Many shopping carts and marketplace have strict daily limits on the number of API calls (ie the number of times a software can communicate with it).
When the connection is set to "Automatic Mode", Finale is designed to only push stock levels for the following three scenarios
- Finale will update any given product within 5 minutes of a stock change
- Finale will update any given product within 5 minutes if any of the product's attributes/details have changed
- Once nightly, Finale will update ALL product lookups to ensure Finale and the marketplace are in sync
*Note: If you want Finale to update skus immediatley, we recommend modifying the product attributes by populating an unused field.
We typically just add a character such as "=" in the 'product notes' field to trigger a stock update.
