Does Wave Integrate with Shopify?

Good morning,
I have an online store with Shopify and would like to know if Wave integrates with Shopify for sales? Or do I have to manually input every invoice/sale that goes through on Shopify into Wave? Thank you for your help!

    Hi, @onyva_.

    No, we don't integrate with Shopify. Both Shopify and Wave share a few different features and an integration with one of our competitors is very unlikely.

    You can, however, export your Shopify transactions as a CSV file, which you can then modify to comply with our bank statement upload functionality.

    Here's how to upload a CSV statement to Wave.

    Also, here's a bit of information regarding formatting. The most important part to remember is that Wave can only read statements with 3 columns (Description, Amount and Date).

    Let me know if you need any help with that!

    Hey Alexia, what's the best way to integrate my shopify payouts including the bank fees that they charge? Thanks

    It would be great if integration wasn't very unlikely. Even though there are a few shared features, the ability to effortlessly link one's store to their bookkeeping mechanism would make Wave exponentially more popular among small business owners. I hope this will be considered moving forward, and someone at Wave can continue to bring the topic to meetings. Speaking with other creatives, this is the one huge drawback that keeps them from opening Wave accounts.

    Hi @Stormy,
    Wave is on a journey to make more of its functionality available via APIs, so in due course you may see a specialist Shopify add-on builder creating a mechanism to push data into Wave.
    In the meantime, Zapier offers the ability to create a Sales Transaction in Wave when you make a sale in Shopify.
    This pre-built "Zap" is configured to do exactly this.
    Hope that helps!

    Shopify integration is a must. Zapier only brings in NEW transactions and I see no way to import transactions from the beginning of the year. Are we expected to set up a zap for each and every day of the year to import previous transactions? I see no way to get these transactions into my Wave account. Please advise.

    Hey there @tslife

    You should be able to export a CSV file from your Shopify account by following the steps in This Article. Once you have those you can upload your transactions into our transactions page to your Shopify account by using our CSV Uploader tool!

    Reach out if you're still having troubles with this :smile:

    I am trying to get Zapier to create a Wave INVOICE when I make a Shopify sale, rather than just an entry in my bookkeeping. Any ideas for how to do this? I've tried creating the Zap but I am running into a problem with Zapier taking the items from Shopify and IDing them on Wave. It just can't find the item and gives me the error message:

    Got 500 calling POST https://api.waveapps.com/businesses/96a65730-f6c5-4443-9f13-b7c02cfb9cf6/invoices/, expected 2xx.

    I think maybe it is because the Item ID numbers in Shopify and Wave aren't the same but I have no idea how to reconcile that.

    Thanks,

    Jonathan
