When Shopify switch to cursor based pagination we needed an easy way to connect our Power BI reports to Shopify and this app helped us do that. Easy to use and the data layer user interface makes sense. Developer keeps it up to date with Shopify API changes. Be aware that this app has a scheduler for refreshing the data sources so just because you refresh the Power BI report doesn't mean the data source refreshed, but I can't fault the developer for that.

App works great. Be nice if there was additional documentation to help determine what fields i should pull in for orders though. Pulling in all of them can cause performance issues for large datasets. Once I narrowed it down everything worked well.

Great support team. Everything you could possibly need in a connector. This has been a huge help in automating what used to be a manual process.

So far this app has been really good for us. Our financial controller was doing all kinds of reconciliations with Shopify manually, and I was able to replicate her large spreadsheet with the click of a button. The only drawback I have noticed is the inability to get actual shipping charges. The customer may get free shipping, but we still have to pay for a shipping label. I have no way to account for my label costs to get true profitability. Other tools we have used have access to this field so I hope the PBI Connector can eventually get it.
