Shopify is an e-commerce platform for online stores and retail point-of-sale systems that offers online retailers a suite of services to help them operate their online store.
Now, with our new integration, you can get a high-level view of your store in one place and automatically track your products, inventory, and orders.
How to add it to your workflow?
Once you click on the Shopify integration banner you will see all the recipes we offer in terms of integration between both platforms, we focused on making monday.com as a command center from which you will be able to manage every aspect relating to your online shop - from keeping track on inventory to approving new designs for your products.
Once you click on one of the recipes the Shopify integration banner you will need to connect your Shopify details:
The first thing we need to do is create a private app on Shopify. Once you enter your information and log into your Shopify account, you will need to copy your API key in order to connect with monday.com. In your Shopify account's dashboard click on "Apps":
Then, click on "Manage Private Apps" at the bottom of the screen:
Create a new private app. Enter a name for the app (for example "monday.com"), enter your email and then save the app by clicking on the save button on the top right:
Next click "I understand, create the app", and voilà you have a new app!! In the Admin API section of your app, you will see the API key and Shared Secret that you need for the integration. Copy them into you monday.com integration screen.
So how does it work?
To understand better how this integration works, let's dive into an easy example: when a new order is placed in your Shopify store, create a new pulse in a group. First, connect your Shopify account:
Next, choose the group to add the new order to. In this case, it might make sense to have a "New orders" group so you can see all of your incoming orders:
Click on "Update Integration" and you are done 🎉
