accurate product inventory and sales reporting.
