This document explains what is needed to setup access to Shopify and install the Shopify connector which uses API key authentication.

https://example.myshopify.com/admin then the hostname is
example.myshopify.com. Shopify's documentation on domains can be found here.

When you create a custom app, ensure that you set the correct Admin API Permissions for the webhooks your connector will use. The table below contains a list of webhooks and the required scopes:

You can find the admin API access token in the newly created custom app under API credentials > Admin API access token. You can only view the token once before it's permanently hidden. To get a new token, you need to uninstall and reinstall the app to your store. For more information, see Shopify's documentation on rotating API credentials.
