TikTok Shop Connector by Silk - How to Create a Connection NEW

Welcome to Connector by Silk! Today, we will be teaching you how to create a connection between your Shopify and TikTok Shop stores. This will allow you to easily sync your products to TikTok Shop and enhance your e-commerce experience. Let's get started!

Step 1: Login to the TikTok Shop Connector Portal

To begin, log in to the TikTok Shop Connector portal. If you are new, you can create your account by checking off the provided box and completing the necessary details. Otherwise, log in using your existing credentials.

Step 2: Creating a Connection

Once you have logged in, you will see the connection portal. If you are starting for the first time, this section will be blank. Click on the "Create New Connection" button to proceed.

Next, you will need to provide a name for your connection. You can choose any name you prefer, such as "Shopify Staging to UK." After entering the name, click on the "Next" button.

Now, input the backend Shopify store URL in the designated field. To locate this URL, navigate to the Shopify store's settings, then go to "Domains." Copy the URL and remove the ".myshopify" part, ensuring that you include the "https://" before. Double-check the correctness of the URL and click "Save."

Step 3: Generating API Credentials in Shopify

To establish the connection, you will need to generate three API credentials in Shopify. First, access the Shopify store backend and click on "Apps" and then "Sales Channels." Next, navigate to "Develop Apps" and select "Create an App."

Provide a name for your app and click on "Create App." Proceed to configure the admin API scopes by selecting the required permissions. For "Products," choose both "Read" and "Write." Similarly, select "Read" and "Write" for "Orders" and "Customers." For the remaining options, which are "Shipping," "Locations," and "Returns," simply select them. In total, you should have 12 options selected. Once done, click on "Save."

To continue, navigate to "API Credentials" and click on "Install App." Confirm the installation by clicking on the "Install" button. Note that the API token will only be displayed once, so ensure to capture it by taking a screenshot or copying it safely.

Step 4: Authorization in TikTok Shop Seller Center

In this step, you will authorize the connection with TikTok Shop. Click on "Go to Authorize," and you will be redirected to the TikTok Shop Seller Center. Here, choose your desired region, such as "United Kingdom," and click on the checkbox. Then, click on "Authorize."

Once the authorization is complete, you will be redirected back to the connector portal. Congratulations! You have successfully created the connection between your Shopify and TikTok Shop stores. You can now start syncing your products to TikTok Shop by clicking on the newly created connection.
