Thousands of accounts terminated by Shopify for profiteering or making false claims amid COVID-19
E-commerce provider Shopify says it terminated thousands of accounts last month for profiteering or making false claims, while many other merchants offered discounts to try and boost sales as retailers struggled to adjust to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In an update posted on the Shopify website, the company outlined the ways it is helping merchants and customers cope, including offering gift cards or local pickup and delivery, $200 million in loans called Shopify Capital (only available to some U.S. and U.K. clients), and an extension of the company's 14-day free trial to 90 days.
