Monitoring the Historical Data Sync
When you first integrate with WooCommerce, PostPilot will begin a historical data sync of your order and customer data. This can take anywhere from a few minutes to more than 24 hours, depending on the size of your store.
PostPilot will send you an email once the historical syncing has finished.
You can also see current status of the data sync in the PostPilot UI. Just head to the Integrations tab. Click on Manage
Once completed, you'll see a green Connected badge next to your store.
Once the historical sync is complete, new WooCommerce store data will sync to PostPilot every hour.
