To get started, simply navigate to your company properties and click on Shopify. The system will ask for your Shopify store URL first, and then provide a series of permissions that need to be granted within the private app for it to work properly.
Once you've clicked into the Shopify connection in SKUSavvy, you'll first be prompted for your store URL.
To find your myShopify store URL, log in to your Shopify admin then at the top you will see the URL. It is shown in the format your-store-url.myshopify.com and for the purpose of adding the app to SKUSavvy, we are only concerned with the [your-store-url] part.
Now that you have your store URL you can enter it within the Shopify settings on SKUSavvy. Simply enter this value in, and proceed to the next step.
For Shopify and SKUSavvy to work together, you'll need to create a private app from the Shopify Apps page. This is similar to an app being available within the Shopify app store. In transparency, we wanted to get SKUSavvy close to perfection before launching on the app store. In addition, Shopify takes 15% of revenues over $1m.
Within your Shopify account click on 'Apps'. In the top bar click on 'Develop Apps' which will take you to create a new private app.
From the private apps screen click on 'Create An App' which will take you to a new page for adding an app name and URL as well as to set permissions for the app.
You might need to enable custom apps on your account if you haven't already. Do so by clicking on 'Allow Custom App Development'
When you create the new app you'll be prompted to enter a Private app name and a developer email address. Enter the following:
Private App Name: SKUSavvy.com
Emergency Developer Email: developers(at)skusavvy.com
The next step is to click on 'Show Inactive Admin API Permissions'
In the permissions available you need to set the following read/write access to the app. It's important to point out we are not holding, downloading, or otherwise outside of the sole use within your own SKUSavvy account.
