Storefront Setup

Creating Custom App for your Pack Account

To create a new Storefront in Pack, you need to link your Shopify store to Pack. This is done by creating a Custom App in your Shopify store and linking it to your Pack storefront. After enabling Custom Apps in your store, create and install the Custom App:

Steps to Create and Install a Custom App:

  1. From your Shopify admin, click Settings > Apps and sales channels.
  2. Click Develop apps.
  3. Click Create an app.
  4. In the modal window, enter the App name and select an App developer.
  5. Click Create app.

Configuring Your Custom App Permissions

To ensure Pack functions correctly, configure the following two sets of API scopes:

Admin API Scopes

Pack will use these scopes to synchronize and manage your store's products and assets.

Steps to Configure Admin API Scopes:

  1. In your Custom App, navigate to Configuration.
  2. Click Configure Admin API integration.
  3. Configure the following properties:
    • Files: write_files, read_files
    • Metaobject definitions: write_metaobject_definitions, read_metaobject_definitions
    • Metaobject entries: write_metaobject, read_metaobjects
    • Products: read_products
    • Shopify Markets (optional): read_markets, write_markets
    • Store content: read_content
  4. Verify all scopes are selected and click Save.

Storefront API Scopes

Necessary for the Shopify Storefront API's features, such as Metaobjects, Cart, Customer Account, and Market.

Steps to Configure Storefront API Scopes:

  1. In your Custom App, navigate to Configuration.
  2. Click Configure Storefront API integration.
  3. Configure the following properties:
    • Metaobject entries: unauthenticated_read_metaobjects
  4. Verify all scopes are selected and click Save.

Installing Your Custom App to Shopify and Obtaining API Keys

After configuring your API scopes, the next step is to install the custom app on your Shopify store to acquire your API keys.

Steps to Install Custom App and Obtain API Keys:

  2. Inside the modal window, click Install.
  3. Navigate to API Credentials.
  4. Note down the Admin API access token and Storefront API access token.
  5. Remember, the Admin API access token is displayed only once.

Linking Your Shopify Store to Pack

Once you have successfully installed your new Custom App in Shopify, continue with creating your new Storefront inside Pack Admin.

Steps to Link Shopify Store to Pack:

  1. Navigate to Pack Admin, click on your Storefront and select Create Storefront.
  2. Name your Storefront and click next to continue linking your Shopify Store.
  3. Navigate back to Pack where you started creating your new Storefront.
