Assigning Products to Web Channels


When creating products on your Shopify site, almost as important as enabling those products is assigning them to a web channel(s). In this article, we'll talk about how we handle web channels for newly created products.

Web Channels

The most important thing to note is that you will have to manually assign a web channel to a product, it won't happen automatically. This is because Shopify does not permit private apps, like the Modern Retail integrator, to have the necessary permissions to configure automatic assignation of web channels.

Modern Retail is monitoring new Shopify updates to see if this is likely to change in the future, and will let our Shopify clients know if this becomes an option. If you have any additional questions, please feel free to submit a support request.
