Here’s a step-by-step guide to setting up your Shopify store on TradeGecko


Step 1 - Connecting TradeGecko and Shopify

If you already have a Shopify account you can simply head to and click the Get App button. You will then be taken through step-by-step to create a new TradeGecko account.

If you do not have a Shopify account we suggest first creating a TradeGecko account here:
Once you have your TradeGecko account set up, you’ll be able to connect a new Shopify account by going to the TradeGecko app store:

After the connection is complete

After the connection is complete, TradeGecko will automatically pull down your existing products from Shopify. Any changes made to products in one system will be synced to the other.

Orders created in Shopify will now be pushed down to TradeGecko as they happen.


Step 2 - Setting up Shopify auto collections to work with TradeGecko products

Shopify allows you to create auto collections and these will assign products to the correct areas of your Shopify store without you having to manually add them into a collection.

Shopify’s auto collections group together products based on conditions so you can specify that you want collection Mens Jeans, for example, to only pull up items that contain the tags ‘Mens’ and ‘Jeans’. Then any product you create in TradeGecko with the tags ‘Mens’ and ‘Jeans’ will show up in that collection.

Step 3 - Publishing TradeGecko products to your Shopify store

By default TradeGecko does not publish newly created products to Shopify. You can publish products to your store by clicking the ‘Publish All’ button which is located in the product detail screen.

Or click into the product variant and tick the ‘Publish to my Shopify store’.

publish this product


Yep that’s really all there is to it. Once you have your TradeGecko account connected to your Shopify account it’s really just a matter of making sure your auto collections are setup correctly in Shopify. Other than that you should be good to go.
