Hi all - I'm a Salesforce admin that has inherited a bit of a messy configuration.
Basically, I need a Salesforce action to trigger the creation of a Shopify product, but also push text data into three metafields in the process. My organisation has Zapier installed but it's not offering any joy in terms of the Shopify metafields.
I've hit a bit of a brickwall, as I'm no developer, I've never worked with Shopify before and the word of APIs feels like a bit of a mire.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated. thanks!
Fellow Salesforce Admin here with a software engineering background. Does your organization already have a Zapier integration working between Salesforce and Shopify? I haven't done exactly what you're trying to do, but I have worked with the Shopify API and I'd be happy to put our heads together and help troubleshoot it. Feel free to private message if you'd like to chat more.
I don't believe Zapier works with Shopify metafields, but if you're not tied to that product, our Mesa app would be up to the task: https://www.getmesa.com/shopify-salesforce-integration/
I recommend hitting the "Request Demo" button so you can get connected with one of our automation experts who can work with you to design a solution and walk you through the steps.
