Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows you to set up an online store for your business. Using Shopify, you can customize your online store with personalized themes. The Shopify platform helps sell your product over different platforms such as mobile, web, online marketplaces, and social media.
Shopify Integration Overview
Contentstack’s Experience Extensions offer a variety of ways to integrate third-party applications, such as Shopify, directly into your headless CMS. You can simplify commerce processes, such as displaying products, without ever having to leave your CMS.
Using a Contentstack Custom Field, you can embed and display the products of your Shopify store directly into the CMS environment. This makes it easy for content marketers, publishers, and broadcasters to select and insert Shopify products into their CMS content. Instead of searching for the relevant Shopify products and manually entering the “id” into Contentstack, you can browse through the products in a drop-down menu, thus saving the content manager time and eliminating the potential errors that may arise due to manual data insertion.
