Built for Synchronization

This service is designed to help anyone continuously export (i.e. "sync") data from Shopify.

If you only need to export your data one time, check the website of Shopify to see if their service offers a one-time export feature natively. Sometimes a Data Source's native export feature may provide not as much data as its API does, in which case Flatly is the solution.

Additional Information

Flatly uses official API channels to provide an integration with Shopify.
Shopify is a complete commerce platform that lets you start, grow, and manage a business.
Metafields and Metaobjects

Some of the Shopify data sets Flatly offers include metafields and metaobjects automatically blended in with each parent data set (example: Orders-Last X Days+MetaFields). Since these metas can contain nested data, Flatly outputs these data sets in a left-joined format. The parent to each meta has its fields repeated in each row, whereas each meta is unique to each row. The labels from each meta are presented as column headings, to make the data intelligible for human users.

A non-left-joined option (high column count) is available as well. First, experiment with the existing Flatly Shopify data sets and check if your business intelligence platform can properly relate repeated parents to unique metas without any additional setup. Reach out to Flatly Support for more details.


Flatly's access to Plaid and Plaid's downstream connected financial institutions is read-only access to text. It is limited to account data (words, numbers, dates). It does not include any money-movement, transfer capabilities or account holder profiles/identities.

Plaid alone interfaces directly with financial institutions, caches data from those institutions on Plaid infrastructure, and then makes the appropriate scoped subset of that data available to partners like Flatly using secure connections called client libraries.


Flatly provisions and manages its own App Folder in Google Drive, which contains Google Sheets files, CSV files or XLSX files refreshed by Flatly. Flatly only has access to this one folder. This folder is like an isolated container that you can move anywhere inside your Google Drive, share with members of your team or link to using Google Sheets scripting. Unlike other apps, Flatly does not request overly broad access to all folders, files and sheets in your Google Drive.

Flatly also requests your Google Account email address, to help you keep track of which Google Drive (belonging to which Google Account) you have shared in certain sync jobs in Flatly.

Google Data Studio reads Google Sheets files in Google Drive directly. Google Drive can sync flat files to the desktop automatically.
