I am exporting my Shopify products to another company GrooveKart and they are asking for my Shopify API Key. Where do I find my key so that I may import it into their app so that I my transfer my products to my store with them?

Hi, @BassManBrian!

My name is Lilith, I'm on the Social Care team at Shopify. I can definitely help with this.

You can generate an API key in your admin. Just be sure you trust the developer that you're giving it to as this is an important key.

Follow the steps below:

1. Go to Apps and scroll down to the bottom and click on Manage private apps.



2. Click the green Enable private app development.



3. Check off all the boxes once you've reviewed the terms and information fully, then click the green button



4. Click on Create private app



5. Fill in the fields and make sure you choose permissions for products and other areas your developer will need
