IMPORTANT NOTE: If you were using the Integration in the past please note that we changed how our Shopify Integration works and integrates. 

In order for the integration to be functional now you will have to change the configuration  in one of the two following ways that we show in this help article.


Select Shopify Integration


First way to integrate Shopify


Step 1.


Click on the ‘Integrations’ tab on the left side of the screen as shown in the screenshot below.


Selecting the Integration panel

Step 2.


You will be able to see all the integrations offered by SyncSpider on your screen. Select Shopify module.


Adding New Integration

Or use the search bar to find it easily:



Selecting the Shopify Integration

P.S. You can add new integration while Creating a task as well. 




Step 3.


After selecting the Shopify app, enter the integration name and description then click on the next button.


Naming the Integration

NOTE: You can have more than one integration with one app/tool. E.G. Integrate your Google sheet with business email and WooCommerce. Using descriptions will help you to organize better.


Step 4.


Now, you need to acquire API key and API Password ( API Secret Key) . The next steps will help you to generate it. 


Inserting the credentials

To generate the API key, you would need to login to your Shopify account. This API key has to be entered so that it facilitates the integration between Sync Spider and Shopify.

Here is the link to Shopify help file on how to create API key. You can follow our instructions as well:  


Step 5.

Log in to the Shopify account with the credentials. 


Logging in to Shopify

Step 6. 

Click on "Apps" -> "Develop Apps for your store".


Creating a new App inside Shopify

Step 7.

Click on "Create an App" or use your existing one .


Creating a new App inside Shopify

Then name your app and use your email as the App developer email and click on "Create app".


Choosing the App Name

Step 8.  Configuration 


Selecting the Configuration


There are 2 parts of configuring the App:


  1. Admin API integration

  2. Storefront API integration


Step 8. a) Admin API Integration

Selecting the Admin API integration

If you want to Export data from SyncSpider then check Write.

If you want to Import data from SyncSpider then check Read.


Configuring the API scopes



Step 8. b) Storefront API integration


Selecting the Storefront API integration

The same rule applies to Storefront API as they do to Admin API.


Configuring the Storefront API scopes

Step 9.

API Credentials


To obtain your API Credentials, simply go to "API Credentials" and under API Key and API Secret key you will find the needed credentials to copy and paste to Syncspider.


Generating the API key and API secret key


Step 10.

Access Token


To obtain Access token you will have to Install the App, to install it first you will have to give read and/or write access in Configuration then Install the app. 


Click on "Install App" in the top right corner.


Obtaining the Access token

Then click on "Install".


Installing the SyncSpider App

After you have installed it, you will gain the Access token under "API Credentials" .


Generating the API access token

IMPORTANT NOTE: To protect your data, you’ll only be able to reveal your Admin API token once. Copy and save your Admin API access token in a secure place.



You can copy and paste Shop URL, Access Token, API key and API password (API Secret Key)  from the Shopify store to your SyncSpider account as shown below.

Then, click save.


Inserting the credentials

And the integration is successfully integrated.



Second way to integrate Shopify


Second way would be to add our Public app that is in Shopify to your app list and from there you will get redirected to our app to create an Shopify Integration without the need of the credentials.


IMPORTANT NOTE: Second way only works for users that have admin access for their Shopify Shops. 


Step 1.

In Shopify under apps search for SyncSpider and add it to the Apps List. 


Selecting SyncSpider Application

 After that click on "Add app" 

Adding SyncSpider App to Shopify

Then click on "Install App" .


Installing the App

Step 2. 

Click on "Connect Shopify Store".


This will redirect you to SyncSpider.


Connecting the Shopify store with SyncSpider

It will ask you for the Name and Description (Optional) of the integration, after that click on next.


Inserting a Name of the Integration

Then click on "Finish" ( there is no need for API Key and API Secret Key because you are creating it directly from Shopify's app).
