Sign Up

First, you'll need to create a Pack account.

Create Your Organization

Once your account is created, you can create an organization within Pack. This is where you'll manage all your storefronts and invite your teammates to collaborate.

Connect Your Shopify Store

After you've created your organization, you can connect your Shopify store to Pack. Once you connect your Shopify account, Pack will automatically sync your products and collections data so you can add them to your storefront.

Connect Your GitHub Repository

Link your GitHub repository to your Pack organization. This is where your storefront code will live.

Connect your Hydrogen Storefront

Create a new Hydrogen storefront on Shopify, and link it to Pack. Or connect an existing Hydrogen storefront to Pack.

Create a Private Custom App on Shopify

In Shopify, create a Custom App with both the Admin and Storefront API enabled.
