Installing the Candid Shopify App is the easiest way to connect the products in your shopify store to your candid collection.


Flow #1: From Candid -> Shopify

  1. Create an account with Candid
  2. Create a new collection to track social media content
  3. From your collection dashboard, select Administration Tools and scroll down to the Shopify Store section
  4. Type in the name of your store and click Connect


Flow #2: From Shopify -> Candid


  1. From the Shopify App Store, select Candid
  2. Type in the name of your store and click Connect
  3. Create an account with Candid
  4. Create a new collection to track social media content
  5. From your collection dashboard, select Administration Tools and scroll down to the Shopify Store section
  6. You should see your store pre-populated from Step #2, click Connect to complete setup


Once connected, all of your products from the Shopify store will be automatically imported as 'Mapping Tags' and will be in the 'Map To' field under each media in the current collection. Any changes you make to the Mapping Tags from here on in (e.g., to edit CTAs, add variations, or edit product images) will only impact your Candid displays and not the original Shopify Product. To re-import your product catalog at any point in the future, simply select the Connect option under Administration Tools -> Shopify Store.


About Permissions


As of May 14, 2015, the Candid App only synchronizes your product catalog. However, the other permissions allow us to over time increasingly automate other customizations to your store that enable a closer integration with Candid.
