Shopify, an e-commerce platform that allows you to sell products through an online store, has Shopify Partners, a version of the Shopify site that allows experienced web developers to create Shopify stores for business owners who don’t have the knowledge or skills to do so.
Although anyone can be a Shopify partner, earning money through referrals, it takes a highly-skilled, tech-minded individual to transition from basic to expert. Experts have created at least five successful Shopify stores. The Shopify website then lists those experts so that clients can choose who they want as their Shopify partner.
If you’d like to work as a Shopify Partner for a specific business, you can request collaborator access as a Shopify partner. Once you submit the request for access, your client will then be notified and will then give you the access and permissions you need to proceed.
Here’s a guide to walk you through the process of requesting collaborator access as a Shopify partner.
