A. Set up a Shopify connection
Start establishing a connection to Shopify in either of the following ways:
- From the Resources menu, select Connections. Then, click + Create connection at the top right.
– or –
- While working in a new or existing integration, you can add an application to a flow simply by clicking Add source or Add destination/lookup.
In the resulting Application list, select Shopify.
The Create connection panel opens with the required and advanced settings.
B. Provide required Shopify application details
At this point, you’re presented with options for providing Shopify authentication.
Name (required): Provide a clear and distinguishable name. Throughout integrator.io imports and exports, you will have the option to choose this new connection, and a unique identifier will prove helpful later when selecting among a list of connections that you’ve created.
Application (required, non-editable): A reminder of the app you’re editing.
Authentication type(required): Select Token as the authentication type for this connection. The form changes depending on the selected authentication type. The Basic and OAuth 2.0 authentication types are documented separately.
Store URL (required): Enter the unique portion of your Shopify store URL. For example, if the URL is
https://demo-store.myshopify.com, then enter
Version (required): Select your Shopify account’s API version. For example, 2022-10. For more information, see Shopify API versioning.
Access token (required): Enter the access token created in the Shopify custom app. Multiple layers of protection are in place, including AES 256 encryption, to keep your connection’s access token safe. When editing this form later, you must enter this token again; it is stored only when the connection is saved and never displayed as text.
- Sign in to your Shopify account.
- Navigate to Apps > App and sales channel settings > Apps and sales channels > Develop apps.
- Click Create an app. The Create an app window appears.
- Provide the App name.
- From the App developer drop-down, select the required name.
- Read the license and click Create app.
- Click Configure admin API scopes, select the required scopes, and click Save.
- Click Install app. The Install window appears.
- Read the license and click Install.
- From the Admin API access token section, read the Note, and click Reveal token once.
- Copy the token.
Important: You can view the Admin API access token on this page only once. Hence, it is recommended to copy and save your token in a secure place. Consider this token as a password and share it only with the developers you trust.
C. Edit advanced Shopify settings
Before continuing, you have the opportunity to provide additional configuration information, if needed, for the Shopify connection.
D. Test the connection
Once you have configured the Shopify connection, you have a few options for continuing:
- Save – click this button to test the connection, commit the new connection so that it will be available to all integrations for your account
- Save & close – click to test and save the connection and exit the Create connection panel
- Close – click to exit without saving any new changes
- Test connection – click this button to verify that your new connection is free of errors
When you test or save the connection, it is verified before continuing.
The new connection is now successfully added to your account. It will be applied to the current source or destination app if you created it within a flow. Otherwise, you may proceed to register the connection with an integration.
