Keeping track of your referrals, and how they contribute to your bottom line, is important to growing your business.
With that in mind, today we’re launching the addition of transferred stores to the Development stores page of your Partner Dashboard, as well as introducing more detailed information to your Payouts page.
Tracking transferred stores
Traditionally, handing off a development store to a client meant it disappeared from your Development stores page and nestled itself under your Referrals.
Now, with the new transferred stores tab, you can see the full lifecycle of your Shopify projects from a single view — making it easier than ever to track, and access, development stores that you’ve handed over to clients.
As before, transferring a store is simple:
- Click your completed store in the Development stores page.
- Click on Transfer store to client.
- Select the new owner from the dropdown list and your suggested Shopify plan.
- (Optional) Draft a quick message congratulating the merchant on their new Shopify store.
- Click on Transfer store to client to finish the handoff process.
Once your client has picked a plan and added their credit card information, the store will appear in your transferred stores tab as a transferred store that you’ll start earning revenue share on.
It’s that easy.

Want to know exactly how Shopify pays you for your referrals? Not just a total sum, but a comprehensive overview of your different referral activities?
With the newly redesigned Payouts page, you can see exactly how much money you’ve earned from your transferred stores and affiliate link referrals — showing you exactly which part of your monthly payout is from recurring revenue share, and which is from new affiliate bounties.
"Quickly see which stores you’ve transferred to a client, which stores you’ve referred through your affiliate link, and which plan these referrals have chosen."
Quickly see which stores you’ve transferred to a client, which stores you’ve referred through your affiliate link, and which plan these referrals have chosen.
