2. Shopify Integration
  3. Getting Started- Creating Custom App

How do I set up a private Shopify app?

To integrate with Wolf & Badger, use the Shopify setup page:

  • The shop name comes from your shop admin page URL. If your admin page is at https://myshopname.myshopify.com, your shop name is myshopname. For additional help, refer to this article.
  • The API key comes from the API credentials page (see below).
  • The Token is the Admin API access token (see below). 
  • Please ensure you save your API Key and token.


Go to your shop admin URL and click “Apps” on the menu on the left.

When the “Apps” page appears, scroll to the bottom and click “Develop apps for your store”.

To integrate with Wolf & Badger you will need the Admin API access token, the API key, and your shop name.


Click “Reveal token once”. Note that this does what it says and you will not get another chance to see this token, so copy and paste it somewhere secure.
