Hello everyone, i'm building a new store and trying to sync store with an external source, i also created a Private App on the store and give all permission write/read to the App. The issue is that when i try to do a test GET request ( for example for get detail of a product ) from the browser where i'm logged in on shopify the GET request work, but if i try with Postman, from my php app, or simply from another browser shopify ask me credentials.

I also checked many times the API credentials and password and are correct but i still get same error.


The GET url that i'm trying is:




APIUSER and APISECRET are the credentials on the attached screen.

What's wrong? 


Why? What's wrong?

Hi there!

I would recommend reviewing this documentation about using Access Tokens for Admin Custom Apps, these have replaced Private Apps.

They will be using the X-Shopify-Access-Token header, instead of the user password method.

Your access token will be revealed to you once when you create and install your custom app.
