Interfacing with Shopify

I’ve got a friend who’s wondering if it’s possible to have a purchase on his Shopify store cause a Game Crafter order to happen behind the scenes.

From what I’ve looked at so far of both services’ APIs, it seems like the only way to make this happen would be to write and run some process that gets orders from the Shopify API and sends appropriate requests to the Game Crafter API.

But I’m hoping that there’s some far simpler solution that I’ve failed to notice.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

No, that's basically it.  One possible way to simplify it would be to have Shopify try to call your TGC interface code when an order is made, instead of polling it all the time.  But that depends on Shopify's API.
