We have a custom build mobile application, and we wanting to integrate with Shopify if we use that for handling commerce on our website. For this to work, we need a way to integrate with Shopify to have a single username/password for users (or just use our existing auth), and we also need a way to see if a given user has a valid subscription. (we will be selling subscriptions via Shopify, and if you are an active subscriber, you will have access to additional app functionality). The application was built with the ionic framework.
Is this sort of integration possible? If so, how would it work?
Does anyone know any examples that our developers can use to implement this integration?
I recommend taking a look at our Mobile Buy SDKs. You can use the SDKs to build Shopify functionality in to your existing app. This will allow you to use your existing authentication process, and build just the Shopify features you need into your application.
