MerchantSpring requires your Shopify store URL and an API key issued by your store in order to connect to your store and display data.


Obtaining your store URL

Your store URL is the web address ending with myshopify.com that you use to view and manage your store. If you use a custom store domain, please enter the original web address of the store, not the custom domain.

Obtaining your store API password

Marketplace Manager utilises Shopify's private app functionality. To obtain an API key for use with Marketplace Manager, follow the steps below:

  1. From your Shopify admin page, go to Apps and click on "Manage Private Apps".

2. Click on "Create a private app".

3. Fill in the fields as shown below to create a private app. Any other fields not shown in the image below can be left as their default values. Make sure to provide the right permissions (highlighted fields).

4. Once the private app is created, copy the API password by clicking on the clipboard on the right of the "Password" field.

5. Log in to your MerchantSpring Marketplace Manager account. Go to "Add Store" then click on the Shopify button.

6. Type your Shopify store URL then paste the copied API Password into the Shopify connection page in your Marketplace Manager account. Click the "Connect" button.

7. After this screen, your Shopify store will then be connected to the Marketplace Manager. Congratulations!
