Businesses that are already managing inventory on existing centers find it difficult to create a new center for Shopify as managing the inventory for the Shopify center becomes operationally challenging.
To help such businesses, Zenoti now allows businesses to set up Shopify even on an existing center.
Businesses that have already set up Shopify on a new center, can move the Shopify center to an existing center.
Important: If businesses make any changes to products on Shopify, during migration from the new center to the existing center, these changes will be carried over to the products in Zenoti.
