Setup Single Sign-On (SSO) Between Two Shopify Stores
You can enable Single Sign-On (SSO) between two Shopify stores by using the Shopify SSO and Shopify
Store as IDP applications, which allows users to log in to one Shopify store using the credentials from the
other Shopify store. One Shopify Store will act as an IDP (Identity Provider), storing all of your user's
credentials, and these credentials will be used to log in to the other Shopify Store, which will act as a Service
Provider (SP). This guide will walk you through the implementation of SSO, which ensures a secure and user-friendly
authentication process across the two Shopify storefronts.
