How to end Shopify subscription

If you no longer wish to use Shopify for your online store, you can end your subscription at any time. Ending your Shopify subscription will close your store and stop any recurring charges associated with your account. Here's how to end your Shopify subscription:

1. Access Shopify Admin:

Log in to your Shopify admin dashboard using your credentials.

2. Navigate to Billing Settings:

From the Shopify admin, click on "Settings" and then select "Billing" or "Account" to access your billing settings.

3. Review Subscription Details:

Review your current subscription plan, billing cycle, and any associated charges.

4. Cancel Subscription:

Scroll down to the bottom of the billing page and locate the "Close store" or "Cancel subscription" option. Click on the option to begin the process of ending your Shopify subscription.

5. Confirm Closure:

Shopify will prompt you to confirm that you want to close your store and end your subscription. Review the consequences of closing your store, such as losing access to your Shopify admin and domain, and click on the confirmation button to proceed.

6. Select Closure Date (Optional):

Depending on your billing cycle, Shopify may allow you to choose a closure date for your store. Select the date you want your store to be closed, or choose to close it immediately.

7. Confirm Closure and Billing Cancellation:

Once you've reviewed the closure details and selected a closure date (if applicable), confirm your decision to close your store and end your subscription. Shopify will confirm the closure and cancel any upcoming billing charges associated with your account.

Additional Considerations

  • Domain Considerations: If you purchased a custom domain through Shopify, you may need to transfer or cancel the domain separately through your domain registrar.
  • Subscription Proration: Shopify may prorate your final billing based on the closure date and any remaining days in your billing cycle.
  • Data Retention: After closing your store, Shopify may retain your store's data for a certain period, allowing you to reactivate your account if needed. Contact Shopify support for more information on data retention policies.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Can I reopen my Shopify store after closing it?

A: Yes, you can reopen your Shopify store after closing it, provided that you haven't exceeded any data retention limits and your account is still within Shopify's reactivation period. Contact Shopify support for assistance with reopening your closed store.

Q: Will I receive a refund for any unused portion of my Shopify subscription?

A: Shopify may provide a refund for any unused portion of your subscription if you cancel your subscription before the end of your billing cycle. Refund policies may vary depending on your subscription plan and billing cycle. Contact Shopify support for refund inquiries.

Q: Can I transfer my Shopify subscription to another account or user?

A: Shopify subscriptions are non-transferable between accounts or users. If you want to transfer ownership of a store to another individual or entity, you can use Shopify's account transfer feature to transfer ownership of the store's assets and billing responsibility to another Shopify account.
