See how to run an online store from your Claris FileMaker solution

Have you thought about setting up an online website or business? 

There are lots of e-commerce options for selling merchandise online, and Shopify is just one of the options available to you. Since we have received many questions about Shopify and its compatibility with FileMaker, we created a free video and sample file to get you started with integrating the two to build an online shop from your FileMaker solution.

Check out our video to learn about these topics and more:

  • What is Shopify and how does it work? 
  • Why should you integrate Shopify with FileMaker? 
  • How do you connect your Shopify store with the API?
  • How do you push and pull customer accounts between Shopify and FileMaker?

This video highlights the benefits of integrating these two platforms so that you can easily manage an online business right from FileMaker!

While this sample file will give you the basics, the Shopify API has many additional integration options. If you need help with integration or want to add additional features, our development team can help. 

Visit Productive Computing University and enroll in the FileMaker Features & Free Resources course where you will find this sample file, a variety of tips, and additional tools to help you with your Claris FileMaker development.

If you are brand new to the world of APIs, this is the perfect place to start exploring the possibilities. API stands for Application Programming Interface and is a software intermediary that allows applications, like Calendly and FileMaker, to talk to each other. From QR codes to weather forecasts, APIs let you customize your solution to suit your specific needs. The sample files will show you how to make the initial connection and do a simple pull of data.
