TikTok Shop through Pipe17 has the ability to connect to a multitude of channels - including Shopify. You may find this guide most helpful if you want to sync your orders, or share a catalog across channels with Shopify and TikTok Shop.
As each connector has their own settings, we also highly suggest reading our guide on Getting Started with Shopify, as it will also provide a more in-depth description of how Shopify integrates with Pipe17 in it's entirety.

Configuring your Catalogs for Shopify and TikTok Shop
The main determining factor for TikTok Shop, and how it interacts with Shopify for the catalog - will be which one you want to use as the primary catalog. If you do not have any product data in Shopify, we might suggest pushing the existing TikTok Catalog to Shopify. This means your settings reflected on the TikTok Integration will be pulling, your product - not pushing products to TikTok.
If the products exist in both TikTok, and Shopify - we will be able to match the information using the product SKU. Identical SKU's will be matched, and allow us to sync or fulfill the information correctly.
|It is important that SKU's do not match if they are for DIFFERENT products, as this could cause confusion later down the line and perform in an unexpected manner.
If the SKU's are different across both platforms, we can navigate to the specific product in question (within Pipe17), and manually map the SKU's using the fields at the bottom of the product page, which should look like this:
This field is what we would expect on Shopify's end, however, the same can be done for TikTok if you would like to map it through TikTok. If you the catalog is from a different sales channel completely and needs to be mapped - you can also map BOTH TikTok, and Shopify simultaneously.
Configuring Locations for Shopify and TikTok
If your inventory is already setup for TikTok, you will not have to continue with any further as our system will be able to determine the correct fulfillment through the SKU's.
