I'm new to the shopify world. We are having a website creating with netministry. For an another area of business our site has a store front that we are going to use. My developer said that he could link the shopify to the store if it was possible because they dont have the APP integration capabilities.
Does Shopify have a link for the purpose of integrating into another website??
Nick here from Shopify. Great question.
There are a couple of ways you can go about this if you like. Let's take a look into them below:
Do you feel like either one of these options could work for what you're looking to do?
All the best, Nick
Hi Nick thank you
No need to apologize for the questions, that's what we're here for.
The Buy Button is essentially adding an "Add to cart" button for a product on a non-Shopify hosted website. It will look something similar to the screenshot below:
To purchase or access a Buy Button, you would do this through your store admin by taking the following steps:
+button beside the Sales channels heading.
Shopify has a great guide for this going into detail which you can see here.
When you mention the below: Can I ask where you have your website hosted? Any Shopify store can integrate apps such as Printify etc, so I am guessing you are hosted somewhere else.
Now, my overall problem that got me to this point was that my website cant integrate apps so what about the printify app and others?Do I just create completely separate Shopify store just like normal and use the buy button and it adds my entire Shopify site to my other webpage?
To use the Buy Button you will need to create a Shopify account but not necessarily the actual front-facing website aspect of it. If you want to go down the route of using a re-direct link to a full store, then I would suggest creating one, but if you are just using the Buy Button, you would mainly just need to add the products to your admin and then connect the Buy Button to the website you want. Shopify also has a guide for creating Buy Buttons which might shed some more light on this for you here.
