Can I get a refund for a forgotten subscription payment?

Can I get a refund for a forgotten subscription payment?

1 0 0


some time ago I started my shopify journey hoping I could make some money as a student.

After some time life got in my way and I stopped really working on my store.

Long story short I forgot that the subscribtion was still active and I woke up to money beeing booked from my paypal. In this situation I am helpless since I dont earn any money myself and have almost no money on my bank account. The payment was booked today and I was wondering if its possible to refund me the money. I have already cancelled the subscribtion. Thanks for your help!

Hi @julianm2161,

Before connecting with us, please ensure your shop has been deactivated and your subscription has been canceled. To complete this, you can check out our Deactivating Your Shop documentation as it provides step-by-step instructions. 


It outlines however, that you can:
