Why is your Store Unavailable?
When you try to access your store and you see the line “We’ll be back soon”, that shows that your store is unavailable.
There are lots of reasons why your store might go down. A server at Shopify might have gone down or the hosting technology might have been affected. However, there are other elements that might have also had issues. Sometimes apps/themes can cause issues on your store.
Some signs that your store is having problems early on might be:
- Pages are displaying as blank.
- Your store pages can’t be clicked upon.
- Certain features cause unexpected results.
- Customers struggle to add items to a basket.
Normally, these problems are nothing to do with Shopify itself, but rather a theme/app customization. You might be able to solve this problem by uninstalling apps, restoring a backup, hiring a developer or using other Shopify emergency tips.
