Preparing to transfer your Shopify store
When you are ready to transfer your Shopify store to a new owner, there are a few things you need to do to prepare. First, you will need to export your Shopify data. This can be done by going to Settings > Export and selecting what data you want to export. Next, you will need to create a new user for the new owner. To do this, go to Settings > Users and click the “Add User” button. Enter the new owner’s information and set their access level. Finally, you will need to transfer your domain name. To do this, go to Settings > Domains and click on the “Transfer Domain” button. Follow the prompts to complete the process.
How to transfer your Shopify store
Assuming you are the current owner of a Shopify store, and you would like to transfer ownership to someone else, there are a few steps you need to take. First, you need to add the new owner as a staff member in your Shopify admin. To do this, go to Settings > Account, and scroll down to the Staff Members section. Here, you can add the new owner’s name, email address, and permissions. Once they have been added as a staff member, they will be able to log in to your Shopify store as an administrator.
Next, you need to transfer ownership of your domain name to the new owner. To do this, log in to your Shopify account and go to Settings > Domains. Under theDomain Management section, click on the Transfer Domain button next to the domain you want to transfer. Follow the prompts from there to complete the process.
Finally, you need to transfer payment processing over to the new owner. To do this, log in to your Shopify account and go left hand side menu>Settings>Payment Providers. At the bottom of that page is a section called “Transferring Your Payment Gateway”. Select “I want to disable my existing gateway first” and then click on “Change Provider”. From here you can select which ever gateway the new shop owner wants and follow their prompts for set up (i.e Authorize.net).
After you transfer your Shopify store
Once you have transferred your Shopify store to the new owner, there are a few things you need to do to ensure a smooth transition.
First, you need to update your contact information in the Shopify admin. This includes your email address, phone number, and mailing address. You can do this by going to Settings > Account.
Next, you need to update your payment information. If you’re using a third-party payment gateway, you’ll need to update your account details with them as well. You can do this by going to Settings > Payments.
Finally, you need to change the password for your Shopify account. This is important for security purposes and will ensure that only the new owner has access to the account. You can do this by going to Settings > Security.
