How the Integration Works
- Guests are directed to your Shopify store either from your Webstore or from your organization’s website.
- Guests add products to cart and proceed to checkout.
- Shopify prompts your guests to log in.
Note: If you have subscribed to the Shopify Plus plan (which supports single sign-on), the guests are directed to Webstore login. After the guests log in to Webstore, they are then redirected to Shopify to complete the transaction. If you have subscribed to other Shopify plans (which do not support single sign-on), you must use the guest checkout feature of Shopify.
- Guest makes the payment for the product.
- The product inventory gets updated in Zenoti.
- Invoices are created in Zenoti.

What happens after the integration?
After you integrate Zenoti with Shopify, when a guest purchases a product from your Shopify store, the following happens in Zenoti:
- The corresponding product count is reduced from inventory.
For example, the stock levels of a Hair gel in Zenoti is 100 units and a guest, Jennie, has purchased 2 units of Hair gel from the Shopify store. After the invoice is created, the stock level of Hair gel in Zenoti is reduced to 98 units.
- The guest profile is updated with the latest transactions and invoices.
Considering the same example, Jennie’s profile in Zenoti is updated with the invoice generated from the purchase.
- The reports are updated with the purchases made on Shopify - all product reports and Today’s Sales, Sales Invoice, Product Sales, and Invoice Number report.
Note: If you have changed the stock level of a product in the Inventory module of Zenoti, to update Shopify with the latest stock levels, you must log in to Shopify and manually sync the inventory level.
