Redesigning an existing site

Hi, I am confused. I have had multiple clients come to me wanting me to redesign their existing shopify store. But as a partner, can we do this while earning commission? Or can we only earn commission if the person has no shopify account previously? I have yet to find anyone interested in having a shopify store designed that hasn’t already started a trial.

You only earn a commission if it's a new store.

Hi, @SauntraHC ! 


I'd like to expand on what @fadi_yousif said. In order to transfer a store over to a client to earn a commission, the store must have been created as a development store within your partner profile from the start.


There is no way to transfer stores into development store status once it has already been created. 


I hope this helps.
