General help and support
Does the partner activity requirement still apply?
Due to the current impacts of COVID-19, Shopify is pausing the Shopify Partner activity requirement as of March 26, 2020, until further notice. Learn more about the temporary pause.
When does my app need to be updated by?
We know that partners and merchants are making adjustments to continue running their businesses smoothly. That’s why we’ve decided to postpone the April 1 version removal to July 1, 2020. Learn what you need to know by July 1st.
Can I switch my client’s store back to a development store?
No, after you transfer the ownership of a development store to another account, the transfer can’t be reversed. Instead, you can offer alternatives to the merchant, such as lowering their plan, pausing their store, or closing their store. Read more about transferring ownership of a development store.
What do I need to be part of the affiliate program?
The Shopify Affiliate Program includes entrepreneurs, educators, influencers, and content creators who inspire and teach their audience about entrepreneurship with Shopify. The program can accept only a limited number of applicants. Learn more about the requirements you need to apply.
