A: This will almost certainly result in a cease and desist letter from Shopify. While you may be able to use "Shopify" in explaining the services that you offer, you will not be able to use it in your business name. I would highly suggest consulting a trademark attorney to come up with a suitable name for your business before you get into legal trouble.
