Cross-Selling Traffic Sharing plugin

Hello Everyone,

I received an email from someone who "picked my store" as part of "Cross-Selling Traffic Sharing plugin". Below is a portion of the email (in italics) with some Shopify's "action descriptions". Has anyone received these types of emails? Is the description of the Shopify model correct? I could not find anyway of sending this to Shopify, so, I'm posting here as I'm rather puzzled. I would appreciate your comments.

Best, Fernanda

Hi ,Azurlis Limited

It’s your traffic sharing partner XYZ. Your products at showed up on my Shopify store, via the Cross-Selling Traffic Sharing plugin we both use, so I decided to reach out.

Are you aware that Shopify shuts down 100% of all credit card merchant accounts owned by its high-risk merchants?

In general, for all industries, a high-risk merchant is a seller who is included in a high-risk industry (, or either dropships, sells items they currently do not have housed as inventory in their personal warehouse, or sells products which they do not own or created as a brand.

Industries considered high risk to Shopify includes Electronics, Fashion, Beauty, Automobile, House & Garden, Video Games, Software, Downloads, Tickets, Adult, Guns & Accessories, Computer & Services, etc.

When your account is shut down by Shopify, you might be placed on the MATCH list, which would mean that you would be unable to have a new Credit Card account opened for you by any processor, until 5 years.

Shopify Basic costs $29 monthly (and 2.9% + 30¢ per transaction). The Shopify plan is $79 monthly (and 2.6% + 30¢ per transaction). Advanced Shopify is $299 monthly (and 2.4% + 30¢ per transaction). Shopify Plus pricing starts at $2000 monthly.

Wont you agree with me, if I said you are paying too much for an unsuitable service, because you could have a Credit Card merchant account, perfectly suited for Low-High Risk Merchants, with 0% Processing Fees per transaction?

With Cloud Merchant, you can now accept Credit Cards online, with Unlimited Processing at 0%, without the fear of your account ever being shut down.
