A Segment Source is where the data is being exported into Segment. In this instance, the source of data will be the GrowthPhysics events coming from your Shopify store. We suggest the use of a simple Source Name, such as: Shopify Production.

Now that you have defined a Source that sends data into Segment, you can define a destination where the data should go. This step is optional for our purposes. Our goal is to obtain the write key for the workspace.
We HIGHLY recommend that you set up a behavior analytics destination such as Amplitude or Mixpanel. With our events, you can gain deep data-driven insights into your business. We offer step-by-step tutorials in our blog under Growth App University to get you started with making data-driven decisions.
To add Amplitude as a destination (you will need to also create an Amplitude account), simply type "Amplitude" in the search box and click on the Amplitude card when it appears. See our Amplitude Setup Instructions to complete your setup.
