Re-synchronize Images in Woomelly for WordPress
In this article, we will explain how to re-synchronize images in Woomelly for WordPress. It’s important to highlight that this functionality only applies to WooCommerce products that are previously connected with Mercado Libre. Its purpose is to delete existing images (whether in Mercado Libre or WooCommerce) and synchronize new images (whether in WooCommerce or Mercado Libre).
What does image re-synchronization consist of?
This functionality allows you to resend existing images in your product/publication to the other sales channel. The process ensures a better outcome, as the images are not overwritten, but completely deleted and synchronized again with changes made to the new images.
When is it useful to re-synchronize images?
You can use this function in the following cases:
- If the image update has been omitted in synchronizations and you only want to resend those images
- If you are synchronizing from WooCommerce to Mercado Libre and the images do not display correctly in Mercado Libre. In this case, re-synchronizing them can help discard errors.
- If you are synchronizing from Mercado Libre to WooCommerce and some images do not appear in WooCommerce. Re-synchronizing them can help discard errors.
- If you are synchronizing from WooCommerce to Mercado Libre and you change from a simple publication to a publication with variants. Mercado Libre requires that the images be resent, so this functionality is useful in this scenario.
Where can images be re-synchronized?
You can do this in the following ways:
By selecting the option to re-synchronize images and synchronize:
In batches (bulk actions)
By selecting the option to re-synchronize images and synchronize (using WordPress’s bulk actions).
In this case, you must contact technical support to provide you with an extension that enables re-synchronization. This will allow you to perform a massive manual synchronization or an automatic synchronization. However, this option is recommended to be used only in specific cases, as it consumes many resources of the server where your store is hosted.
