We recently created a Shopify account for our Business. We started out with WordPress and decided to transfer over to Shopify.
We connected the already existing Domain to the new Shopify site, but the domain is still showing up as the old site.
Is there any way Shopify can help us with this problem.
Would be much appreciated.
Hello @jangiaccessorie !
Before you transfer a domain to Shopify, consider the following requirements.
You need to have registered your domain more than 60 days ago.
You need to wait up to 20 days after you begin the transfer for the transfer to complete.
You need to pay to register your domain for 12 months. The 12 months are added on to your domain's current expiry date
You need to have access to your original domain provider account and the email account that you use to log in to it.
You need to monitor and respond to confirmation emails to complete the transfer process.
Hope this helps!
Hey @jangiaccessorie ,
From your Shopify admin, click Online Store > Domains.
Click Transfer domain.
Enter the domain that you want to transfer to Shopify. Do not include www. at the beginning of the domain.
Click Verify domain.
Depending on which message is displayed, do one of the following:
If DOMAIN UNLOCKED is displayed, then the domain is ready to be transferred. Click Next to continue.
If DOMAIN LOCKED is displayed, then make sure you've prepared your domain for transfer.
In the Verification code dialog box, enter the authorization code, or EPP code, given by your domain provider.
Click Buy and transfer.
Check the email account associated with your domain. Depending on your domain provider, you might have an email asking you to confirm these changes. The email message varies, but you need to approve the domain transfer by clicking a link such as Confirm Transfer or Approve Transfer
Hope this helps!
Can you take a screenshot and attach please.
