I am planning to do sell online my product on Shopify store, but my product is intangible which is travel package, can I sell it on Shopify and is it a risk to connect with Paypal because they can keep a high reserve on my account?

Hi @Kaylee165,

Hyde here from Shopify. Excellent question!

We actually have a helpful document on how to sell services or digital products right here.


The first important point is to uncheck the shipping checkbox to indicate that you are selling a digital product or service instead of a physical product:


You will also need to download the Digital Downloads app to be able to provide your customers with links to their digital products via email.


In terms of Paypal, it is hard to advise on a third-party gateway, but Paypal does support the selling of services. They've got tips on that here.


I hope this all helps, let me know if you have any other questions!


All the best, Hyde.
