Setting up a Shopify Store


  • To allow Stone Edge to get and manage orders from Shopify, you will have to create a Custom App to enable access to your data.
  • The instructions below will show you how to make the Custom App with the correct permissions and what information you need to send to Stone Edge to enable the integration.

NOTE: The Shopify integration was previously made through private apps. As of January 2022, private apps have been depreciated on Shopify. Click HERE for more information.

Generating a Private App within Shopify

  1. Login to the Shopify administrative section of your website.
  2. Click on the Apps section on the side menu.

  1. The search bar on the top will fill; click “App and sales channel settings.”
  2. Click “Develop Apps” in the top-right corner.
  3. Select “Create an App” on the top right.
  4. Name your Custom App.  You can name it whatever you like.  We recommend “StoneEdge” so that it’s recognizable.
  5. Choose your App Developer. The screenshot below shows “Test” as the developer. We recommend your business email.
  6. You will be forwarded to the “Overview” page of “App Development.”
  7. Click “Configuration” in the menu next to “Overview.”
  8. On the Configuration tab, click “Configure” next to “Admin API integration.”
  9. We need to give permissions to the Custom App. Using the scroll bar on the right-hand side, set each to “Read and Write.”

  13. A pop-up will appear asking if you are okay with installing the app with the API scopes selected. Click “Install” to agree.
  14. Once installed, you will see “Installed” next to the app name at the top of the page. Installing will give you three codes you need to send to so we can integrate your shopping cart.
  15. Admin API access token.
    1. The access token can only be revealed once and should be secure in a separate location for future access.
    2. API Key
    3. API Secret Key
  16. Once you send the information, you will get a confirmation from Stone Edge when your integration is ready.
  17. Once you receive the email from Stone Edge, please review Setting Up a Connect2Cart Channel – Stone Edge Order Manager
