with ShopSync.

Otherwise, follow the easy steps down below to start using ShopSync.

Setup Guide

Overview

Import your Shopify store products and collections to ManyChat.

Select products you want to shop in your flow.

Filter your collections with tags and product types.

Getting Started

Step 1

After completing your subscription purchase, locate the ShopSync license key in the Thank You email we have sent to your email address. If you did not receive an email after purchase, please contact our support team at support@letmetalk.ai.

Keep this license key on hand as you will need it in the next steps.

You will also find in this email your customer ID. DO NOT SHARE THIS WITH ANYONE.

Step 2

Creating a Shopify Private App.

Generate Credentials From The Shopify Admin.

After you enable private app development from the Shopify admin, you need to generate the required credentials from the Shopify admin of the store that you want to connect with your app.

Steps :
  • From your Shopify admin, go to Apps.
  • Click Manage private apps.
  • Click Create private app.
  • In the App details section, enter a name for your private app and a contact email address.

    *Shopify uses the email address to contact the developer if there is an issue with the private app, such as when an API change might break it.
  • In the Admin API section, give Read access to Inventory, Products listings and Products. All 3 are required in order for the app to work.
  • We do not need access to your StoreFront API so you can leave that checkbox unchecked.
  • When you're done, click Save.

The API key and password for your app are now displayed on screen.

After you have the required credentials, the private app can access your store's data.

Copy your new private app PASSWORD and keep it on hand. We will need it in the next steps.

App Setup

Step 3

Locate your myshopify.com domain and keep it on hand. You can find your  domain in your address bar when you are logged in your Shopify Admin Dashboard. It looks something like [your_store_name].myshopify.com.

Step 4

After installing ShopSync in ManyChat, you will find the App Setup form.

Using the information collected above, fill in the input fields with their associated value.

Enter the email used to purchase ShopSync

Click Save.

The app configuration is now complete! However, please read carefully the next steps on how to use the app and the app’s templates.
