Where can I get Shopify API Password?

In order to enable data migration from Shopify, you will need to provide an API Password for your store. So, here is a step-by-step tutorial that will help you to get this information by your own.

1. At first, log in to your store's admin area and go to Apps Menu. Then, scroll down the page and click Manage private apps link.


2. Click Create a New Private App button.


3. Here, enter Title of the app and provide Emergency developer email (The email address used for developer communication regarding your app).
Then, you need to grant the Private app with permissions to enable data interaction with your store. To do this, click on all drop-down menus and change permission status from “No access” to “Read and Write”. Now, click "Review disabled Admin API Permissions".

Then, when more entities are displayed, proceed with changing the permission status from “No access” to “Read and Write” (or "Read Access" if "Read and Write" is unavailable) as illustrated on the screenshot below.

Please note: you may grant permissions only to those entities that participate in migration. However, to ensure an accurate and seamless data transfer, we recommend to set "Read and Write" persmission status (or "Read Access" if "Read and Write" is unavailable) to all the entities available.

After, click Save app.

4. Now, API Password will appear. Click Show , copy the password and paste it into the appropriate field on Migration Wizard.
