Item MappingBack to top
It's now time to map your items in Checkfront to a product you have created in Vend. In a previous step, we created a product in Vend for the Valley Lodge (Single Room). This already exists in our Checkfront account as an item, so we'll go ahead and pull that up in Checkfront now.
As you can see, when clicking on the item's Advanced tab, a new Vend section has been added. From here you can choose the Vend SKU and the Vend Tax. Vend SKU: This is where you map the Checkfront item to the Vend product.
The first available option in the drop-down list is Import from Checkfront. If you select this, the item details from Checkfront will be imported into Vend and a brand new product will be created, based on those details.
There is a limitation to the data which is transferred, however, so you would then need to go in and update this further in Vend. We recommend creating the product in Vend from scratch and then using this drop-down menu to select it. This means that whenever a booking is made on the item in Checkfront, the details of that booking will be mapped to the product in Vend.
In the example we have created, we will choose Checkfront Lodge (Single Room) from the list. Vend Tax: Although we just chose a default tax for all bookings, not all items are taxable at the same rate. You can override that here.
