What is MYOB?
MYOB, or Mind Your Own Business, is a New Zealand-based bookkeeping, tax, and accounting software company. This cloud accounting software offers a range of products and has a tool for virtually every business, some popular options including:
- MYOB Essentials is a browser-based software for smaller businesses looking for a simple way to manage transactions.
- MYOB AccountRight allows users to manage inventory, expenses, and payroll both online and offline. This tier was designed for small to medium-sized businesses who are looking for a versatile service.
- MYOB EXO is an enterprise solution that spans beyond accounting, allowing someone to control finance, payroll, CRM, and manufacturing and service management. This product aims to be your business's central dashboard and is the only MYOB software that directly integrates with Shopify.
Despite the multitude of services MYOB offers, their core goal at every level is to simplify accounting. This is abundantly clear in the user interface; they make bookkeeping easy through a variety of graphs and charts, and track numbers for tax, expenses, payroll and inventory. The simplicity they offer has made them extremely popular among Shopify users, who applaud the service for its intuitive nature. However, basic plans don't integrate with Shopify, and popular software Onesaas, has stopped supporting MYOB. So... how do you connect your Shopify store with MYOB?
How do I use MYOB in Shopify?
The easiest way to incorporate MYOB in your Shopify store would be to use integrations. How to Leverage Integrations as your Shopify Store Grows provides a fantastic introduction to integrations, and how to best use them. Here are some ways to integrate MYOB in your Shopify store.

Celigo's integrator.io iPaaS offers a myriad of services for the regular business owner. They offer hundreds of pre-built integrations, allowing someone with no technical experience to build automation for their business. The software has been applauded for its preview and debug abilities, making adding new integrations a simple process.
Their integrator.io platform provides prebuilt connectors for three levels of MYOB: AccountRight, Essentials, and Advanced. The connectors allow you to automatically sync key data with a central dashboard, manage CRM, along with many other features.
While the reviews are overwhelmingly positive, many indicate a learning curve when initially setting up integrators, and state non-developers may struggle on the platform. Continuing, most pre-built connectors have a use-purpose in mind, making it difficult to customize for a specific function.
4. Cdata Software
Cdata is a data-driven software that offers hundreds of versatile connectors for businesses. They integrate directly with Shopify, allowing you to view Bl and analytics in real-time, as well as develop your own integrations. The Cdata software is exceptionally powerful, and business owners can deploy multiple Saas databases onto a server.
The platform connects hundreds of tools to Shopify, including MYOB AccountRight. Cdata Software uses an ODBC (open database connectivity) Driver interface to transfer live data from MYOB AccountRight to various platforms. This allows easier access to write transactions, invoices, sales receipts, and other important data points.
Cdata has an incredible 4.8/5 stars on Capterra, and reviews applaud the program for its simplicity and reliability. However, some point out how the application is not cloud-based and is not very portable. Additionally, uploading data can be time-consuming as there is no built-in method to stagger upload times.
