How to connect Imonggo to Shopify
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:
1. First, go to the E-Commerce Integration page in your Imonggo account’s Settings. Don’t know how to get to Settings? Just click the gear icon on the upper right.
2. Add a checkmark beside Sync your order payments and products with Imonggo and click the Save button.
As you can see above, there are five fields you need to fill up. Click the tabs below to learn how to get these information. Please accomplish the tabs in order.
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.
Just copy how it appears on the URL (do not include myshopify.com or the rest of the URL) and paste it onto the Shopify Store Name field in Imonggo.
