How to make multiple shops from one account?

Situation- I need to make multiple stores, each with own basket, separated each from other with own domain name.

Now- all of them have  the same domain name.

What I need to do, to have multiple stores from one account(not to pay for every store with separate account)?

Hello, Michael.

I'm Jason a Guru here at Shopify.

It would be possible to open two different stores, one under (for example), and the other at its subdomain,

Also, to make sure that this is clear, you'll need to operate these separately on two separate Shopify accounts!

In terms of how to set this up, it does depend slightly on whether or not you purchase the domain from Shopify. If you purchase the domain for store #1, you'll then add this subdomain as an existing domain in store #2, both cases within Online Store > Domains.

Although currently, it is not possible to run multiple stores under one account/admin, it is possible as I mentioned to have two different stores under one Domain, having the second as a Sub-Domain!

You can add multiple Domains to one store and have them all redirect to the same place - but if it's going to be a different online storefront, with different suppliers/warehouses/products/etc, then you'd need an entirely separate account.

I hope this helps, let us know if there is anything else we can help you out with! - Jason


So for that do we need to pay two store amount, or only for one store.

Hi Jason,


Just saw your reply and noticed a mistake: You wrote "It would be possible to open two different stores, one under (for example), and the other at its subdomain,"


A subdomain always appears BEFORE the main domain, e.g. and not as in your example, which would be correct if is the main domain, and example is a subdomain.

Hey Jason,


As it relates to the question posed in this thread, is there a limit to the number of subdomains that a store can have?  And can each subdomain have its on login? And does each sub domain have a seperate monthly fee?  Lastly, is there information on this that you can point us to so that we may learn more.
