Sync customer fields from Shopify

Learn about syncing the correct customer fields and data types from Shopify to contact data fields in Engagement Cloud.


The Shopify connector synchronizes standard contact information, billing and shipping information, tags, notes and some calculated order details for all of your Shopify customers. This information is stored against Engagement Cloud contact data fields. Contact data fields must be created manually and then mapped to your Shopify customer fields that are in your Shopify connector settings. It's important for contact data fields in Engagement Cloud to have the correct data type. If the data type is incorrect, the sync fails.

Avoid overwriting similar data fields for different stores during a sync

We recommend creating and mapping different data fields for each of your stores. For example, if you have a UK and a US store, end each data field with the store region to avoid overwriting the wrong data fields during a sync:

  • UK store:
  • US store:
