We have a zero tolerance policy for spam, and while we are continuously identifying and removing spam, we appreciate your help in flagging questionable content.

🤖 Using AI in the Shopify Community

We love AI and think it's a great way for people to learn and build on their current knowledge. Unfortunately, AI-generated replies have been creating a subpar experience for our members. 

To help set expectations as it relates to AI in the community, check out this blog post to learn more! 

 

💬 New Social Sharing Options

Interested in sharing a topic, reply, or blog post with someone? You can easily share it via email, your favorite social networks, or simply copy the link with just one. To try it out, look for the new social share icon shown in the top right corner of the content.
