All aboard...this disaster express that @Shopify has created. I'm reading countless cases of people with the same issue and as a business owner myself, I don't see why the issues never been resolved internally.


Like most of you @Shopify startups I decided to open a new shop as I've grown tired of Squarespace. Everyone suggests @Shopify and poof I startup and generate sales. Behold my account is placed under review 2 days prior to my first payout as one of their "standard reviews". What a inconvenience, I feel robbed. Now I have to wait for I have no clue how long for a response on the matter. All I do is sell clothes to "real" people what is the big issue. Can I please have my money to buy materials, Im a small startup. Please can someone from support fix my account?
