What does the Shopify Connector app do?

This app will:

  • Associate your Shopify customers with PostHog users
  • Create a PostHog user from a Shopify customer if it doesn't exist
  • Create events for every new order

If there is an error while fetching orders, the next run of runEveryMinute() will try to re-read information from where it was previously interrupted.

Using this app requires either PostHog Cloud, or a self-hosted PostHog instance running version 1.30.0 or later.
