Important Notes

  • Product Publishing: Imported products will not be published to your eCommerce store by default; you must manually enable them. In the current version, product descriptions won’t be pulled from Printful.
  • Product Retention: Upon uninstalling the Marketplace App, products will not be deleted from the LeadConnector store location.
