Are Products on Shopify Legit?

The products on Shopify are not owned or managed by Shopify itself, but rather by individual businesses that use the Shopify platform to sell their products online.

It is up to each individual business to ensure that the products they sell on Shopify are legitimate and of good quality. Shopify does not monitor or verify the products sold by its merchants, but it does have policies in place to prohibit the sale of certain products that are illegal or violate its terms of service.

If you have any concerns about the legitimacy or quality of a product purchased from a Shopify store, you should contact the store directly to address your concerns.

Shopify provides tools for customers to contact merchants directly through their store pages, and many merchants have customer service teams in place to handle inquiries and resolve issues.

The Takeaway

It’s key to point out that Shopify is trusted by thousands, upon thousands of entrepreneurs around the world! Shopify is a tool, thus you choose to use it how you see fit(Within Shopify guidelines).

But, that’s not to say there aren't any rouge scammers around selling less-than-desirable products. In every industry and crevice, you’ll find scrupulous and malicious individuals.
