How does the Shopify connection work?

We can link the following information from Shopify with Orderchamp:

  1. The stock
  2. The catalog: (short) Title, (short) Description, Price, Product images, SKU & Product variants

Before you get started...
We recommend exporting the products as they are now in Shopify and (if applicable) on Orderchamp to a .csv file. This way you always have a backup!


Request your personal Shopify link

  1. Go to the Orderchamp App Store;
  2. Choose Shopify from the available apps;
  3. Fill out the Google Form;
  4. We do our best to send you your personal installation link within 1-2 working days.

Configure your link

This link will open in your Shopify admin, where you have to give permission to access certain information needed for the app to function. After that, you'd have to grant the access in Orderchamp as well.

After the access has been granted, the installation process leads to the configuration in Combidesk (our partner who built the integration) and asks you to make a few choices:

  1. Decide in the first section whether: we keep the current products in Orderchamp and make changes in the future ('Yes, all changes from now on') or overwrite the current products/create new products in Orderchamp with your complete catalog in Shopify ('Yes, everything please'). If you select 'No', nothing will happen at all;
  2. Indicate which prices you bring to Orderchamp. Do you use B2C prices on your own website? Then choose "Consumer prices", we will place them at the suggested retail price including VAT. Do you use B2B prices? Then choose "Wholesale prices", we will place them at the purchase price excluding VAT;
  3. SKU or Product Identifier: if you don't use own SKU/article numbers in your webshop, you can choose Product Identifier. This is an ID Shopify automatically creates for you whenever you create a product.
  4. Decide whether you want to continuously update content changes in Shopify to Orderchamp. "Do not override", will leave the descriptions and titles as it is, "Override" will override any changes you made in Orderchamp to keep this in sync with the descriptions and titles as set in your Shopify. 
  5. The same settings apply to the product prices and product images.  

Save and activate
Check whether everything is filled in as desired. Click on "Install connection" to start your link. It may take a while if you have a large catalog. If you want to force immediately, you can do this by clicking the right-turning arrow at the link in Combidesk. Then click on "Product adjusted → Product created or changed".

You did it! Your link is live.
