Is there a limit to the number of listings that can be updated at once?
While there's no specific limit to the number of listings that can be updated at once in Vela, channels impose rate limits on updates per shop within a given period of time. Most users won't encounter these limits, but if you have over 2,500 listings or numerous variations/options per listing, consider updating 500 listings at a time or less initially. If all goes well, you can increase the number of listings to update.
How long does it take for updates to sync from Vela to the channel?
After performing updates and clicking "Sync updates," a sync status indicator will appear. The time for updates to sync depends on the number of listings and the type and amount of updates. In general, most updates will sync in in just a few moments. For very large updates (500+ listings or many listings including variations), the process can take up to 24 hours if rate limits are triggered. Once started, Vela ensures your updates go live as swiftly as marketplace rate limits allow.
