This is not a Shoptimized review or a MyShopify review but this is a post to make you aware of scam sites that are operating under Shopify using Shoptimized theme and MyShopify.com subdomain as well as other domains.
Well, we definitely don’t mean MyShopify or Shoptimized is a scam. Shopify is a good and easy platform to create online stores and start your e-commerce business. Shoptimized.net provides a very good website theme for an online store. But, everything has side effects. Since it is very easy to build online stores using the Shopify platform and Shoptimized theme, lots of scammers are taking the benefit of these platforms.
You can find lots of scam online stores operating under MyShopify.com using Shoptimized theme such as Dkaoin.MyShopify, Roypyjtu.MyShopify, Massett.MyShopify, Cipheg.MyShopify, Dorgufn.MyShopify and so on. Well, these are few examples of sites using MyShopify.com domain and Shoptimized theme. We are sure there are more and will be opened more in the future. Not only that, but there are also other similar kinds of scam sites that are using MyShopify.com domain but not a Shoptimized theme.

What is Shoptimized?
Shoptimized is a community of likeminded e-commerce entrepreneurs which offers the various products and services via Shoptimized.net such as Shoptimized theme (Custom theme for Shopify), SpeedBoost Ninja (Help to improve your page-load speeds), Shoptimized Email Marketing Masterclass (Training and guide to e-commerce email marketing), Shoptimized 7-Figure Store Blueprint (course shows you how to setup your store the right way to maximize your chances against heavy competition) and so on.
We can’t guarantee that all services provided by Shoptimized are best but at least we can say Shoptimized is not a scam. But, lots of scam sites using Shoptimized theme to build their website which is creating a misunderstanding among people about Shoptimized company. You must know those scam sites (scam online stores) are not from Shoptimized but they are only using the Shoptimized theme. So, don’t misunderstand Shoptimized due to those scam sites which are using the Shoptimized theme.
What is MyShopify.com?
MyShopify.com is a free domain provided by Shopify.com to create an online store under the Shopify platform. For example, “yourdomainname.myshopify.com”. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t have a private domain using the Shopify platform. If you want to have your own domain while using the Shopify store, then you can purchase the domain and create your own private domain website using the Shopify platform.
Since Shopify provides multiple easy ways to create online stores, now scammers are misusing this good platform. Yes, there are tons of legit online stores operating under the Shopify platform. But, at the same time, there are also tons of scam online stores operating under Shopify.
Now, you may want to know how to identify those Shopify scam online stores from the legit ones, right? Well, we are definitely going to explain that later, but first of all, we want to let you know that Shopify is concerned about their company’s reputation. So, if you find Shopify scam online stores, then you can report that to Shopify and Shopify will take down that after doing research.
OK, now let’s find out how to identify these scam online stores using MyShopify domain and Shoptimized theme.
How to identify scam Shoptimized and MyShopify online stores from the legit ones?
- Whenever you find any online stores, the first thing you should check is their contact information such as their company’s address, contact phone number and so on. Most of the scam online stores don’t provide any contact details. But, some scam online stores try to trick people by providing fake contact information. So, if you find any online stores with contact information, don’t follow them blindly. At least try to do some research and check the provided contact information are correct or not.
- Most of the time scam online stores offer a heavy discount on the price of products. So, if you find any online stores offering a heavy discount on the price of products, don’t fall into that blindly. At least try to find out the real price of those products on a genuine website and then try to figure out how much discount can be offered on such items. If you find some online stores are offering a discount which is too good to be true, then that must not be true.
- Scam online stores also don’t care about the security of their websites. So, try to check either the websites are secured or not. Check all the trust seal logos such as Norton or McAfee or VeriSign and so on provided on those sites are fake or real. The real ones should be clickable so that we can click on them which should send us to the official verification webpage of respective trust seal providers. All unclickable trust seal logos are the fake ones. Similarly, all clickable trust seal logos which don’t send us to the official verification webpages of respective trust seal providers when we click on them are the ones providing the fake trust seals. Some scam online stores may not provide the fake trust seals, but still, you can check either they have secured their website properly or not by checking all the provided security measures. If they haven’t provided any security measures, then that means they are not secured and not good online stores.
- Most of the Shoptimized and MyShopify scam online stores are selling almost same items such as Video Game Consoles, Swing Chair, Garden Furniture, Construction Accessories, Children’s Playgrounds, Children’s Electric Cars, Tools, Outdoor Electric Cars, Patio Furniture, Mini Excavator, etc. So, if you find any Shopify online stores selling these items on a heavy discount price, then you should be more alert and do more research on those online stores before purchasing anything from there.
Now you must be aware of Shopify and Shoptimized scam online stores, but that doesn’t mean scam online stores are only using the Shopify and Shoptimized platforms. There are uncountable scam online stores these days which are operating from various hosting platforms. So, don’t fall into scam online stores just because they are operating under a reputed hosting platform. Always do your own research before purchasing anything from unknown online stores.
Actually, many people fall into the scam online stores due to the very low product price that most of the scam online stores offer on relative products. However, instead of falling for that, avoid them. If you find something too good to be true, then you should know that may not be true. So, don’t fall into the trap of scammers just because they attract you with flashy design, attractive products, and a very low price. Instead, you must know that is a sign of bad online stores.
