- Support for Images Export from NetSuite to Shopify
To support this feature, the NetSuite Item to Shopify Product Add/Update and NetSuite Matrix Item to Shopify Product Add/Update integration flows have been enhanced to accommodate adding or updating product images along with other product details. Images that need to be imported can be in form of files and URLs inside of NetSuite and are exported as URLs to Shopify. Once all images are exported to Shopify, it downloads the image from the URL and renders it.
For more information see, Image export using the product data flows.
- Support for Virtual Variations (parent/child relationship without using matrix item feature)
To support this feature, the NetSuite Matrix Item to Shopify Product Add/Update flow has been enhanced to accommodate creating virtual variation items. This feature allows you to leverage the virtual variation functionality by Celigo to setup parent-child relationship between the Inventory (Matrix & Non-Matrix), Assembly (Matrix & Non-Matrix), and Kit Items without using matrix item feature in NetSuite.
As part of this enhancement, you are no longer required to use NetSuite's native Matrix Item functionality to setup parent-child relationship instead you can use simple items and a custom field to create a virtual parent-child relationship between their SKUs.
For more information see, Setup parent-child relationship in Shopify without NetSuite's Matrix Item functionality.
- Support for Kit Inventory Export
A new data flow has been added that exports Kit inventory (quantity) from NetSuite to Shopify. Kit quantity is calculated independently for each NetSuite inventory location. If multiple NetSuite inventory locations are mapped to one Shopify Fulfilment node, then the kit quantity for each NetSuite location is calculated independently and a total of these quantities is synced to Shopify.
Shopify does not have a concept of Kits/bundles, therefore some of our customers have modeled their NetSuite Kits as simple items in Shopify. Connector now supports calculating inventory of Kit Items in NetSuite & export them to the corresponding simple items in Shopify.

- External Id to prevent duplicate customer record
To prevent the creation of duplicate customer records in NetSuite, connector now tags NetSuite each new customer record with a unique external Id (just like orders).
