Contacting a Shopify store about an order
If a customer of a Shopify-hosted store needs help with an order, then they need to contact the store directly. Store owners are responsible for providing information to their customers about orders. In most cases, customers can contact a store by calling a phone number, email, or contact form found on the store website, or through social media platforms like Facebook Messenger. An order confirmation email might also have store contact details or tracking information for the order.
