Shopify: Authentication guide

This guide will walk you through how to authenticate or reauthenticate Shopify in Dataslayer for Google Sheets, Looker Studio, BigQuery, and API Query Manager.

To connect Dataslayer to Shopify, you need a Shopify store owner account or a Shopify staff account.

Open our Google Sheets extension, our Looker Studio connector, our API Query Manager or our BigQuery products.
Select our Shopify integration. A new window will open in your browser. You need your Shopify name and your Shopify access token. To have this one, you have to follow these steps:

Go to and open your store.
In your store portal (https://{YOUR-STORE} click on "Apps" in the left menu.
Click on "Develop Apps for your store".
At this point you have to create a new app. So click on "Create an app" and write its app name.
In your new app, go to "API credentials".
What Dataslayer needs is the "Access token", so click on "Configure Admin API scopes".
Here, you have to accept at least this required scopes: read_products, read_customers, read_orders, read_fulfillments, read_analytics.
Click on "Save" --> "Install App" --> "Install".
Now you have your Admin API access token. Click on "Reveal token once" and Copy it.
You can go back to the Dataslayer Login for Shopify window and fill in the Shop name and the Shop access token you have already copied.
You are already logged into Dataslayer for Shopify.

Please, introduce the correct Shopify store name. The format of the Store name is only MYSTORE, please don't input this or any variations of it.

Connecting multiple Shopify stores
If you want to pull data for multiple Shopify stores, you will need to repeat the authentication process for each one.
