You can use this account type to connect Shopify Snaps with data sources that use Shopify Basic Auth account. 

The Private apps use Basic HTTP Account type. The private apps are created for a single Shopify store, or a small group of clients. A private app can make authenticated requests to the REST Admin API or the GraphQL Admin API using basic authentication.


Create a Private App in Shopify portal.


  • API versions: Shopify releases new API versions every quarter. Each stable version is supported only for a minimum of 12 months. Part of a Shopify API is deprecated if it becomes unnecessary, unsafe, or outdated. The API’s are marked as deprecated when they are removed in a newer version of the API. The deprecation is then retroactively applied to previous stable versions of the API.
  • API Rate Limit: All Shopify APIs are rate-limited. Shopify uses various strategies to enforce rate limits, such as Calculated query cost, Request-based limit, and Time-based limit. 
    Shopify Snap Pack uses admin APIs, which are applicable for Request-based limit. If the APIs cross the rate limit, the Snap fails.
