Manage Shopify ScriptsAnchor link to section titled "Manage Shopify Scripts"
If you're using Shopify Scripts, then you might need to unpublish and republish them and ensure that they're available to the Storefront API.
Update Meta & Google product feedsAnchor link to section titled "Update Meta & Google product feeds"
If you're using Meta & Google apps for your product feeds for advertising, then you'll need to update those catalogs to use your Hydrogen storefront's domain. You can do this either using a third-party tool instead of the standard Facebook and Google sales channels, or by setting up feed rules. For more information, refer to Facebook, and Google documentation.
