Getting Started

Start by selecting which Purple Dot product you need.
If you selected the Shopify app, add it to your Shopify store and it will guide you through 4 simple getting started steps. There is no engineering required and the rest of these docs are not relevant.
Platform integration is unrelated to our Shopify app so please do not install the app. 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 related to our Shopify App, send us an email at [email protected] and we'll get you set up.
Once you've got your account, you can set up the Platform Integration by following these steps:
  1. 1.
    Sign in to the Merchant Portal with your email. Merchant Portal is where you manage your waitlists, pre-orders and configure the integration. You can also add more team members there.
  2. 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. 3.
    Integrate Purple Dot with your storefront, replacing the Add to Cart button for pre-order products.
  4. 4.
    Configure email styling, shipping rates and taxes in your Merchant Portal.
  5. 5.
    Connect your bank account to receive payouts from Purple Dot. You can do this using 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!
