Multi-Account Extraction

If you have multiple Shopify accounts and would like to extract the same data from all of them, you can do it via data union.


Data Preview Unavailable

No data preview when you click on Test Data might be caused by an issue with your source configuration. The most common causes are:

  • Date range: Try a smaller date range. You can load the rest of your data afterward via manual data load.
  • Insufficient permissions: Please make sure your authorized account has at least admin-level permissions.

Insufficient Scopes Error

Cannot Access Data: Insufficient Scopes

If you cannot access some of your data, please double-check which permissions you've given to Dataddo. In majority of cases, you will need to add additional permissions to your account.

To gain access to the fulfillmentOrders field (Orders dataset), make sure you give Dataddo at least one of the following scopes:

  • read_assigned_fulfillment_orders
  • read_merchant_managed_fulfillment_orders
  • read_third_party_fulfillment_orders
  • read_marketplace_fulfillment_orders
