Hello @BilalSaqib!

This is Lana from Shopify.

Are you looking to sell your store on Exchange Marketplace? If so, there are certain requirements that the store needs to meet before you can post the listing:

  • Only the Shopify store owner can access and install the Exchange app in a Shopify store.
  • Your Shopify account needs to be on a paid plan or a development plan. This includes Shopify's Pause and Build online store plan.
  • Your business can't be on Shopify Plus plan. If your business is currently on Shopify Plus, then you need to contact Shopify Plus Support and discuss the possibility of negotiating your contract and downgrading to an eligible plan.
  • Your business can't be in its trial period. You need to wait one day after paying your first Shopify subscription fee to be eligible.
  • If you use Shopify Payments, then your account needs to be in good standing. If your business has been removed from Shopify Payments, then you can't list your business on Exchange.
  • You can't have active financing from Shopify Capital.
  • You can't have any open tickets with the Shopify Risk team, the Shopify Recovery team, or the Shopify Legal team. Any outstanding issues need to be resolved before you can list your store for sale.
  • All listings need to adhere to the Shopify Terms of Service and Partner Program agreement.

There is no requirement for the store to have made sales before you can post the listing, so if you meet all other points then you should be good to go! I have a link for you here with the list of requirements and the process overview. Here you can download the Exchange Marketplace app.

Let me know if you have any other questions or issues here, I will be happy to help!

Thanks. -Lana
