Hey, @Youssefo6!

 

Happy to help get this cleared up! To provide some insight, Shopify charges the monthly subscription in UTC time which can cause a charge to appear earlier than expected. That said, as long as the store has been closed within 72 hours of the invoice generating, then we're happy to provide a refund back to your card. When emailing our support, it can take between 24-48 hours to hear back depending on our ticket load which is why you haven't yet received a response. 

 

Nevertheless, I have gone ahead and followed up with you via email with further information on your account as I'm unable to speak about account specifics in a public forum. 

 

Chat soon!

Hello, 

 

I was testing shopify and just wanted to learn how it worked. I was charged the Sept. 14th my $29.00 subscription. Today Sep 16th I cancelled my account. I had intended to do so before the 14th but it as the weekend. Will shopify, refund my monthly subscription? Help!

We're happy to provide a refund for the monthly subscription so long as the store is closed within 72 hours of the invoice generating. If you haven't yet closed the store, you'll want to do so by going to Settings/Account OR Settings/Plans and Permissions (whichever applies to you) and select "Close Store" at the bottom of the page. This will close your store, remove you from active billing, and restrict all access to the account itself. We will need the account to be closed before a refund request can be considered. 

 

With that all said, I've shipped you an email to help get this request completed!

Hello Peter, I was just charged for the shopify monthly subscription again. I was charged for the past 2 months but I am not looking to recoup those amount. However, I was just charged for this month today. Can I close my store to be refunded that amount back?

From the sounds of it, your account would still be active if you're still being billed for the monthly subscription. Could you attempt to login to your account? If you're greeted with a pricing page, the account is closed, which would indicate that you have a secondary account setup. If you're not greeted with a pricing page, and you're able to fully login, then the account is still active and would require that you navigate to Settings/Account or Settings/Plans and Permissions then select "Close Store" at the bottom of the page. Doing so will put you through the prompts to fully close the store and remove you from active billing. Once done, let me know!

Happy to help here! To provide some context, if the account is not closed before the end of the trial period, and a credit card is added, then that indicates that you've authorized our systems to charge the monthly amount. The refund will need to be processed by someone in Support as it's not an automatic refund. As long as the account was closed within the 72 hours of the invoice generating, I can get a refund processed back to you. I've sent you an email to the email listed in your Community account to get this request reviewed.

@Peter 

Hello, I have closed my account which is a paid account. When I sign into it, it brings me to the pricing page.

However, I have another account which is shopify developers preview account. This account seems to not be a paid account, however I cannot seem to find where to delete this account.

 

Am I still able to obtain the refund for my paid account which I have closed?

Thank you for ensuring your account was closed. We'll need to take this to email as we can't speak about account specifics in a public forum. I've sent you an email to the email listed on your forums account. If you can follow up there, then I can get your refund request reviewed.
