Shopify Flow

To use Shopify Flow at the store level, download the Flow app from the Shopify App store.

To create these automations, you choose triggers, conditions, and actions.

Lists components of a workflow, describes them, and provides examples.
Workflow component Description Example
Trigger A trigger is an event that starts a workflow, and can be something that happens in your store or in an app. A new order is created in your online store.
Condition A condition determines whether an action will be taken, based on the conditions that you set. A condition is set to check whether the total amount paid for the order is over $200.
Action An action is a change that's made to your store or in an app if the condition is met, and ends the workflow. If the total amount paid for the order is over $200, then a tag is added to the customer account that placed the order.

Flow at the organization level

If you have Flow organization-level access, then you can perform the following actions across all the stores in an organization with Flow:

  • create and edit workflows
  • enable workflows in stores without needing to install the Flow app
  • copy workflows directly from one store to another

This access lets users manage workflows for any store, without needing to log in to each store individually.

If you want to give users access to Flow for a specific store only, then you can install the Flow app in that store and grant them store-level access to the app, rather than organization-level access to Flow.

Because Flow is available at the organization level, uninstalling the Flow app on a specific store doesn't automatically disable workflows for that store. To stop workflows from running on a specific store, you need to turn off these workflows manually. You can do this in either your Shopify admin using the Flow app before uninstalling the app, or in the Shopify organization admin on the Flow page.
