Shopify Channel Migration (For StoreHippo)

Shopify Channel Migration

Shopify merchants looking for a smarter and feature-rich alternative to Shopify can easily migrate their B2B, D2C, B2C or any other type of enterprise business to StoreHippo. StoreHippo supports easy and seamless migration from Shopify via its dedicated tool called “ Shopify Channel Migration”.

StoreHippo Channel Migration enables you to seamlessly migrate and sync product/customer data from Shopify to your StoreHippo account.

Migrating to StoreHippo from Shopify can make managing product listings, running promotions and streamlining shipping and fulfilment so much easier. StoreHippo offers a range of built-in tools to help you manage your business easily and helps you stay ahead of the curve.

The step-by-step tutorial allows users to migrate their Shopify store to StoreHippo seamlessly. 

Migrating Shopify Custom App

Step 1. Log in to your Shopify account.

Step 2. On the left dashboard, select the “Apps” tab.

Step 3. On the pop-up that appears, click on the "Apps and Sales Channels" button.

Step 4. Select the "Develop Apps for Your Store" button by scrolling down.

Step 5. Now, click the “Create an app” button.

Step 6. Choose your preferred app name (for e.g. we have chosen “Hippoverse”).

Step 7. Provide the required credentials for the “App developer” field and select the “Create app” button to proceed.

Step 8. Next, click on the “Configure Admin API scopes” button on the “Overview” tab.

Allow StoreHippo access to “read” various data entries (such as Product Listings and Inventory). After this, all Shopify data is configured on the StoreHippo admin panel.

Step 9. On the top-right corner, select the “Install App” button (as shown).

Step 10. After clicking, you will be able to retrieve API credentials (API Key, API Secret Key, and API Access Token).

Point to Remember: Once all API credentials have been revealed, you can only view the “API Access token” once. To re-access the API token again, simply uninstall and reinstall the Shopify custom app. Also, NEVER share your API credentials with anyone.

Migrating your Shopify Business to StoreHippo 

Step 1. Log in to your StoreHippo account.

Step 2. Click on “Channels” on the Dashboard as shown.

Step 3. Click “Shopify” from multiple available channels in the “Integrated Channels” menu.

Step 4. Enter the API credentials in the 'Channel Settings’ section below. Fill in the Channel credentials of your Shopify store as shown here:

Enable the “Import Product” to migrate all products from Shopify to the StoreHippo dashboard.

Step 5. Click on the “Add Channel” button. A new popup will show up. Once your channel is successfully configured, you can review Channel Stats and Channel Records.

Note: Channel stats can be reviewed from your StoreHippo admin panel. This is another way you can ensure that the product migration was successful.

Channel Stats

Channel Records is a repository for product migration statuses. Entities are first recorded into this database and then individually processed. Channel Records can be used to confirm that the product listings have successfully synced between Shopify and Mystore admin panel.

Channel Records

Step 6. Go to Products >> Published. If the product migration is completed successfully, all your Shopify products should now be visible on the screen (as shown).

Products Migrated Successfully

And you’re done! Migrating your entire Shopify catalogue into StoreHippo is that easy. Also, StoreHippo supports multi-channel integration to facilitate product management from multiple Shopify storefronts. 

Important Note: Optimizing your Shopify store on StoreHippo is easy and hassle-free. When adding new products to your Shopify store, you must manually update them in the StoreHippo account to migrate them onto the StoreHippo admin panel.

Also, a product marked as “cancelled” in StoreHippo will also mark “cancelled” in the Shopify channel.
