Hi there @lauren-randr!
Don here from Shopify.
I just wanted to let you know I have moved your query here to our API forums, as this will be the best place to get info on this.
This is due to the fact that we're not able to provide developer-level support ourselves, so directing your question to this forum would be your best chance at getting an informed response.
Our developers and Partners monitor and respond to these threads, so hopefully, you'll get the info you need from your fellow Community members here.
All the best!
I'm Timmy from LitExtension - the world-leading shopping cart migration expert. In order to get the API, please follow the following steps:
In App Details section: Enter your private app name and email
In Admin API section: Set all the assess level permission to “Read and write”.
Remember to click “Reviewed disable API permissions” to expand the full list permission and then set those levels, too.
You can follow these instructions for getting a Shopify API Password. Plus, you can also try LitExtension's migration app called LitExtension Store Migration on Shopify marketplace. We provide totally free 24/7 support so feel free to contact us if you need further support.
Hope it’s useful.
When you creating a new Private app, you need to grant this app with permissions to enable data interaction with your store.
Actually, you may grant permissions only to those entities that engage in the migration process. However, to ensure your data transfer accurately and seamlessly, it's highly recommended to set "Read and Write" permission status (or "Read Access" if "Read and Write" is unavailable) to all the entities available.
You're welcome. If you have any questions related to your migration experience, feel free to ask me. I will support you dedicatedly and timely.
