How does Bold integrate with ShopPad?

In June 2014, we announced that ShopPad app and Bold play nicely together. We're extremely excited about this as it means that literally thousands of Bold App users can now use ShopPad, too! If you don't have the ShopPad app in your store, you can grab it here.  
All ShopPad accounts come with a 15 day free trial so give it a go!

 

What exactly does the integration do? 

Unfortunately, we weren't able to pass the full functionality of our apps through to ShopPad; however, what we were able to do was build a system that made it so if you use our apps, the hidden products and variants won't display on ShopPad. So you're safe to use both apps now! It's only phase one, but it's a huge improvement!

In a nutshell: You can use ShopPad and Bold Apps together and nothing should break on your ShopPad store. Not all the functionality will be there, but nothing will break. :-)  This is version 1.0 of our integration and in the future we hope to be adding some of the apps' functionality to ShopPad. For phase 1 (now), our first goal was to make it so at the very least you can use both apps and customers on ShopPad won't see your Customer Pricing, Quantity Break, or hidden variants. 

Here's an app-by-app description of how each integration will work on ShopPad.

Product Discount

All the discount features work, scheduling discounts works, discounting by different sections such as brand, type, vendor, collection, etc works. The only thing that doesn't work is the countdown timer, sales icons, and the duplicate and hide feature.

Product Upsell

Everything works fine on the desktop version of your website, Upsell offers will not pop up on ShopPad.

Customer Pricing

The functionality of the this app will not work on ShopPad. However, the integration does make it so any hidden products and variants for your wholesale customers created with this app will not appear on ShopPad for anyone to purchase. That's how it was before. So no damage will be done and you're safe to have both apps; customers will simply not be able to access the Customer Pricing on ShopPad. 

Product Options

The functionality of Product Options will not work on ShopPad. However, the integration does make it so any hidden products created with the Product Option app will not appear on ShopPad.

Quantity Breaks

The Quantity Break feature will not work on ShopPad, BUT the good news is the hidden variants used for Quantity Breaks will not be visible to all your customers. So everything will work fine on ShopPad, just the customer will not be able to get the Quantity Break pricing
