- Use default carrier/service - When selected, all orders imported from WebShop Manager will use the selected carrier and carrier service. If this option is unchecked, carriers can be mapped between Fishbowl and WebShop Manager.

The flat rate amount can be set to $0 in the Tax Rate module and then the correct total tax amount will be set when the order is imported from WebShop Manager. If taxes are not imported, the Fishbowl payment will equal the order total before tax.
- Use Default Tax Item - With this option selected, the same tax item will be used for all orders.

- Schedule - Select the Active checkbox to import products on a set schedule. Click the Run task button to run the scheduled task right now. Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.

- Link existing products - This option will match existing products in Fishbowl and WebShop Manager where data matches in the selected fields.

Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.
Select ANY of the following options:
- Export new products- Map the fields that should be exported from Fishbowl to WebShop Manager. A default weight UOM and size UOM can also be specified. The selected product trees will be included, or all product trees will be included if the field is left blank. Selecting the Export all products option will ignore the last sync date and attempt to push all of the Fishbowl products to WebShop Manager. The product tree filter will still apply.
- Update linked products - This section has the same options as the Export new products section above. After the initial product export, only the selected fields will be updated.
- Schedule - Select the Active checkbox to export inventory levels to WebShop Manager on a set schedule. Click the Run task button to run the scheduled task right now. Data that has changed since the Last Sync date will be synchronized. This date will be updated automatically after a sync, or it can be manually edited to adjust which data will be synchronized.
- NOTE: When setting up the shopping cart integration for the first time you will want to adjust the Last Sync to a date before any of your products were created (for example, setting the year to 2000) so that it includes all of your products (or any applicable product tree filter) when updating inventory levels.
- Export company wide inventory - Include inventory quantities from all location groups in the inventory sync. If this option is unchecked, selected location groups can be added by clicking the Add button.
- Inventory Type - Select the inventory quantity that should be used during the update: Available For Sale, Inventory On Hand, or Available To Pick.
- Product Tree filter - The export can be limited to certain product tree categories. If this field is left blank, all products will be included in the export.

- For WebShop Manager websites using the Advanced Guided Search (AGS) technology, updated product information will not be presented on the frontend of the website until WebShop Manager has "indexed" the new data. After a scheduled import, please allow up to an hour for such changes to be visible on the frontend of the website. If you do not see the expected product data changes after an hour, please contact the WebShop Manager team to request an index. This only applies if your website is using WebShop Manager's AGS technology package.
