Integrating your Shopify store with Factori platform for data enrichment

What is Shopify?

Shopify is a complete commerce platform that lets anyone start, grow, manage, and scale a business. It enables businesses to build an online store, market to customers, and accept payments across multiple sales channels and locations—all in one place.

Steps to integrate Shopify with Factori

Create a custom app on the Admin Dashboard

A custom app is an app that you or a developer builds exclusively for your Shopify store. You can use custom apps to add features to your Shopify admin, access your store's data directly using Shopify's APIs, or extend your online store to other platforms using the Storefront API.

Before you can create a custom app for your store, you need to enable custom app development. You need to be the store owner or a staff member with the "Enable app development" permission to enable custom app development.

  2. Click Develop apps.
  3. Click Allow custom app development.

Create and install a custom app

After you've enabled custom app development, you can create and install a custom app in your Shopify admin. You need to set API scopes to determine which parts of your store the custom app can access. After the app is installed, you'll receive access tokens that the app uses to access information from your store using Shopify's APIs.

The store owner, and collaborators and staff members with the relevant permissions, can create and install custom apps.

  2. Click Develop apps.
