warning-icon-imonggoPlease note that these instructions are for the new v4 UI of Imonggo. Not yet on this version? Go to this Shopify + Imonggo integration article instead.

Imonggo’s new integration with Shopify lets you sync your inventory between your point-of-sale and your e-commerce website.

With this new Imonggo feature, you can decide what products in Imonggo are available for sale in your Shopify store. You may also send the sales you made on Shopify to your Imonggo account so you have a holistic view of your sales totals across the two services.

Here’s how to set it up:

Activating the e-commerce integration feature

1. First, go to the Shopify Integration page in your Imonggo account’s Settings. Don’t know how to get to Settings? Just click the gear icon on the left side.

This one is the easiest to fulfill. To get the Shopify Store Name, just go to your Shopify account and copy the name of your store as it appears in the browser’s address bar. For example, our test store’s name is faster tech, but it appears as faster-tech on our browser’s address bar.
