eWallet® on Mac OS X includes a synchronization engine called SyncPro® that allows syncing between a master cloud wallet and a local wallet. Need help setting up sync for the first time? You've come to the right place!

This article includes written steps in addition to two short videos: one covers starting with a cloud wallet, while the other covers starting with a local wallet. Note that this information is also included in eWallet's built-in help documentation, which you can get to from the Help Center in the Help menu.
