Before you are able to start accepting payments for your Shopify store, you need to request and finalize the activation of your live account by completing a form, and provide information that will help us verify the business and identity of the individuals involved in your business. 

Shopify integration is available only for 2Checkout accounts that handle their own tax and invoice management (2Sell and 2Subscribe). 

If you already linked your 2Checkout account to your Shopify store using our legacy connector, you can switch to the new integration to benefit from the new ConvertPlus experience.

Follow these steps to complete integration with Shopify:

1. Install the 2Checkout ConvertPlus Connector from this URL.

2. You will be prompted to log into your Shopify account.

1. To avoid potential delays with account activation, ensure that you have created your store in Shopify and that your store is visible so that the required reviews can take place. Please refer to Shopify’s manual here for instructions detailing their system’s operation. Shopify support can also be contacted here.

2. If any changes are made to your domain (to a custom Shopify domain/other), e-mail us the new URL at in order to update your 2Checkout account, and thus avoid a communication mismatch. Currently, when you are using a third-party cart and want to have multiple URLs, you need to create a new account for each new URL.
