Log in to your Shopify store. Go to Settings.

Then to the Apps and sales channels menu in the left sidebar. And press Develop apps in the top right corner:

If you already have an app, click on the app's name to get the keys.

If you don't have an app yet, you need to create one. Press the Create an app button in the upper right corner.

Name your app and on the next step press the Configure Storefront API scopes:

Then go to the Configuration section. Find the Storefront API configuration and press Edit.

Here you need to grant your app permissions. Allow reading content and product listings reading:

Save this configuration.

Now press the Install app button in the upper right corner.

As soon as the app is installed, in the API credentials section, you will find the Storefront API access token:

You will use this token in the Shopify Feeds generator in RSS Ground.

Press the Authenticate button and enter your Shopify store domain name (without https://), then specify your Storefront API access token.


If you are still using the legacy private Shopify app, click the Use private app credentials option and specify your API key and Password.

And don't forget, you can use the Default settings option to save your credentials, to automatically enter them every time you generate a new Shopify feed:
