For those who opened the Shopify website today, you must have noticed that Shopify is not working properly. Unbelievable but it did happen! Shopify and many websites crashed.
When opened earlier in the day, the Shopify site showed a 500 network service error.
You are not alone. Take a look at Reddit and Twitter posts and you’ll see that everyone is experiencing this problem.
Why is Shopify Down?
