so far so good. Just started using this platform and already have a sale. Bit of an issue transferring from ebay due to categories. Same issue transferring to FB shops. Still has ways to work around but will take some time
Okay, so first off, I've never had issues with Shop or customers themselves. I find the idea of getting more eyes on my shop a good thing, HOWEVER... I use a third party app and I noticed that on my Shop store, my wholesale listings are available for people to purchase from. My tags are set up so there is a retail side and wholesale side of my listings, so I'm not sure why people on Shop have access to my wholesale listings. But I need them to NOT be buying from my wholesale. This is going to screw up my inventory.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to review the Shop channel. At this stage, our system for the Shop channel won't respect any wholesale rules that a store may have with their products. Wholesale merchants are also typically automatically not opted into Shop by default, in order to mitigate the risks that being featured in the Shop app could have for the store (ie. customers in seeing the store's wholesale pricing). If a merchant would like to still sell with Shop however, and accept the risk of special wholesale product rules in being ignored, they can opt in themselves by installing the app within their Shopify admin.
To sum up however, at this stage the Shop channel isn't compatible with stores that also offer wholesale pricing. I see how beneficial it will be to offer this feature however, so I'll be sure to pass on your thoughts and feedback to the most relevant development team for their consideration. -Kimi, Shopify Support
Shop is the most convenient way to buy and allow customers to shop directly on Shop. Shop App make payments and purchase fast. Customers can easily saves their email address, shipping details and credit card for a more convenient experience. Most important customers have access to track order with delivery directly with the app, which increases trustworthiness towards my brand, because customers don’t have to go through their email to find their order status.
I love the app, but it definitely needs more details on how to run campaigns and use it to improve sales.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! If you are wanting to learn more about the customization options for the Shop sales channel you can find that in our Help Center here: https://shopify.link/N8L8.

The Shop app has some good aspects to it, but in our case its absolutely useless as Shopify has decided to not allow shops who at any point has received IP claims to join.
I understand the general idea of this and the intention to keep copies out from Shop, but as a side effect it also shuts out sellers who have been targeted by claims without legal basis like in our case. This policy also apparently does not have an expiry date, so it's enough you have one claim, no matter how old it is. By doing this Shopify basically takes the side of the claimant, no matter how unfounded and unjust the claim in itself would be. Like always the side effect with blanket policies like this one is that there will be a lot of non-deserving merchants affected by this, and there is nothing you as a seller can do about it.
The only way to solve this would be to take the issue to actual court, which obviously is beyond the possibilities for many small merchants around the world like ourselves. I find this policy and it's enforcement so unjust that it would be impossible to rate this app with more stars.
What makes this policy even more absurd is that it only applies to the actual shop which received the claim and not the company. So we have two instalments of our shop for different markets, and one can join Shop while the other can not. That means that if you really would be a business operating in bad faith you can simply just set up a new shop to circumvent this if needed be.
The reason I give this channel two stars instead of one is that it actually offers some ok features and works fairly smooth - if you are accepted that is. You can of course use some of it's features even if you are not eligible to sell on Shop, but it's still a bit of a slap in the face for any merchant who actually would like to list their products but are not able to due to blanket policies like this which is enforced without exceptions.
Shopify posted their standard answer to this, which helps nothing. We have discussed this issue extensively with both Shopify Shop support and legal, and like mentioned above the only solution would be to take this case to US court and have the claim removed that way.
Shopify Shop support agrees that this is an unfair situation, but can do nothing except ask you to contact legal - and legal only replies that they do not offer legal advice.
The optimal solution to this would be to offer merchants who feel unjustly treated some kind of a channel to dispute the claim within Shopify (other than going to court), and that way at least get access to the full Shop experience on a case-by-case basis.
Hi there, thanks for taking the time to review our sales channel. I understand you had some trouble with eligibility for our Shop sales channel. If you were deemed ineligible for certain features, you should still be able to install the channel. Your customers will continue to be able to take advantage of order tracking, viewing recent orders and seeing the available contact information for your business.
If you want us to take a closer look at your ineligibility circumstances, and to see if there's a way to rectify the matter, please contact us directly after logging in via the following link so that we can authenticate you on the account: https://bit.ly/3NehLrk.
Violations of Shopify's Acceptable Usage Policy would be one of the reasons listed here - as listed here https://bit.ly/3A4GLgJ . In relation to the actual claim, we just see the end result. Matters like that are handled by our Legal team, and we have no insights or input into them for security and privacy reasons. You should have been emailed in relation to the policy issue by the Legal team. If not, we can certainly request they reach out to you again if you get in touch with us via https://bit.ly/3NehLrk
Either way, please do get in touch as we'd certainly like to take a closer look at your issue to see if there's any way it can be resolved.
