Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for Shopify to Google Sheets data exports

1. Why can’t I use Zapier for Shopify to Google Sheets data exports?

You may use Zapier for syncing Shopify data to Google Sheets- however, while Zapier is a fantastic workflow automation tool, it isn’t really custom built for reporting or BI purposes. You’ll find Amigo much more user-friendly to export data from Shopify.

2. How to export Shopify data to Google Sheets?

Go to Google Sheets -> Extensions -> Download ‘Amigo Data’ -> Launch Extension -> Import Data from Shopify to Google Sheets.

3. How to combine Shopify data with Google Ads?

To do this manually, you will need to export CSV files from Shopify & Google Ads separately. A better way to do this without any code is to use a report template that combines Shopify & Google Ads data – use this link to set up a combined report for Shopify and Google Ads. Read this guide on how to export Google Ads data to Google Sheets, if you want to export only Google Ads data.

4. Can I combine Shopify PostGreSQL with an integration tool too?

Yes, you will need to create a data pipeline from Shopify to PostGreSQL. Hevodata, Airbyte, and others offer such integrations but are largely geared towards technical users. You can use Amigo’s no-code data pipeline tool to connect Shopify to PostgreSQL. You can reach out to [email protected] and we will get you started immediately.

5. Can I directly export Shopify to GSheets?
You will first need to export it as a CSV file and then upload the CSV file to a Google Sheet.

With Amigo, you can easily combine Shopify order data with Salesforce CRM (Salesforce, Hubspot) or databases (MySQL, PostGreSQL, Snowflake) and marketing data (Google Ads, Facebook Ads). Moreover, once combined, the reports are auto-refreshed when you desire – most customers love setting an auto-refresh every day morning.
