Log-in via external account (not social network)

I am evaluating using Shopify for a client's commerce website. One of the requirements is that customers be able to log in to the website using the account they have created for the client's other mobile application. Customers would then be able to get product recommendations based on data available from this other application. I realize that much of this would need to be built custom, on an external stack, but for the single sign-on aspect, is this at all possible? The closest I have found is Multipass documentation, but that appears to only be available for Shopify+ which is not appropriate for my client.

Has anyone had any luck achieving this in any other way?

The only way to really achieve this is to do it via Multipass. The other alternatives probably include getting users to submit insecure forms and storing passwords in plain-text. Please don't do that.

Wouldn't dream of it. Unfortunately, I don't know that I can justify the price increase to Shopify Plus just for multipass functionality. Is this still available for Enterprise plans?

We don't have Enterprise anymore. It's now called Shopify Plus.
