Millions of businesses and entrepreneurs use Shopify to sell, ship, and process payments. From household brands, to solo craftsmakers, Shopify offers sellers of all backgrounds the e-commerce infrastructure they need to scale up quickly and ensure customer retention.

With built-in reporting capabilities, Shopify enables businesses to develop analytics on everything from inventory to average order size. However, many Shopify store owners still prefer the flexibility and versatility of Google Sheets to perform data analysis.

However, Shopify can’t directly import data into Google Sheets. Store owners who want to analyze their Shopify data in Google Sheets must combine copy-pasting, CSV exports, and unstable 3rd party integrations. 

So perhaps it’s no surprise that our customers clamored for a Google Sheets Shopify connector. Your wish is our command: starting today, you can use our free Google Sheets Shopify connector.

Here’s an overview of how to set up the connector, along with real use cases we’ve gathered from our customers. Also, watch the tutorial below for a step-by-step video guide on how to connect Shopify to Google Sheets.
