Please provide inputs on the following questions.

 

  • The Analytics API webpage says that, "To access the Analytics API, a shop must have the advanced report builder feature, included in the Advanced Shopify plan and up. In the API, this feature is called reports_editing." Does this mean that if an app uses the Analytics API then only the merchants having the advanced report builder feature can use the app? What are the constraints associated with using the Analytics API? 
  • Can we query Analytics API for a given timeframe using timestamps?

What the documentation means re: access to the analytics API is that if you attempt to make a ShopifyQL query or API request against the reports API on a shop that is not qualified (is not on the Advanced Shopify plan or higher), then the request will fail. They can still use your app, just the part of it that interacts with the analytics API will not work.

 

You can make queries with ShopifyQL using time stamps as shown here.

 

Cheers.

Thanks for the response.

 

Few follow-up questions:

  • Do you have  data around the percentage of shops  which have the Advanced Shopify plan in different regions?
  • Is there a way other than Analytics API to get the page hits and unit sales on a product page?
