About the Shopify Partner Program

The Shopify Partner Program consists of digital professionals using the Shopify platform, including designers, developers, marketers, and affiliates building ecommerce websites, themes, and apps. We offer our partners three great ways to grow their business and generate ongoing monthly revenue. As a Shopify Partner, you can:

  • refer clients to Shopify
  • create ecommerce themes and publish them in the Shopify Theme Store
  • create Shopify Apps and publish them in the Shopify App Store

As a Shopify Partner, you have access to unlimited development stores and in-depth documentation. Gain insider information on our product roadmap and upcoming feature releases, and leverage priority partner support to quickly resolve you or your clients' questions. You'll receive free training and resources to learn Shopify and grow your business.

Best of all, your clients will love our multi-channel platform that allows them to sell anywhere, securely and reliably, with our industry-leading security and uptime. Shopify offers full storefront customization to help you deliver exactly what your client is looking for. More than 500,000 merchants around the world are powered by Shopify, and many of them are looking for help building and customizing their stores.

You'll be assigned your own Growth Coach after you refer three clients to Shopify.
