I don’t see the option to close my shop

If you don't see the option to close your shop, you'll need to close any unresolved cases or pay any overdue fees first.

How to close your shop with open orders

If you have open orders, you can put your shop in vacation mode until they're complete. That way your shop is still visible to your buyers, but buyers can’t place new orders.

If you close your shop before resolving your open orders, you can still access your orders and communicate with your customers, but your shop won’t be visible to your buyers.
