Is Myshopify a scam or is it a legit website?
“Shopify” is a legit business BUT the question was about “MyShopify” which IS a scam. BEWARE! If a deal is too good to be true, ITS PROBABLY A SCAM!
Myshopify is a complete scam. After going through mixed reviews from a lot of people on this forum, I decided to find out the legitimacy of sellers on this website ‘MyShopify’.
Basically, scammers find recently created Shopify Stores and create one with a similar domain name, claiming to sell the same original product. … In the meantime, Shopify took down the fake storefront and added more software tools that cost $30 and up and offer monthly maintenance for merchants’ transactions.
So conducted a small experiment. I ordered two different items for INR 1000/- each from two different sellers as follows.
I had placed the orders on 08 Oct 2020. It’s been more than 15 days. There has not been any response from the sellers. I almost knew that these might be scams, but I took a risk to expose these rascals. I have found out the following facts about the fraudsters.
- The email id provided in the ‘contact us’ tab of both these sites are fake IDs. They don’t exist. When I tried putting a complaint mail, it bounced back with a system response that ‘ID doesnt exist’. This happened in both the sellers’ cases.
- When I tried exploring the ‘Track My Order’ option. Since last 15 days it shows, ‘Your order details will be available in next 48 hrs’ in both cases. Then I tried putting different Order numbers. It says so for anything you type in. It is hardwired coding. Absolutely rubbish and purely scam.
- Even the payment IDs of the rascal sellers on the razorpay platform are following.
‘pay_FkidPTHlp0sTje’ registered in the name of some Vivek Singh
‘pay_FkgyjiWGEvabqA’ registered in the name of some Amar.
Both rascals might hv already disowned these IDs after a successful scam.
These are absolutely fake IDs. Don’t fall for them. Something that looks too good to be true probably isn’t.
It is a scam. Check this link about it – Myshopify is rated “Bad” with 0.3 / 10 on Trustpilot

Is Myshopify a scam or is it a legit website? 2021
It is fake and hosting a lot of webpages which are unrealistic at times, electronics, clothes all less than 1000 Rs. So people don’t pursue it relentlessly. It is like a small value scam, which people will let go, due to nuisance value. Similar experience with their carnival streetwear page.
It’s a completely fake website. I purchased a product but haven’t received it and when I complained the same to Myshopify team they simply told me that they can’t check the order status and ended the conversation. Please don’t waste your money.
This happened to me as well. I spent a large amount of money on the Metal Build Evangelion 01, only to find out now that it’s almost certainly a scam. I’ve sent emails every day, but nothing. Also, the website is offline now. Does anybody know of a way I can get my money back?
Then one of my friends tell me that:
Give your bank a call and ask for a chargeback. I explained to them that the website was a scam and they never sent me a shipping confirmation.
Also told them I did some digging on the website and other people said it was a scam. The bank will just open a dispute and tell you to wait 14 days and then give them a call back if you never receive product/tracking etc…
SHOPIFY is a “platform” where people can create their own “shop” … Shopify is NOT A SCAM… HOWEVER, MANY OF THE SUB-SHOPS ARE.
They advertise products (usually by copy-paste from other large suppliers). They collect orders and get paid under Shopify’s obrella and then THEY DISAPPEAR. You will never get your money back.
To that respect YES, SHOPIFY HAS LEGAL RESPONSIBILITIES EVEN AS “INTRODUCER” AND PAYMENT GUARANTOR (THUS ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR “REFUNDS”). Unfortunately, PayPal (which also is an obrela but only for payments) is covering the same /similar kind of scammers.
We should not let them “rest”. Already reported to EU authorities and are taking legal actions. Paid $20 for product X, Plus shipping $10 (on Paypal’s invoice, in front/covering up of the “seller”). It cost me $20 for EU VAT+CUSTOMS.
HOWEVER, the product in the package was not the product ordered. After 45 days of disputes and claims, the “resolution center” proposed to me to first return the wrong product, and then I will receive the refund of the $30 (20+10).
At first, the “trading” basis is wrong/faulty. I paid in advance and I demand to get my money back first. A second even so, I am losing 100% of the deal (20 Customs+10 Return Shipping). Obviously, they do that so you will lose again more money and get ZERO results.
Anyways, we are filing a legal case for a full refund of our cost of $60, PLUS damages and losses, plus legal expenses. I think, we the consumers will always DEMAND, WHAT WE PAY FOR.
As there are a lot of MyShopify, it would be a mistake to assume that the reviews you can find online would be about the same Myshopify.
That is obviously unfortunate for the honest store owners who are simply for some reason using a MyShopify-domain instead of a proper one and now have to suffer from the fact that there are less trustworthy people who through their actions are harming the reputation of other Myshopify-stores.
And as there indeed are a lot of different MyShopify-stores, there is also no discount code that would work for all of them.
However, if you have stumbled on this page because you are looking for a discount for running your own MyShopify, this page is likely to be helpful.
I called 1 (855) 816-3857 and got a gentleman that would not help me nor represent me in being ripped off by one of their stores. All he told me was to contact my credit card company to get my money back.
You could tell he knows it was a scam. But kept telling me to call my credit card company. Don’t ever buy ANYTHING for Shopify they will not protect you. They just don’t care about the consumer.
