How can I purchase a license for an imported theme on Shopify?

11 0 1

Hello all,

I have previously used the Pixel Union Empire Theme on another Shopify store and I've made a huge amount of code changes that I'd like to avoid paying for a second time.

I've exported the edited theme and uploaded it to my new store but I'm not quite sure how to purchase a licence for it before publishing?

I've downloaded the Empire theme trial which has a "Buy now" button next to it, however I assume that will assign the licence to this particular version of the theme and not my imported version. Does anyone know how I can move that licence across before publishing to avoid Shopify suspending my account? (Which seems to be their favourite passtime!)



Thanks in advanced!
