You can now import the ".arigato" workflow file you downloaded into the app.

  1. Open the Arigato Automation app in your Shopify admin.
  2. Visit the "Import & Export" page within the app.
  3. Scroll to bottom and upload your file to import the workflow.

We will set up a workflow that sends the variant image URL, the variant's name, and the product's name to IFTTT, and then IFTTT will send the images to Dropbox.

This example workflow fires on a schedule or in a batch, but you can set it to send when products are updated as well. It then looks through all your variants with images and uploads those images to your Dropbox using IFTTT (If This Then That).

To get started, you will need the Arigato app, as well as a free IFTTT account, and finally a free Dropbox account. In IFTTT, you'll use the Upload to Dropbox event triggered by a generic Webhook trigger. Here's how to set it up.

In the Arigato Automation app, import this workflow (click the download link on this page or find it in the in-app library) and open it up through the Workflows tab. The main workflow should look like this...

And the subworkflow will look like this...

Subworkflow

Open up the action on the subworkflow and you will see that the app sends 3 values to IFTTT along with an event name called upload_to_dropbox.

The app will send the product variant's image URL, the title of the variant, and the products title that goes with the variant in values 1 - 3 respectively. Now, we just need to save this and set up IFTTT and Dropbox.

Head over to Dropbox and make an account if you haven't already. 

Sign up for Dropbox

After that, head over to IFTTT and make a new Applet under your existing account or create a new account.

For the "IF" part, set up a Webhook.

IFTTT webhook part

Enter the event name that was used in the Arigato app. If you didn't make changes it would be "upload_to_dropbox".

And for the "THEN THAT", look for Dropbox.

Choose "Add File from URL"

Add file from URL

For the file URL, click on Add ingredient and select "Value 1". This will be the image URL sent from the Arigato App.

Value 1

Do the same for the file name except use Value 2 instead, and for the folder path, make it, Arigato/Value 3 just to keep your files nicely organized in Dropbox. That will set the folder to be the name of the product, then all the images will be named the product's variants. Then just click create and finish.

Back in the Arigato app, click into your Workflow, enable it and then click the "Run Batch" button at the bottom to set up your batch export.
