I have read through the AUP and restricted items list and have read that certain firearm parts, ie

  • magazine capable of accepting more than 10 rounds

go against the AUP. However, I have viewed multiple stores that are selling 30 round magazines through Shopify, while not shipping to the states where those magazines are restricted. I would like a clear cut answer on whether or not it would be acceptable for me to sell customized 30 round magazines, through Shopify, as long as I am not shipping to restricted states.

Hi, @kj426!


We wouldn't be able to say for certain what can or can't be sold through Shopify as this depends on many factors, including local laws. However, if something is listed in Shopify's restricted items list, I would not attempt to sell it through Shopify as anything listed there is prohibited. All that being said, for the most accurate answer on this it's best to confirm with independent legal counsel to ensure you're complying with all of Shopify's policies. If you come across stores you believe to be using Shopify, that are violating Shopify's policies, you can report this through the AUP violation form here.
