A few weeks ago during the HubSpot product keynote at Inbound 17, a supercharged integration with Shopify was announced.
As developers who work in Shopify and HubSpot on a daily basis, this was an important announcement. Our dual user partners have long after the benefits an integration could provide to their strategies and have had to bootstrap their own solutions.
And as Shopify has become one of the dominant platforms within the ecommerce market, it’s a no brainer that customers of both platforms were asking for a HubSpot integration for Shopify. The platforms together will provide dual users with tools to form a fully integrated inbound strategy.
Benefits of the HubSpot Shopify Integration

How to get started with the integration
The integration is still in BETA stages, though it should be noted that there is currently a HubSpot Shopify integration offered through Groove. This new integration will be native to HubSpot.
As the integration rolls out from limited beta we will update this space with new information.
Ecommerce Bridge framework by HubSpot
