Why do you need to analyze products when I install the app?
When you install the app you might find that you need to wait a bit while the app "analyzes your products". What this means is that behind the scenes we're creating a copy of your product data on our database.
We need a copy of the product data in our database so we can support all the product search features in the app. Without it, you'd be limited to just a few search filters and they would take much longer to run.
You should only need to do this when you install the app because going forwards, Shopify will send us a message every time a product is updated (called a webhook). We take these messages and use them to keep our local copy of your products in sync with your Shopify data.
We only store product-related data (not orders) with this app and if you uninstall it we no longer receive the product updates from Shopify.
