How to integrate Shopify

Created by Maja Bradonjic, Modified on Thu, 6 Jul, 2023 at 6:53 PM by Ivana B


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

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 will show in this help article.

There are two ways to integrate Shopify in this article we will be explaining both of them.

The first way to integrate Shopify

The first option is to include our Public app from the Shopify store in your list of apps. This will redirect you to our app, allowing you to create a Shopify Integration without the need to manually enter your credentials.

Step 1: Select the Shopify integration from the integrations menu

Selecting the Shopify integrations

Step 2: Name the Integration

Naming the Integration

Step 3: Press the 'Go to Market' button

Inserting Shop URL and Access token

The following page will open, press the 'Add App' button:

Installing the SyncSpider application

4. Log in to your account and choose your store

Selecting a Shopify account


Selecting the desired Shopify store

Step 5: Installing the App

You will be redirected to your store backend, press the 'Install App' button

Installing the SyncSpider's App

Important Note: Please note that the following API access scopes need to be enabled in order for the Integration to work properly:


Step 6: Finalizing the Integration process

Once the App is installed, you will be redirected back to SyncSpider's Shopify Integration panel where your store credentials will be stored automatically.

Finishing the integration process

Press Finish.

The second 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 the 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 an 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 log in 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 the Shopify help file on how to create the 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. 


Selecting the Configuration


There are 2 parts to configuring the App:


  1. Admin API integration

  2. Storefront API integration

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



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 the 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.
