Step 1: Get an access token from Shopify

To integrate Shopify with Plecto, you need to provide your Shopify subdomain and an access token.

To get the access token, you need to create a new app in your Shopify account. We'll tell you along the way where to find the subdomain.

Here's how to create a Plecto app in Shopify:

  1. Go to Apps > App and sales channel settings.

  2. Click Develop apps for your store > Create an app.

  3. Enter an App name (such as Plecto) and select an App developer.

  4. Click Create app.

  5. Click Configure Admin API scopes.

  6. Enable read_customers for the data type Customers and read_orders for the data type Orders.

  7. Click Save in the top-right corner.

  8. Open the API credentials tab and click Install app > Install.

  9. Shopify will generate an access token. Click Reveal token once to see your access token.

  10. Copy the token and store it in a safe place in case you need to use it again.

  11. Proceed to Step 2.

Step 2: Integrate Shopify with Plecto

  1. In Plecto, go to Data management > Data sources > + New data source > Shopify.

  2. (Optional) Rename your credentials.

  3. Insert your Shopify subdomain and access token and click Next.

  4. Select the data you want to import.

  5. Configure your data source settings. Here, you can change the title, choose the default date, select which fields to import, and more.

  6. Click Next to choose how much data to import and how long you want to keep it in the data source.

  7. Click Import to finish.
