Creating a Private App

Overview

One of the first things we do for Shopify Integration Projects is to create a private app. This article will briefly go over what this means, and what it has to do with you, the client.

What's a Private App?

If you've looked into some of the other information we've gathered for you about onboarding, you may have seen something about installing an integrator. The private app we're setting up in this step is essentially the Shopify equivalent of this integrator; it's what keeps your data flowing between Shopify, your POS system, and the Modern Retail Admin Panel.

What do I need to do?

Nothing yet! Once we've set up our private app you'll need to send us your shopify store name, and then later grant us access to your shopify store. Look elsewhere in the onboarding process to learn more about these steps.

If you have further questions about any of this, please feel free to get in touch with your project manager.
