How our sync works
Upon installing Sparq Product Filter and Search on your store for the first time, we initiate a data pull from Shopify and process it to enable efficient searching for your store users. The duration of this process varies based on the number of products, collections, and pages in your store.
To ensure a seamless user experience, we process the items in batches, with each batch containing 100 products. We refrain from enabling the search on your store until the first batch is entirely processed. This approach prevents users from encountering empty search pages or dropdowns when they visit your store.
Throughout the data synchronization process, you'll be kept informed about the progress with a message and a progress bar, ensuring transparency and clarity.
By following these steps, you'll be able to harness the full potential of Sparq Product Filter and Search, providing your customers with an improved and efficient search experience on your Shopify store.
Sync Frequency (5 minutes)
Sparq Search offers real-time data sync, meaning that your Shopify store data is updated multiple times(every 5 minutes). During these partial sync periods, the search functionality on your store remains unaffected. However, due to the volume of data involved (only the records that have changed since the last update), there may be a brief period when the data in search results is slightly out of sync.
This out-of-sync condition typically lasts for just a few minutes until all the data is synced once again. Rest assured that this temporary discrepancy does not impact the overall search performance or the user experience on your store.
As Sparq strives to provide seamless and up-to-date search results, any minor incongruities during the partial sync period are quickly resolved, ensuring that your customers continue to enjoy an optimal search experience on your Shopify store.
