How to set up your Shopify Connector (Overview)

Connecting IC Robotics to your Shopify solution is an easy three-step process.

  1. Connect Shopify data to IC Robotics
  2. Create and write your template
  3. Generate texts to Shopify

1. Connect Shopify data to IC Robotics

In order to integrate data from Shopify, you will first need to set up a Custom app in Shopify. On your admin page in Shopify:

Create Custom app (Shopify)

Click on "Settings" in the Shopify admin menu. Then choose "Apps and sales channels". Then at the top, right corner go to "Develop apps" and then clik "Create an app". Create your custom app by giving it a custom app name and choose an app developer from within your company and clik "Create app"

    • Custom app name: Optional.
    • App developer: An employee from your company.

In Configuration of Admin API Scopes you will need to set everything related to 1)“Inventory”,  2)“Products” , and 3)"Product listings" to Read and Write.

Webhook subscriptions should always be set to latest version.

Then save it.

ℹ️ Note: If you want to create collection texts, you will need to check Storefront API (at the "Configuration"-menu at your custom app) and allow read access to"Products" (unauthenticated_read_products_listings).  

You can now install your app, which will give you the all important API Access Token. You will only be able to reveal your Admin API Access Token once, so rember to copy and save it at a secure place.

Now you have an API Access Token available, which you need in order to create the Shopify connector on the IC Robotics platform.

Create Connector (IC Robotics)

Go to Integrations (the burger on the left side of the Home page) and click the "+ Integration" to setup your integration.

In the pop-up you will Choose Connector as the integration type, and then choose Shopify before clicking "Create".

Now you will need to insert your API Access Token from your custom app into the form. The URL is your shop admin URL e.g. “”.

You will also have to insert yout API key from your custom app. You'll find at the same page as the Access Token (at "API Credentials").

Lastly, You will need to decide if you use Shopify Markets.

ℹ️ Tip: You can always edit your integration settings.

You should now have access to all your product data in the IC Robotics app

2. Create and write your template

Now that you have created your Shopify connector, simply create a template and start writing your text. Your template section IDs must match the IDs of the Shopify fields you want to automate. You can find a list of your Shopify fields Id’s here under product properties.

ℹ️ Example:

The standard “Description” field in Shopify has the id “body_html” If you want to automate the “Description” field, you will need to name your template section “body_html”

3. Generate texts to Shopify

In order to generate your text for your products, you will need to Publish your Template and create a webhook. This is easily done on the IC Robotics platform:

Publish Template

Go to Settings -> API and create an API key. Copy the key to your clipboard.

For security reasons, your API Key is only visible in full at the time of creation.

Now go back to your template and Publish it. You can now generate a webhook for your Publication. Simply click the webhook icon on your Publication and insert your API Key. Copy your webhook to clipboard

Now you only need to insert your webhook URL on your Shopify admin page:

Setup webhook

Go to Settings -> Notifications. In the bottom section on the Notifications page, click Create webhook.
Select an event for the webhook to trigger.
We recommend that you create two webhooks with the Product update Event on one and Product creation Event on the other.
You can use the same webhook URL for both Webhooks. (The URL you got from the IC Robotics platform)
The format should be set to JSON and Webhook API version should be set to (Latest).

You are now ready to automatically generate your product descriptions.
