Matching Zip and Shopify Orders

When an order is placed through Shopify, there is an ID called the Payment ID set on the order. You can find this ID in Shopify, in the order Timeline section. Navigate to the Timeline event that says "A $X [currency] was authorized on Zip," then expand the "Information from the gateway" section to reveal the Payment ID.

You will find this Payment ID in the Zip Merchant Portal in the Merchant Reference field.

Shopify does not provide Zip with the Shopify Order ID. You will need the Shopify Payment ID in order to associate Shopify and Zip orders.
