Use Rebuy to Upsell your Shopify Collective merchandise!

This innovative feature allows you to partner with other Shopify stores, enabling you to sell each other’s products directly on your platforms. As a retailer, you can seamlessly import complementary products from suppliers and begin selling them immediately—without the need to manage inventory or make upfront commitments. Conversely, as a supplier, you gain the opportunity to be discovered by retailers, set up customized price lists, and share your products for others to sell.

Additionally, if you’re leveraging Shopify Collective, you can enhance your sales strategy by using the Rebuy app to upsell the products you have imported from partner stores. This integration provides a powerful tool to increase your average order value and optimize customer experiences by offering more choices and relevant recommendations.

Set up Guide

Set up Shopify Collective

To begin leveraging the capabilities of Shopify Collective, your first step is to properly set up your stores on Shopify. Follow the detailed guidelines provided in Shopify’s documentation to ensure that your store settings are correctly configured to optimize your participation as either a retailer or supplier.

It’s possible for your business to operate both as a supplier and a retailer, maximizing your flexibility and reach within the Shopify ecosystem.

Configure Rebuy

After successfully setting up your Shopify Collective and ensuring all products are correctly synced and configured, you can proceed to enhance your store's functionality with Rebuy. Here's how you can start setting up your widgets in Rebuy to effectively promote and upsell the products you've imported:

Step 1: Choose Your Widget

Start by deciding which widget you wish to implement in your store. Rebuy offers a variety of widgets, such as smart carts, product recommendations, and dynamic pop-ups. Choose one that best fits your marketing strategy and customer engagement goals.

Step 2: Create Your Data Source Rules

After choosing the appropriate widget for your needs, the next step involves establishing the data source rules that will drive the widget's functionality. There are two primary methods to set up these rules, depending on your strategic needs:

  • Collection-Based Rules: Utilize this approach to display products from specific vendors with whom you've partnered through Shopify Collective. Simply search for and select the vendor in question. This method ensures that the widget will showcase a curated list of products directly associated with the selected vendor, streamlining the integration between your store and your partners.

  • Product-Specific Rules: For more granular control over the products displayed by the widget, opt for product-specific rules. This option allows you to handpick individual products to feature, providing flexibility in how you promote and highlight items within your store.

You must set up your collections in Shopify to something unique if you want to use the collections based rules.

Once you have the data source rules and widget set up, make sure you install it and you will be displaying your partner's products!


Q: Why am I not seeing my Shopify Collective products or collections in the data source rules?
A: If you are experiencing issues where your Shopify Collective products or collections are not appearing in the data source rules within Rebuy, the problem is likely related to a synchronization issue. Here are the steps you should take to resolve this:

  1. Initiate a Resync with Rebuy: Often, a simple resync can resolve discrepancies between Shopify and Rebuy. In Rebuy, navigate to the settings and status section where you can find options to resync or refresh your data connection with Shopify. Start the resync process and allow some time for the systems to align.

  2. Issues with Product Lineup Across Shopify Stores: If the synchronization issue extends to how products are aligned between your two Shopify stores (e.g., as a supplier and retailer in Shopify Collective), this might be beyond Rebuy's control. In this scenario:

    1. Contact Shopify Support: Reach out to Shopify's customer support team for assistance. They can provide guidance and help troubleshoot issues related to product synchronization between your Shopify stores.
