Connect Shopify to Spotify for Artists

You need to connect your Shopify store to an artist before you can list merch on your artist profile.

Note: You’ll need your Shopify store login info for this.

  1. Log in to artists.spotify.com.
  2. Go to Profile.
  3. Click Merch.
  4. Click LOG IN TO SHOPIFY.
  5. Enter your Shopify store URL and click LINK SHOP.
    Tip: This is the URL in the address bar when you’re on your Shopify store, e.g. “your-store-name.myshopify.com”.
  6. Log in to Shopify, then follow the steps to set up your accounts.
    Note: You’ll get prompted to Add sales channel, accept the terms, and choose the artist you want to link your shop to.

Setting up a multi-artist store

For Shopify accounts selling more than one artist’s merch, you need to set up a multi-artist store.

Note: You’ll need to have connected your Shopify account to Spotify for Artists.

  1. Log in to Shopify.
  2. Choose another artist to add to your roster.
  3. Click Add collection
  4. Select the collection you want and click Add collection.

You can only add one collection per artist. If you want to add the same collection to multiple artists, you need to create a copy of the collection.

If you’re having trouble finding the artists you haven’t added a collection to, click No collection to filter down to just those artists.

Note: You can connect or disconnect as many artists as you like. You can sort, search, and filter your roster. If you add more than five artists, they’ll be stored on additional pages.

Publish merch to Spotify for Artists

Once your Shopify store’s connected, you can publish up to 250 merch items from Shopify to Spotify for Artists. You can then choose up to 3 of these items to show on your artist profile.

  1. Log in to Shopify.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Click Products, then All products.
  4. Choose a product.
    Note: Check the product uses plain text and static images for the description and media (we don’t support videos or text formatting).
  5. Click Manage next to SALES CHANNELS AND APPS.
  6. Make sure Spotify is checked, then click Done.
  7. Click Save at the top of the product page.

If you add more merch to your Shopify store in the future, publish it to Spotify for Artists to list it on your artist profile.

Feature merch on your artist profile

Note: Your merch needs to meet our merch guidelines.

Once your merch is published from Shopify, you can pick up to 3 items to list on your artist profile. You should update these items regularly so fans on Spotify always see your newest items or the items you’re most interested in selling on Spotify.

  1. Log in to artists.spotify.com.
  2. Go to Profile.
  3. Click Merch.
  4. Click Manage item on the merch you want to feature on your profile.
  5. Click the checkbox next to Feature on profile.
  6. Click Done.

Your merch appears on your profile in the order you add it. To re-order merch, uncheck Feature on profile for each item, then feature them again in the order you want.

You can remove merch any time to feature different merch on your artist profile. Out of stock items get automatically removed from your profile.

Associate merch with your releases

Note: Your merch needs to meet our merch guidelines.

Once your merch is published from Shopify, you can associate any item with relevant releases (albums, singles, or EPs). This helps us include your items either on the release’s page on Spotify or in any marketing we do for your release.

  1. Log in to artists.spotify.com.
  2. Go to Profile.
  3. Click Merch.
  4. Click Manage item on the merch you want to associate with a release.
  5. Use the search bar to find the relevant release. Click the correct release to associate with the item. You’ll see associated releases appear below the search bar.
  6. Click Done.

When managing your merch in Spotify for Artists, you’ll see a number on any item you’ve associated with one or more releases. To see which releases you’ve associated with the item, click Manage item.

You can remove an association at any time by clicking Manage item and clicking the X next to the release name.

Disconnecting a Shopify store

You’ll need to disconnect Shopify from Spotify for Artists if you want to:

  • Connect your artist profile to a different Shopify store
  • Have Merchbar merch show on your profile again
  1. Log in to your Shopify store.
  2. Go to Spotify.
  3. Click Disconnect.
