They do not respond to applications. Waste of time to be honest. Tried chasing them eight times. Application still under review after nearly three months


Absolute garbage, avoid this app, application rejected!

Do not waste your time with them.

After almost one month under an account review they told me they not believe that my products would generate enough revenue to
justify working together at this time. I only sell products from luxury brands so did not understand this monopoly and disrespectful point of view.

Lyst has been an excellent customer acquisition/brand awareness tool for our brand. It essentially has replicated the content of our site and served it up to an entirely new, fashion-focused, audience. The integration process was quick and easy and now that we're up and running, the program literally requires zero attention. I strongly recommend to all fashion retailers.


As a luxury handbags retailer I feel there is no reason for my brand NOT to be on Lyst, nevertheless the application was rejected - why? I think we should be given feedback so that we can potentially fix whatever the rejection reason is. I am currently on made-to-order, however no different to other brands (who I won't name here) on Lyst. I guess it could be that I am a new brand, however if platforms reject new brands(even if they may be better than others) how are we meant to grow? Seems to be very non-friendly towards establishing brands whereas these are the ones needing the most support.


Looking forward to growing my business with Lyst. The integration has been very easy and straightforward, with a dedicated team member to assist with questions.

To note -- as a women's fashion site selling well-known designer brands (and also to note they are new, not consignment), Lyst is a good fit. It appears some of the other (one-star) reviews on here have been disappointed with Lyst solely because their application has been rejected, but their merchandise might be a better fit to integrate with ebay (also just partnered with Shopify), which has a broader marketplace approach. Best of luck to everyone out there in growing their businesses.

We just got set up on Lyst and the process was perfectly painless and seamless. Lyst handles the entire set up to go live. Support is readily available and will work with you every step of the way.

Managing your products is as easy as the click of a button.

I would highly recommend to a friend!


I am unsure why Shopify has chosen to partner with Lyst. I have a business similar to one that is featured on Lyst (The Real Real). Granted my business is quite a bit smaller but I carry the same products ranging from $10,000 Dior handbags to Chanel pumps reselling for $350. So, if some people are rejected because there products don't fit with lyst then what about those of us selling products that are featured on Lyst. Who exactly do they want to use this app. What benefit does Shopify think this app is to it's current users if the criteria isn't met by any of us.

I actually thought I was accepted as I was able to go through the process of adding my products to LYST (or so I thought). I wrote to LYST and asked how I could see my products. I received this reply:

Thank you so much for your interest in Lyst. We regret to inform you that your application have been rejected.

By way of background, Lyst is used as a fashion search platform by our customers - they’re coming to us looking for specific items, rather than to browse and discover new brands. One of the key criteria we look for in new partners is therefore the level of search for the brand (along with positioning, pricing, number of SKUs etc).

At present, the level of demand by the Lyst customer is too low for a partnership with you. We do however re-evaluate these criteria on a regular basis, so I will keep your details on file for now and be in touch should the situation change.

Our best,
The Lyst team

I wouldn't recommend Lyst. I don't know what it's like to sell with them because my application was rejected so I can't comment on that aspect. What I can comment on is that, not only did it take days for my application to be reviewed, when it eventually was I was only informed by means of a red banner in my Shopify store telling me:
"Sorry, your application has been rejected. Your application to Lyst Connect was rejected. Please get in touch with our partnerships team if you would like to get more details about this decision."

Call me old fashioned but I think an email, even if just an automated one, saying thank you for your interest and a reason for an application not being accepted, would be professional.

I thought I'd probably be too small a business to be accepted so it wasn't a surprise when the application was rejected but what was a surprise was that when I emailed them to get some details about why my application was unsuccessful, I received an auto reply saying that they only respond to successful applicants.

I think Shopify are fantastic and I've never had cause for complaint (and am not complaining about Shopify now) but I do think that associating with a company with such an unprofessional way of operating is a bad fit and could potentially be damaging to Shopify's excellent reputation.
