KCC Shopify Integration Guide

Before You Begin

This document is intended to be used as a resource alongside the How To Set Up a Shopify Channel and How To Control Stock Levels On Your Channel videos on our Support Portal which we recommend you watch beforehand.

By default, any channels created in your live system will be activated. If you wish to test your channel integration in your demo system, please contact support@khaoscloud.com asking for your channels to be activated in your demo system.

NOTE: Any Shopify stores created after January 2024 on the basic plan, will not have access to customer information via private apps and therefore we cannot import orders. To use this please use the premium plan.

KCC Channel Setup

Once you have created your channel in KCC, leave the screen open, alternatively if you've already set one up, please open it in edit mode.
You're now ready to continue.

    KCC Channel Setup

    Setting the Credentials Against Your Channel

    The following process links your Shopify Channel in KCC to your Shopify Account.
    1. Enter the Shopify Admin URL for your Shopify Store (this MUST be the configuration address). You will need to add https:// at the beginning of this.
      1. i.e. if you have copied mystore.myshopify.com you enter https://mystore.myshopify.com
    2. Enter the Shop Access Token for your Shopify Store that you saved earlier, it was called the API Access Token.
    3. Set the Download POS Orders dropdown as required.
      1. Do not download – Shopify POS sales orders will not be downloaded into KCC.
      2. Download to generic customer account – POS orders will be downloaded to a generic customer record within KCC, so each order will be created against the generic customer with the customer’s details for each individual order being added as the contact and delivery address information.
      3. Download using customer details if present – If the customer can be matched to an existing KCC customer, the order will be linked to that customer's account. If no match is found, a new customer will be created when the order is downloaded.
    4. Channel Location
      1. This a mandatory field and the available options will be provided by Shopify on the first sync. It possible to have more than 1 stock location within Shopify and guidance for this feature should be sought from Shopify; although having multiple stock locations may, depending on setup, require a separate channel for each.
      2. Please Note: Stock levels will not sync unless this is specified.
    5. Location Import Site - **EPOS only**
      1. The site mapping in the (Global) options Order Types grid will override this value, if different. The intention is to send each Shopify location’s orders to a specific site, if required, by defining channels for each specific Shopify location (as mentioned above).
    6. Only Import Orders For Chosen Location - **EPOS only**
      1. Enabled - KCC will import orders from the Channel Location above.
      2. Disabled - KCC will import orders from ALL Shopify stock locations.
    7. Ignore Financial Status
      1. Enabled -  Unpaid orders will be imported and the user can manually enter payment details for ‘Unpaid’ orders as required.
      2. Disabled - Only ‘Paid’ orders will be imported. 
    8. Send Shipping Notification
      1. Enabled - KCC will send tracking data to Shopify and enables Shopify to email customer with this info.
    9. Click Save Channel.
