Greetings, Shopify sellers! We want to draw your attention to something worth highlighting. Shopify is shutting down Shopify Kit Skills, and it will nowhere be seen effective from 1st April 2021.
No, it’s not an April fool’s tantrum – it’s official now.
Our understanding of the Shopify ecosystem hints that Shopify is up to something much more lucrative than the Kit Skills. It’s nothing to worry about as the move is a planned one, and surprises are on their way.
Shutting down Shopify Kit and Shopify Ping will tentatively be flushed from the internet wef 1st September 2021. Merchants in supported countries can use text/SMS to chat with Kit until 31st August.
It’s our humble suggestion that you should look into it and if you have any mention of the Shopify Kit in your app or app-related materials, kindly amend it by the earliest.
We were offering Kit services for Walmart and Etsy marketplaces, and they will no longer be available after 1st April 2021.
Let’s hope we get to experience something one of a kind from Shopify. Apologies for this sudden inconvenience.
Before Shopify Kit gets Dissolved, Here’s What it was Best Known For –
Shopify Kit served as a free-of-charge virtual employee who was always there to help Shopify sellers grow their eCommerce business.
Kit Skill is an app extension for the Shopify app, delivered to the merchants through Kit as an actionable conversation. Through Shopify Ping or SMS, merchants used to interact with the Kit.
Shutting down Shopify Kit along with Shopify Ping might be a sudden eye-opener. Still, at the same time, SaaS giant Shopify is sure up to something more collaborative and resourceful than Kit and Ping. It’s a humble request to stay in touch with Shopify’s update about the same to avoid any last-minute chaos.
