Connecting Shopify to Make

Shopify offers two types of connections:

To connect your Shopify account to Make, follow these steps:

Connecting Shopify using the standard connection type

Use the Shopify connection type by default. If creating the connection causes errors, use the custom or private app connection type.

  1. Insert a Shopify module into a scenario. Under Connection, click Add.

    • The Create a Connection dialog appears.

  2. In the Connection type, select Shopify.

  3. Type a Connection name.

  4. Enter the subdomain of your store.

    • For example, if the URL of your store is, the subdomain to enter in the connection dialog is mystore.

  5. Click Save.

    • The system opens Shopify in a new window. Shopify asks you to log in and install the Make app and approve its access to your store data.

  6. In the Shopify Install dialog, review the privacy and permissions details, and then click Install unlisted app.

Connecting Shopify using a Shopify private or custom app

Use the Shopify (custom or private app) connection type if the standard Shopify connection type does not work for you.

This connection type requires creating a custom app in your Shopify store.

  1. Log in to your Shopify store, click Apps, then click App and sales channel settings.

  2. On the Apps and channels screen, click Develop apps.

  3. Click Allow custom app development, then confirm this action again by clicking Allow custom app development on the next screen.

    • This will allow you to create an API token that you will use when creating the connection in Make.

  4. Click Create an app.

  5. Type an App name, select an App developer, and click Create app.

  6. Click Configuration, then click Configure next to Admin API integration.

  7. On the Admin API integration screen, select scopes (permissions) that represent the actions you will need Make to perform. Then click Save.

  8. Switch to the API credentials tab and under Access tokens, click Install app. In the dialog that appears, confirm the action by clicking Install app.

    • Shopify creates an Admin API access token. Click Reveal token once and copy the token. You will enter this token into Make in the next step.

  9. In Make, add a Shopify module to a scenario. Under Connection, click Add, then fill in the required details shown in the following image.

  10. Click Save.

Use this to connect your Public App created in your Partner Dashboard.

To create an app:

  1. From your Partner Dashboard, click Apps > Create app.

  2. Provide an app name, URL, and Redirect URLs.

  3. Click Create app. You are directed to your app's overview page, where you can view the API key and API secret that you will need for the module's connection configuration.

Connection Type

Shopify (public apps).

Connection name

Enter the name of the connection.


Enter the name of your Shopify domain. If your Shopify store address is, enter "mystore".

Client ID

Enter the API key for the app, as defined in the Partner Dashboard.

Client Secret

Enter the API secret key for the app, as defined in the Partner Dashboard.


Specify needed scopes. If you requested both the read and write access scopes for a resource, then enter only for the write access scope. The read access scope is omitted because it’s implied by the write access scope. For example, if your request included scope=read_orders,write_orders, then check only for the write_orders scope.

See the list of admin scopes.

To establish a private app connection, you need to create a private app to obtain the API Key and Password.

1. Log in to your Shopify administration (https://{yourShopifyDomain}

2. Navigate to Apps > Manage private apps.


3. Click the Create new private app button (61d6b0ca33a38.png).

4. Fill in the required fields, click Save, and Create App.


5. Find the generated API Key and Password in the Admin API section.


6. Go to Make, and open the Make an API Call module's Create a Connection dialog for the Shopify private app.

7. Enter the Domain (if your Shopify online store address is, for example,, enter only "xyz".) and API Key and Password provided in step 5 to the respective fields, and click the Continue button to establish the connection.

The connection has been established. You can set up the private app's Make an API Call module.

Build Shopify Scenarios

After connecting the app, you can perform the following actions:

  • Create an Order

  • Create a Draft Order

    Note: In the output, the Shipping Line field is sometimes empty because the user must have at least one item in the item list that requires shipping.

    If not specified, the item is treated as not requiring shipping, and Shopify ignores Shipping Lines.

Common Issues

Errors: [API] This action requires merchant approval for <XXXX_XXXX> scope

You need to create a new connection with a required scope.

Unfortunately, when you create a new connection, all previously used scopes are removed from your account, and only scopes added in the latest connection are used for all your connections (including the previously created connections).

Include all needed scopes in the new connection.
