If you have a product(s) that is currently in EdgeCTP and you wish to list it onto your Shopify store then do the following steps.
Tagging an EdgeCTP product(s) for listing on Shopify

- Click Save and then Close to return to the Products & Inventory dashboard. At this point, you can either proceed with the listing from the current Product & Inventory dashboard or use the main eCommerce dashboard method (shown next below)
- Repeat the above steps to tag any other products you wish to list on Shopify
