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.

This workflow fires whenever a new product is created in your Shopify store. It then adds a database value to the product, and sends some information about the product to If This Then That (IFTTT).

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

In the Arigato Automation app, import this workflow and open it up through the Workflows tab. The main workflow should look like this...

Main workflow

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

3 values

The app will send the product Image URL, the title of the product, the products description and the store page URL to the product. In this scenario, value 1 will be used to upload the products image to facebook, value two will state the name of the product and value 3 will be the products description and link.

Head over to Facebook, make and account and a page. 

Facebook Log In

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.

Remember the event name from earlier? This is where we need to type that into IFTTT. The event name that gets called from our Arigato Workflow is upload_to_facebook.

And for the "THEN THAT", look for Facebook. You may need to link your Facebook account to continue if you haven't already.

Back in the Arigato Automation app, now whenever you upload a new product to your Shopify store using the admin panel, your new products will be added to Facebook in an advertising post to your Facebook Page.
