How Do I Link Shopify to My Website?

Last updated on January 12, 2023 @ 4:21 pm

Shopify is one of the most popular ecommerce platforms on the web. If you’re looking to start an online store, Shopify is a great option.

One of the first things you’ll need to do is link your Shopify account to your website. In this article, we’ll show you how to do that.

First, you’ll need to create a Shopify account. You can do this by going to Shopify’s website and clicking on the “Create Your Store” button. Fill out the required information and follow the prompts to create your account.

Once you have a Shopify account, you’ll need to create a Buy Button. This can be done by going to your Shopify admin panel and clicking on “Buy Buttons”.

Click on the “Create Buy Button” button and fill out the required information. Once you’ve created your Buy Button, click on the “Copy code” button. This will give you a piece of code that you’ll need to add to your website.

The next step is to edit your website’s code. You’ll need to paste the code from your Buy Button into your website’s code.

Where you place this code will depend on how your website is built. If you’re using WordPress, you can install the Shopify Buy Button plugin. This will add a new button to your WordPress editor that will allow you to easily insert the Shopify Buy Button code into your posts and pages.

PRO TIP: If you are planning to link your Shopify store to your website, be aware that there are some risks involved. First and foremost, if your website is not properly configured, you could unintentionally redirect customers away from your Shopify store. Additionally, if you do not set up the link correctly, customers may have difficulty finding your store or completing purchases. Finally, be sure to test the link thoroughly before making it live to avoid any potential down time or customer frustration.

If you’re not using WordPress, you’ll need to edit your website’s HTML code directly. The exact steps will vary depending on what platform or framework your website is built on. Once you’ve found where to add the code, paste in the code from your Shopify Buy Button and save your changes.

That’s it! You’ve now successfully linked your Shopify account to your website. Your visitors will now be able to purchase products from your Shopify store directly from your website.


Linking your Shopify account to your website is a fairly simple process.

Just create a Buy Button in your Shopify admin panel and then add the generated code to your website. This can be done with a plugin if you’re using WordPress, or by editing your website’s HTML code directly if you’re not using WordPress. Once the code is added, visitors to your website will be able to purchase products directly from your Shopify store.
