Get started with the Shopify source!

Obtain your credentials

If you don't know where to get your credentials for setting up a Shopify integration, you can learn where to find them here.

Enable the source

Head to the flow that you want to add the Shopify source to, and open the Sources page:

Search for the Shopify source and then click the Connect button.

Here is where you should put in your credentials for your Shopify account. If you don't have these credentials or don't know where to find them, read the guide below. Once you have finished putting in your credentials, click the Save & Continue button.

And that is it! You have linked the Shopify source!

Configure the field map

Now that you have connected your Shopify, you need to configure what data you want to pull. You can do this by adjusting your Shopify Field Map.

The first thing that you need to do is go ahead and click the Field Map button for the Shopify source.

Then to customize what data I want to pull, I can select the gear icon for one of the options. In this case, I am going to select customers.

You can now determine what objects you want to pull. Once you are done, click the Confirm button.

Now, just hit the save button, and you are done with mapping the fields you want to pull from Shopify!

Obtain your API Key and Shop name


The first thing you need to do is log in to Shopify. They have a free trial, so if you don't have an account, you can make one.

Your home page should look something like this. On the left side of the screen, you should select the Apps option in the navigation bar.

You should now be on the Apps page of your store. Near the bottom, you should click the link that says Manage private apps.

If you have not enabled private apps yet, your page will look like this. Click the Enable private app development button to get started.

It will ask you a few things. You should check all these off and hit the Enable private app development button.

This will now take you back to the Apps page, but now will give you the option to create a private app. You should select the Create Private App button.

Next, you need to fill in the private app name and your email.

Now you want to click the Show inactive Admin API permissions drop down in order to configure what data you would like to be able to pull from Shopify.

This will drop down a bunch of permissions that you can change. Make sure that you change whatever you would like to pull from and then click the Save button in the top right corner.

Once you have clicked Save, this popup will appear. Click the Create app button.

You now have the credential that you need to plug into hotglue!

The credential you are putting into hotglue is labeled as Password on this page. Make sure to copy the Password and not the API Key into hotglue.

Shop name

Finding your shop name is a much easier task.

In the top left hand corner should be the shop name you should input into hotglue.
