Getting Started

Start by selecting which Purple Dot integration you need.

Add it to your Shopify store by install. You will be guided through 4 Getting Started steps. There is no engineering required and the rest of these docs are not relevant.

If the Platform integration is the best solution for you, please do not install the app as this will create duplicate accounts.

Instead, start by signing up to Purple Dot as a Merchant. If you don't have a Merchant Account yet (or you have one but it is via a Shopify App install), send us an email at and we'll get you set up.

Once you have your account, you can set up the Platform Integration by following these steps:

  1. Sign in to the Merchant Portal with your email. This is where you manage your Waitlists, pre-orders and configure the integration. You can also add more team members there.

  2. Connect your Shopify store and import your store's inventory. Purple Dot needs to import your products and create orders in your store.

  3. Integrate Purple Dot with your storefront, replacing the Add to Cart button for products that are on pre-order.

  4. Configure email styling, shipping rates and taxes in your Merchant Portal.

  5. Connect your bank account to receive payouts from Purple Dot on your pre-order sales. To do this, use our Stripe onboarding flow in the Balance section of the Merchant Portal.

Once you've completed those steps, you can test your integration and launch it!
