Shopify may be one of the most popular eCommerce platforms, but it doesn’t mean that it’s the perfect solution for all types of businesses. Whether you are not making enough sales, moving into a new eCommerce platform, or are considering going out of digital marketing entirely, you need to delete your Shopify account first.

If you’re ready to close your Shopify store, here are five simple steps you must do:

  1. Log in to your Shopify account and make sure you are logged in as the owner.
  2. Go to Settings and click Account.
  3. At the bottom of your Account page, click Store Status. And then, click Close Store.
  4. Next, you will see a pop-up asking for the reason why you’ve decided to close your store. Choose your answer from the drop-down menu and click Close Store.
  5. After clicking, you will land on a confirmation page. Please note that you will be prompted to start a new plan if you attempt to log in again.

Before you go through this process, think carefully about whether deleting your Shopify account is really the way you want to go. Here are some things that you should be wary of:

  1. If you have outstanding bills on your account, you still have to settle them before closing your Shopify store.
  2. You need to cancel all of your third-party apps first, or else you might still be billed even if you don’t plan on using them anymore.
  3. Transfer your custom domain or cancel it if you won’t use it anymore.

Are you still feeling unsure about deleting? Shopify also gives the option of pausing your store for three months, but you still have to pay a monthly subscription of $14.
