Domain Verification Nightmare

Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by EmpireExchange, Jul 25, 2018.

    I have a Shopify store that I'm trying to list on the marketplace here. I spent a good 50 minutes making the post and upgrading my paypal and now I have to verify the domain by adding a file (which only saves as a chrome html document) that shows this string of text: digitalpoint-site-verify:fa6521b5e6973f6efe5271b9b6f4d331
    I'm 100% clueless on how to add this to my site and cannot find any resources on the forums.
    Could someone explain how to do this?

    As far as I'm aware you just upload it via ftp to the root or public_html folder of your site.
    Not sure if you have access to that with shopify, never used it, if not you probably won't be able to sell it here.

    So I've confirmed with Shopify support that uploading a file and adding to DNS records is not possible through Shopify. Therefore no Shopify stores can be sold in the marketplace. Tragic.

    You could use a proxy domain to potentially perform the transaction. Domain names cost 10 dollars a year, generally, so if you wanted to, just buy a domain for the purpose of providing you own the domain, and sell that domain as part of a bundle. They get the domain AND the shopify store.

    If you already have an active domain, and a cpanel account, you could just do shoppify.domain.tld, and add place the file on there to make it active, and then use an .htaccess rule to forward all traffic that hits that domain to your shoppify store.

    Sounds like robyries knows what is up. You may have to convert your shopify store to woocommerce if you want to sell the brand.
