What staff permissions are required to install Shogun for Shopify?

Need to update permissions to use the Shopify Metafield element? See below.

To ensure your staff is able to download the Shogun app to your Shopify store, the following staff permissions will need to be selected on their store profile:

  • Orders

  • Products

  • Discounts

  • Themes

  • Blog posts and pages

  • Manage Settings

  • Manage and install apps and channels

These are the minimum requirements for their staff account to download Shogun, but more can be selected and it will not effect the app install.

Please note: If you'd like your staff member to have the ability to upgrade and select a paid plan on Shogun, the "Approve app charges" permission will also need to be enabled.
