Hey, @mosleyy!

 

I'm Aria, a Social Care guru at Shopify.

 

I'd love to help with this but I'm not quite sure what you're trying to achieve. Can you please walk me through your proposed business model and how you need it to work? You mention you want to fetch products from different stores. What sort of stores did you have in mind? We can't allow you to pull data from other people's Shopify stores if that's what you meant. Not everyone is public about the fact they are on Shopify and we treat merchant confidentiality very seriously. If you had something else in mind, please let me know so I can help.

 

Thank you!

No, I didn't mean to fetch products directly from other Shopify stores. I meant that I wanted to fetch products from different ecommerce websites like amazon,ebay etc. but i want to fetch them only when user write a query.

Ah! Now I understand, thank you for clarifying. 

 

There is an app called Amazon Associate Connector that will import products from Amazon to your store and is compatible with Amazon Affiliates. The products would already be on your store though and a customer could search for them using the regular search function on your store. 

 

If you're looking to have a search function only where the products do not appear on your store at all until someone searches for them, you could simply keep the products out of your menus and storefront so that the only way they can be found is through search. 

 

We have an eBay channel and there are lots of apps that allow you to import products from eBay but I'm not aware of one that works with eBay affiliates. You may need to hire a Shopify Expert for that one. 

 

Does that help?

Hi Aria, thank you for your reply. The Amazon Associate Connector is exactly the app I was looking for! It's unbelievable how simple Shopify makes it to have such complex functionality. Thanks

I'm so glad that one will work for you. Yes, I'm constantly amazed by the talent of some of our third-party app developers. 

 

What other tools were you thinking of to get your business up and running?
