I am just starting my trial for shopify but the store hasn't went live yet, is there a way to change the name of my store?

Heya! 

Ana here, from the Shopify support team. :)

To answer your question, yes - you can change the name of your store. You can do this in Settings>General:

However, one thing that you won't be able to change is your Shopify username, the .myshopify.com URL that you use to login. If you added a custom domain to your store though (in Online Store>Domains) and selected your custom domain as your primary domain, that original .myshopify.com URL is never customer-facing and you would be the only one who sees this.

If it's important to you that this matches to your actual store name, you will need to create a new account. If you'd like to do this, here's some information on duplicating your store so that you can create a new account without losing what you've done so far. 

Hope this helps! :)

Happy selling,
Ana

I am trying to change my store name and add a custom URL, however, when entering the new detail and clicking in save it just goes into some sort of processing loop and never saves?

I have the same problem.  I can't seem to change my domain name no matter how hard I try.

@hauteswanfashio  You cannot change your .myshopify domain, it's unique and fixed as a user account.

The only think you can do is to buy a custom domain, either from Shopify or a third party provider.

Hi guys,

I made my first test purchase, and what appeared on my bank statement was the name of my myshopify domain. How can I change that, or do I need to start a new account and duplicate my store over?

I already bought a new domain with a different name as I changed the name of my brand.

To clarify, I'm cool with the myshopify/username being different than my brand, but I want customers to see the brand name on their bank statements, not the "myshopify domain" user name.

Thanks!

hey, yes.. it's quite easy to change the Shopify store name.. Although it doesn't allow you to change the Shopify domain.
