You may need to take a vacation from running your Shopify store from time to time. Or perhaps you simply require more time to continue working on it. Shopify offers a variety of alternatives from which you can choose the best fit for your company.
Whether it’s closing it altogether or taking a brief break. Read below instructions to understand how to pause and close your store, as well as what measures to take ahead of time and how to change your subscription.
HOW TO PASUSE OR CANCEL SHOPIFY SUBSCRIPTION?
1. Pause Instead of Cancel
Customers won’t try to buy anything while your store is on pause and build if you adjust your theme to hide your product prices and hide the Add to cart buttons.
If you don’t want your products to be visible while your store is paused, you can safeguard your online store with a password. You may personalise your password page and create a message that your customers will see.
2. Pause for 90 days
3. Cancel Shopify Subscription Completely
NOTE: If you have any third-party apps that bill you outside of Shopify, then cancel your service with those apps to avoid being billed externally after you close your store.
Make sure that you pay any outstanding charges that you might have. If you have no outstanding charges against your account, then you won’t receive a bill after closing your store.
STEPS TO PAUSE OR CANCEL SHOPIFY SUBSCRIPTION
- From the Shopify admin, click “Settings”, then click “Plan”.
- Next, click “pause or cancel subscription”.
- Here you can see the three options as explained above. Make your selection and follow the on-screen prompts.
- To Cancel Shopify Subscription click “cancel subscription and close store”.
- Select the reason that you’re closing your store from the dropdown list, and answer any questions that may follow it.
- Next, enter your password and click “Close store”.
Remember, you can always reopen your store within the 2 years and view your past bills any time you’d like.
