How to remove or edit old domain names in Shopify?

Hi. Not sure if this is in the right spot. I recently transferred my domain to Shopify and everything is working correctly. However under my domains in Shopify, it still shows the numbers.myshopify.com (this was from when I first signed up)

How do I remove that?

In a lot of the apps I use, it has that for the store name and I am not sure to edit or remove itScreenshot 2024-02-09 at 9.04.39 PM.png

I believe you can't change that. Shopify adds that number to make your store unique and to identify. I would reach out to Support and ask, but pretty sure you can't change it now.

Ok thank you. I thought the numbers would go away once I transferred my domain over. I will contact them

This is correct.  That's the unique "ID" for your Shopify store.  It won't ever go a way.  You can just assign your "real" domain name as the Primary address for the store (which it looks like you did).

 

That number is necessary for all sorts of things (Partner access is just one) so you want to keep it around.  🙂

I know i am late to the party, but i am searching for the same problem and from another store in my company i know, that it is possible. I just did not figure out how. Here is a screenshot from a shop that is already live and got rid of the numeric domain...
Maybe someone could help.

That's because they may have transferred the store on a new one. I can help you do that and setup the domains as well. 
Just DM me the url of the store.
