    Hi -
    I have been told some time ago, (and there have been other rumours)
    that a Shopify app is in the works.
    In fact, I believe the Spring and Wonder website is a demo of it in action !

    So... it would be really valuable to know how much longer we are likely to wait before we get access to it.
    (Yes I ticked the beta testers box).

    Pleeeeeeze tell us if it most likely will be soon, later this year, or not till next year ?

    Do I plan for integration before Christmas ?
    Or do I give up on SW ever becoming a viable supplier for external sales ?

    Okay I guess this is not as important to everyone as I thought it might be.
    I will send it as a question to support and see if they can give me any hints of a timeline.

    I doubt you'll see anything but a vague, nebulous answer from Shapeways personnel, because future projections can be used against your company in court if you fall behind the schedule. And the rest of us would just be pulling guesses from thin air.

    Whoo hooo ! Yippeee !
    That's so exciting hear! Just as I have my Shopify store ready to open the Shapeways integration app is happening !

    I presume we can learn some things about the app functionality by looking at the Spring and Wonder store functionality.

    @MitchelUetten - Can you confirm that the app will be free ? (As it is for other print on demand services such as Rageon and Printful).

    What exactly can be achieved with this app:
    - link between shopify shop and SW products
    - automatic order forward from shopify to SW
    - shipping via SW

    is that picture correct?

    If I'm thinking forward would it then be possible to create a chain to amazon (via shopify sales channel app) shopify and SW?
    (or are there any ideas to have an easy integration between Amazon and SW also)

    They have this mentioned on the SELL page linked from the main page. I believe you need to talk to their sales team to learn more re Amazon and other site potentials. Also it looks like they are going to charge a 5% fee for the Shopify API linkage. Not sure if that's based on production or sales cost. It strikes me that for every extra thing they do, such as custom packaging, etc. they're going to add another percentage charge to a sale. Might be a good idea for some existing shops. I assume that to learn anything significant you would need to submit a filled out form with all your info and talk to them using a double secret handshake.
