Setting up your marketplaces with Avalara Extractor for Shopify


Avalara has recently made updates to Avalara Extractor for Shopify and will be releasing a new version on January 6, 2022. This update will bring in transactions from marketplace(s) integrated with your Shopify store in addition to the transactions created on Shopify only.

If you’re a seller on Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Etsy, and similar marketplaces, you’ll be required to disable your existing extractor and configure a new extractor. Use the calendar date from which you’d want to pull in the transactions aggregated from marketplaces integrated or connected with your Shopify store.

See the instructions below to configure your new extractor.


Step 1: Find the sales channel IDs in your store 

  1. Log in to your store, and select Orders > Filter by > App. (1, 2, and 3 in the image below.)
  2. Under Select value, select the channels where your orders are coming from.  (4 in the image below.)
  3.  As you select your channels, in the URL, you will see sales channel IDs appear. (5 in the image below.)You will use these IDs in step 2.
