When I search for my shopify ecommerce shop online I get Sorry this shop is not available.
i can see my shop through admin however that does me no good since I am a store and trying to sell products.
Please help me get my shopify shop available.
Solved! Go to the solution
My name is Lilith, I'm on the Social Care team at Shopify.
This does sound odd. Without a link to your store, I'm not able to view what you might be seeing.
Normally if a site shows the screen that your store is unavailable, you won't have access to view the admin right away after logging in.
If you missed any bill payments, this can cause the issue sometimes. However, if you logged in and paid your bill before entering your admin, you'll see the storefront immediately again.
Have you also tried to view your site on a different device?
Let me know how you do with the information above!
Hello again, this is ( gethighandbake.myshopify.com )
I am just wondering what solution you have for me. my ecommerce store is still unavailable now for 3 days.
I really need to know how to fix it I am paying my monthly fee and because i am not available on line i am not making any money.
Please please help me, thank you. Carol
Hi, @Chillin. Thanks for your patience. Our Community forums will take a bit longer to receive replies as it's asynchronous, but we do have live chat, callback and email support available if you find yourself waiting more than you'd like.
Onwards to the URL you posted, though
There isn't a store for gethighandbake.myshopify.com. The specific type of unavailable page gave me a hint at this, I see these in our support queues once in a while and this could be due to misspellings, incorrect characters, or missing characters in the URL.
If you're logged in you can head into Online Store > Domains and see the spelling of your store domain there under the Shopify managed domains. If you have any special characters (i.e dashes or underscores) in between words or letters you'll want to make note of that.
Take a peek at your domains in your admin and see if you've got the correct URL to your store.
This is an accepted solution.
Your 'store name', or domain, cannot be changed once it is bought - you cannot remove dashes from a purchased URL. This is the domain you paid for and it is non-refundable, non-editable. You will have to buy a new domain without the dashes in it, if you want that
If someone searches 'get high and bake store', if your store url has dashes in it, this won't affect their search. They won't need to type 'get-high-and-bake' to find it.
@Chillin great question!
What @masaoumi mentioned in their reply is definitely correct and a great explanation of how that works.
It's also good to remember that having a custom domain is a far better, low cost, and more influential way to build a good brand.
We do have a great guide on managing domains as well to help you manage them on Shopify!
