Does anybody know how to actually speak to a person? I am trying to reactivate my frozen store but it won’t let me log in to pay my bill. I really need to speak to someone but every number I find isn’t working.

partners have call and email and chat support but I don't know exactly if merchants do also have phone support available!

I just need to speak to a human & it doesn’t give me that option anymore. It used to before my store was frozen & I am so frustrated.

if you can login to your admin then you can simply pay the bill for shopify plan you want then you can have support access easily because they need to verify via pin from shopify store login so I don't think so there is a way of speaking to then but if you have any questions regarding unfreezing store then please ask 

if its freeze you can reactivate it by choosing a new plan

Hi there, @mct1979!

 

I'm sorry to hear about the issue with your store, but I can definitely provide you with some more information here. We're available 24/7 and can help you via live chat, email, and callback. When it comes to reaching out to our live Support line, I'll provide some steps here to make it easier.

 

  1. Head over to this link: Contact Shopify Support · Shopify Help Center
  2. Log in (recommended) or Continue without logging in
  3. Use the Search Bar to look into your current issue, such as "Issue with billing" or "Request callback"
  4. Scroll down to where it says Get support and click Continue
  5. Choose one of the available support options

 

Once you're connected to a Support Advisor, you can explain your issue and they will look into your account and see what actions need to be taken.

 

I do also recommend reading over this help document regarding how to reactivate a frozen store, and trying the steps outlined.

 

I hope this helps, and please let me know if you have further questions!

No, this is not helpful at all. All of your live chat options are AI driven now and they do not listen to instructions at all. Pleas provide a link to LIVE CHAT. Your help center does not list anything. Please post the link on here so the entire community has access without having go through your confusing AI bots.

Hi, @HGGaming!

 

Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. The new help center chat assistant was created to help merchants find resources and answers to common questions more easily. You can still be connected with our live support team using the new Help Center. Simply enter in details about your question or concern to the assistant, review the answers provided, and select that you still need help if applicable. 

 

Let me know if you need any further assistance!

This is ridiculous that you don't have a call line to speak with someone at Shopify, you know a lot of issues are pretty technical to have them described through text only, I have been going in circles with your live chat agent. This might be saving your company a lot of time and money but it is a huge waste of time for your customers who are busy small business owners and don't have time to for this.

I can't find help ANYWHERE and your bot chat system is useless! I'm frustrated beyond words!

 

I need to figure out why taxes are not being charged on my products. I've add my tax info into "Taxes and Duties" and "Charge Tax on this Product" is enable in my product pages.

 

I don't want another automated message with a link to a useless article.

Hi, @swaggett.

 

I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble with your taxes, and I absolutely understand how frustrating it is not being able to get in touch. 

 

If you would like to reach out to our team through live chat, you can follow these steps:

 

  1. Head over to the Help Center
  2. Enter the details of your issue into the chat assistant (in your case, something like "Taxes aren't being charged on my products despite the tax settings being enabled").
  3. After the chat assistant has provided its response, click I still need help below their message. 
  4. Select your store and be transferred to a Support Advisor. 

 

If you'd prefer, I can assist you here. When you say taxes aren't being charged on your products, is it for all orders, or only orders placed in certain regions? If you have any additional information you can share with me here, that would be super helpful.

 

Please let me know if you have any questions about any of this!

We're happy to help as much as we can here. If you have any general questions about Shopify, post a new topic on the relevant board and the Community will do their best to help.

Account-specific issues such as billing inquiries or matters to do with your account's settings require contacting Shopify Support securely through the Help Center. Whether or not you're able to login, the virtual assistant chat in the Help Center will be able to connect you with our team. If you're logged in, you might see an option to click "Account support" or "I still need help" within the virtual assistant chat. If you can't login, type "can't login" to proceed. 

 

In the interest of account security, we can't access your account from here. This is why account-specific matters need to be handled securely through the Help Center.
