Multistore Management

This section provides information on managing multiple stores using the Akeneo App for Shopify.

What is Multistore Management?

Multistore management enables you to synchronize your PIM catalog with multiple Shopify stores. It allows you to customize your configuration (Locale/Channel/Currency/Main category) and attribute mapping for each individual store.


Connect a New Store

Follow these steps to connect to a new store:

  1. In your Akeneo App for Shopify, navigate to the Store list.
  2. Click on Connect a new store. You will be redirected to Shopify.
  3. In Shopify, select the store you want to connect with the app and click on Install app.
  4. Once the app is installed, you will be redirected back to your Akeneo App.


While there is a strict limit of 100 stores that can be connected to your Akeneo App for Shopify, it is essential to consider the impact on performance. We recommend keeping the number of connected stores within a reasonable range and suggest not exceeding 30.


Please note that if you wish to connect more than one store in a row, it is necessary to log out of Shopify after each new store connection.



Reconnect a Store

If the Akeneo App has been uninstalled from a Shopify store, the store will automatically disconnect from the app, and you will no longer have access to it. The connection status in your store list will be marked as Disconnected.

To reconnect a store, follow these steps:

  1. In your App, go to the Store list.
  2. Click on Reconnect. You will be redirected to Shopify.
  3. In Shopify, click on Install app to reconnect the store. Your store will now be reconnected.

Delete a Store

To delete a store from your Akeneo App, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Store list.
  2. Click on Delete store.
  3. Confirm the deletion by clicking on Delete when prompted.


Please exercise caution when deleting a store, as this action cannot be undone.



How to Change Stores?

There are two ways to switch between stores within the Akeneo App for Shopify:

  1. Click on Store list in the header to go back. Alternatively, you can use the back button of your browser.
  2. Use the dropdown list in the header of the app. Selecting a store from the dropdown will automatically redirect you to the Configuration page of the selected store.
