To set up Athlete to sync your Etsy orders with Shopify, as well as customers and shipments, follow the steps below.
Step One: Install Athlete from the Shopify App Store.
Athlete won't fetch any orders from Etsy until it is connected to your Etsy shop.
Step Two: Connect Athlete to your Etsy shop
Click Connect Etsy Shop to authorise Athlete for Etsy access. This will take you through to Etsy's app approval flow.
Athlete will now fetch orders from Etsy, but will not load them onto Shopify until you enable order syncing.
Step Three: Enable Order Sync
Click Enable Order Syncing. Athlete will load all open and future Etsy orders to Shopify.

Does Athlete require my products to have SKUs on Etsy and Shopify?
Good news! SKUs are not required for order syncing to work. And if you do have SKUs, Athlete will use them.
When Athlete syncs an order to Shopify, it looks for SKUs on the Etsy listings and matches them to Shopify products.
When this match is found, the items on that Shopify order are linked to your Shopify products.
When this match is not found, the Shopify order is loaded but the items on that order are not linked to Shopify products. This means these orders can't update inventory, and may not work with other integrations such as dropshipping apps. To resolve this, you should update the product to have matching SKUs on both marketplaces. Subsequent orders for that Etsy listing will then be successfully linked to the Shopify product.

Is Athlete compliant with GDPR and general data security standards?
