USE CASE 4:  Single Sign On into Shopify Store via multiple Identity Providers and access to specific pages, products or collection based on logged in user’s Identity Provider:

    There’s a Shopify Store and you have clients whose end-users are stored in multiple identity Providers. Client A users are stored in OKTA and Client B users are stored in AWS Cognito. All end-users from Multiple Identity Provider can perform SSO into Shopify Store and access the store with their existing Identity Provider credentials. Pages and products can be restricted based on which organization's customers are logging in. Only specific pages can be made available for organization A or Client A users and another set of pages or products or collections can be made available for organization B or Client B users after Single Sign-On into Shopify Store.

USE CASE 5:  Restrict access to products, Pages, collection or complete store based on user groups in Identity Provider:

    Consider you have a Shopify store. And the customers of this store are part of some organization. All these users are stored in an Identity provider. Now, these users are categorized into different groups such as employees, managers, administrators, etc. Let’s assume that they are categorized in user groups A, B, and C. All end users from this Identity Provider can perform SSO into your Shopify Store and access the store with their existing Identity Provider credentials. These users are assigned groups A, B, and C in IDP as well. Pages, products, or collections can be restricted based on the groups of the user, who is logging in. Different restrictions can be imposed to make the right content of the Shopify store available to the correct group of users. After the users perform SSO, some parts of the pages, products, collections can be made available to the users of category A, other parts of the pages and products can be made available to the users of category B. Similarly remaining part of the pages or collections can be made available to the category C users.

USE CASE 6:  OTP verification at guest checkout and 2FA authentication:

    When the merchants allow guests to checkout on their storefront they face the problem of fake orders. To tackle this problem Store owners can use one of the two methods mentioned below to prevent fake orders.


    OTP verification at guest checkout - When the user lands on the checkout page, the checkout button can be disabled by default. To enable the checkout button the user will need to do OTP verification. When a guest user lands on the checkout page he is prompted to enter his mobile number by clicking the OTP verification button. After only successful OTP verification, the checkout button will be enabled.

    2FA authentication - Store owners can enable 2FA authentication in their stores. When the user logs in using his email and password then they are prompted for OTP verification on their mobile number. Until the OTP verification is done they cannot access the store. 2FA can also be implemented for OTP over email for an extra layer of security. In this way, fake orders can be avoided by allowing only verified users to access the store.
