BlogFeeder® makes it easy for you to import any external blog into your Shopify store. Improve your conversions and Shopify store SEO by keeping both your customers and your content all on the same domain! Choose from an ongoing monthly sync with your other blogs, or use a one-time import to move your posts to Shopify.

____________________________________________________________________________

While Shopify does an awesome job with store management, the Shopify blog can be difficult to use and isn't an ideal blogging platform. Platforms like Tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, and WordPress are easy-to-use, great for blogging & building your brand, and useful for blogging on-the-go, but force customers to leave your site or use multiple sites to learn about you.

Stop sending customers to these external blogs to learn about your company! Use BlogFeeder to have your cake and eat it, too. Instead of sending customers to an external blog, you can pull posts from almost any blogging platform right into your Shopify store's blog and keep them updated. With BlogFeeder, you don't have to choose between easy content marketing and improved sales and SEO.

Squarespace note: Squarespace appears to be currently blocking some of our imports, so we cannot reliably import Squarespace RSS feeds at this time. While existing feeds work, new ones occasionally have issues and are sometimes blocked. We are working on a resolution, but want to note that Squarespace imports may not work as expected. We will update this notice as we learn new details.

What does BlogFeeder do?

BlogFeeder imports blog posts into your Shopify store and frequently checks your blog for new or updated posts. Whenever there is a new or changed post on your blog, that post is imported into your Shopify blog as well. Keep using WordPress, Tumblr, Facebook, Pinterest, or any other platform for easy blogging that can be imported into your Shopify store!


  • NEW: Works just like Shopify - BlogFeeder is embedded into your Shopify admin to easily import and manage your feeds

  • Blog on-the-go with your platform of choice, then BlogFeeder will automatically import those posts into your Shopify blog

  • Keep your blogs synced - BlogFeeder imports old posts, new posts, and checks old posts for updates to make sure your blogs are entirely synced with Shopify

  • Easily import existing posts from any blog with an RSS feed into Shopify - enter the URL we'll automatically find the right feed to use!

  • NEW: Import multiple feeds into any of your Shopify blogs

  • Improve conversions - Keep customers on the same domain as your products: don't send them off to another blog when you can keep them right in your Shopify store

  • Improve store SEO - increase your store's search ranking by providing more content for search engines to index

  • Get outstanding customer service - ShopStorm provides top-notch service for all of our apps

Conversion Benefits

Any time customers leave your site, you run the risk that they won't return. BlogFeeder helps you stop your conversion leaks - keep customers on your site and in the same place that you sell products. Don't risk that they'll visit your external blog and not return.

Having more content on your site also increases trust. When customers know more about your or your store, they can relate and see you as a person or trusted friend.

SEO Benefits

BlogFeeder has recently gone through several upgrades to ensure that you reap as many SEO benefits as possible and completely avoids any duplicate content penalties. When search engines crawl your site, they index content. To improve your search results, you want to ensure that you have as much high-quality content on your site as possible.

Using a blog is one of the best ways to improve your SEO and increase your search engine rankings by ensuring that you have lots of content for search engines to gobble up. Importing your content into your site is a great way of adding more for search engines to find.

NEW: BlogFeeder will now give you maximum control over your SEO options. If you want to keep your external blog public, then you can enable canonical tags. This tells search engines where the content originally comes from so you don't get penalized for having copied or duplicate content on your Shopify blog. The SEO benefit to using content with canonical tags is not as great as original content, but will still give your store an SEO boost since this content is located where your products are.

If you want maximum SEO benefit from BlogFeeder, you can disable canonical tags and use your store as the original source of content. To do this, you should understand how to prevent search engines from finding the content on your external blog by disallowing robots or permanently redirecting your old blog to your Shopify store. We have a couple of tutorials in our app documentation to get you started.

Which Blogs Can I Use?

BlogFeeder can import posts from almost any blog - if you can get an RSS feed for the blog, you can use it! Here's a list of blogs commonly imported with BlogFeeder:


  • WordPress (self-hosted or WordPress.com)

  • Tumblr

  • Pinterest

  • Blogger

  • Medium

  • Facebook (status updates)

  • other Shopify blogs

Squarespace note: Squarespace appears to be currently blocking some of our imports, so we cannot reliably import Squarespace RSS feeds at this time. While existing feeds work, new ones occasionally have issues and are sometimes blocked. We are working on a resolution, but want to note that Squarespace imports may not work as expected.

Please note that BlogFeeder imports as many posts as possible with each of these platforms. However, some platforms do not allow us to import all previous posts. We can do so for WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, and potentially others, but may not be able to import all old posts from other platforms. However, any new posts moving forward will always be imported and synced.

Common Questions


  • Q: Will BlogFeeder import comments too?

  • A: Unfortunately BlogFeeder cannot yet import comments. Shopify has added the ability to create comments programmatically, so we have this on our roadmap. If you'd like to vote for this feature, please let us know!
  • Q: Will my blog look the same when imported?

  • A: You blog will look the same as your Shopify theme, not the original blog source. When BlogFeeder imports your posts, it imports the content, not the style or theme, so that your posts blend in completely with your Shopify site. You can manually create a blog post in Shopify to see what this will look like on your site.
  • Q: Does BlogFeeder import images?

  • A: Shopify does not provide a way to import images or create them for your shop programmatically via the Shopify API, which means that BlogFeeder is not allowed to import your images and they'll refer to your old site, or can be moved to Shopify manually. If you'd like to vote for the ability to move images to your own storage (such as Amazon S3) with BlogFeeder, please get in touch to vote for this feature!

It is convenient to use but it doesn't sync properly leaving blank images and spaces when it displayed on Shopify blog page.

As much time as I don't have to spare and as fast-paced this world is nowadays, it would be nicer if the synchronizing took place instantaneously. Unless I'm missing something? Otherwise pretty straightforward, upload to Tumblr and it shows up on site eventually. Pretty cool, but could synch faster IMO.

Just installed BlogFeeder and it works great - Hope that it will update well better then last time!
