hi, I helped many clients in this case , I think the best solution would be to create a new store ( development store , unlimited free under development first ), and then transfer the data over, including themes, products.

Please let me know if the solution fits you. I think we can manage to do in 3 to 4 hours max. my email is at : david@zago.se

best regards

i think first you transfer theme, then products and recheck to see if any elements need to be updated. and then fix them if not working. for easier moving store without time limitation, you can signup unlimited free trial shopify at : www.zago.se/shopify we can help you setup the development store. best regards

Hi Sashika,

Saša here from Shopify!

You are correct. Once a .myshopify.com domain is created  and linked to a store it cannot be edited or changes as it is permanently tied to your Shopify account.

You don't, however need to go through the process of creating a new account as long as you are intending to purchase a commercial domain. If you have/purchase your own commercial domain, as long as this commercial domain is set up as your primary domain within the Shopify Admin, your customers will not be able to see the .myshopify.com domain. 

So instead of seeing yourstore.myshopify.com/product, they will instead only be able to see yourstore.com/product.

If you do still wish to proceed with creating a new account and choosing a new .myshopify.com domain, please consult our backup and duplication guide to help you transfer your content from one account to the other.

Cheers,

Saša | Support Guru

We've built an app that can help duplicate a store from one myshopify domain to another. You can check it out at https://apps.shopify.com/store-copy 

It's a lot easier than doing it by hand!

It would be far simpler if shopify simply allowed us to change our beginner store url...

Have a message like "this one will be deleted and bla bla bla".

 

We bought a domain, so we should have it on our backend store..
