Hello

I want to speak about a very bad experience with shopify.

I created a shop and I did the mistake of buying this domain with shopify.

After 48h shopify decided to close my shop because my activity is too risky for them.

No problem for us, we accepted that and we decided to create our shop with another plateform.

But shopify doesn’t want to allow us to reuse this domain during 12 months.

This domain is not the property of shopify we worked with an agency to create this name and now we can’t use it anywhere.

So to all user of shopify don’t use their system to buy a domain we can loose it when shopify will decide your busines is too risky for them.

I hope shopify changes the policy abiut that.

Yes, same thing happened to me. I hadn't even opened my store and they shut me down. Now I can't get my domain because they won't release it.  I bought it from them. Wonder if it's a side gig? Like I have to buy it from them for more money in 9 months when it expires? I am starting a class action suit, please answer if you are interested. pattyfifi@comcast.net
