Shop Campaigns is a product that includes, at the request of participating Shopify merchants ("Merchant(s)"), Shopify (i) generating and managing ad campaigns promoting your goods or services, including determining timing and different types of ad placements, (ii) in some cases displaying those ad campaigns within Shop ("Offers"), and (iii) in some cases for Merchants who opt in, running those ad campaigns on certain third-party platforms ("Third-Party Platform Ads") (collectively, "Shop Campaigns" or the "Service(s)"). Shopify may determine, in its sole discretion, whether you or your Store are eligible to use the Services.

2. Merchant Obligations

  1. For each Shop Campaign you initiate from within the Shop channel in your Shopify administrative console, you agree to set a Daily Budget and Customer Acquisition Cost information applicable to that Shop Campaign.

  2. You may change the Daily Budget in the Shop channel found in your Shopify Admin at any time during the Term.

  3. You agree to pay Shopify the Customer Acquisition Cost amount for any Attributed Transaction made during the Term, up to the Daily Budget on an individual day. "Attributed Transaction" means a finalized Merchant order through Shop where (i) the Buyer has not previously made a purchase from the same Merchant, according to the Merchant’s Shopify transaction history, or meets other criteria set by the Merchant when initiating a Shop Campaign; and (ii) the Merchant has an active Shop Campaign. Your obligation to pay will continue for as long beyond the Term as is necessary for Shopify to recover any outstanding amount owed.

Merchant expressly agrees that Shopify may withdraw the Customer Acquisition Cost directly from the Merchant’s Shopify Payments account balance.

Amounts not spent on a given day may roll over and be applied to the Daily Budget for subsequent days during the Term; in that case, Shopify may withdraw more than the Daily Budget on such subsequent day.

During this period, Shopify may pause or end the current Shop Campaign and will only pay out once Shopify is able to recover outstanding Customer Acquisition Costs from your Shopify Payments account or as otherwise agreed with Merchant.
