I started a Shopify shop to give a shot. I had a really successful soft launch and generated almost $600 in immediate sales but Shopify charged my customers but kept all of the money!
They keep saying that it will be deposited and sending me through different customer service queues but literally nobody will help me figure this out. I've had pending payout for days and it will not go through. I send the shopify team business documents, ID documents, bank statements. So now it's been a week and my customers are annoyed that their items haven't shipped.
The best part is that I bought my domain through Shopify and they won't let me transfer it for 90 days so basically this has been a giant waste of my time.
GO WITH WORDPRESS OR SOMETHING ELSE. SHOPIFY IS FOR SUCKERS.
