We are looking into ways to integrate shopify store into our web and app experience, basically a single sign on experience with our own user credential.
We did look into using multipass, while it would work if the customer is coming from our web/app into the shopify store but it does not solve the problem when the customer landed on the shopify store first and try to create the account in shopify then we may end up with 2 accounts with login credential.
Would a private app serve the purpose? allow user to create account and login via our own user management api?
or is there other ways to do it ?
yes we thought about doing that bascially build our own store front with shopify backed product and checkout experience but were debating if it's a good idea to forego the benefit of shopify store front and the possibility of using the app in the store.
