Does anything know when Shopify's B2B theme, Trade, is going to be released? I saw this in the Winter Edition they just released but they didn't have a date. I am looking to create a store dedicated to B2B very soon and was interested in checking it out and possibly using it. Just wanted to get an idea of if its soon or still a few months away.

This is an accepted solution.

I was told the first week of April from the Shopify B2B team so I am hoping by the end of this week it will be released. Fingers crossed.

Hi Taylor.

Nothing has been released about the launch of this theme. I have spoken with Shopify Support, and they do not have any visibility from the product team about this. I also hoped to access this theme for a new merchant.

 

I guess that if they do not have visibility on this internally, it's not 'just around the corner' and is more likely a month or more away. You can sign up for email notifications on this via the Shopify Winter Editions site, under the tile where the Trade theme is mentioned.

Hope that helps and hope they release the theme as soon as possible.

During this year's partner day in Berlin it was teased to be released in Q1 2024, which would mean it will e released by end of March latest. 

That's what was on the respective slide:

Hi folks,

 

Thank you to you all for expressing an interest in the new Trade theme and I know that you're all excited to get your hands on it to start building out your online stores. At this time I can confirm that the theme has not yet be released and I don't have a specific date that I can share with regards to its publication, although my estimate is that it should hopefully become available in the coming weeks. It will be available for download from the Shopify Theme Store as soon as it has been released.

Any chance you're able to share whether or not the expectation is for the release date to be before end of May? Thank you!
