How to find Shopify stores using the IP - myip.ms
One of the methods for finding Shopify stores is through the myip.ms website. When merchants sign up with Shopify the whole ecommerce store will be hosted on the platform. Visit this page and you’ll see the “Shopify Inc.” option is selected and the whole Shopify store list is displayed. When I get stuck with finding Shopify inspiration, I use this method first.
When you look at the list of Shopify stores you can find the famous Shopify Plus powered stores like Fashionnova.com, Gymshark.com, Mvmtwatches.com etc. By default the sorting process is based on the “World Site Popular Rating”.
As a user with not much coding knowledge I’d ask myself how to make sure that websites above are powered by Shopify? In this case, I’d do a manual check with the source code viewing. It’s not really hard to be honest.
Checking the source code with web browser
I’m on the homepage of www.mvmtwatches.com store from Safari browser. In order to check the source code I just press the right mouse click and choose the option “Show Page Source”. Press on that menu item option.
Powered by Shopify sites and Google
Another way to find Shopify based stores is by using Google and the right search combination. This technique I learned from paying attention to the small details at the footer of the Shopify store. You might notice in some stores at the bottom the string “Powered by Shopify”. When you click on this phrase, you’ll be redirected to Shopify.com website.
I decided to give a quick test and google that phrase. However, I was not satisfied with the result and it gave me plenty of articles around that common phrase. So here is the trick, just scroll below a little bit.
The right combination is “site:myshopify.com powered by shopify” search phrase. You’ll see a list of better results from Google Search engine. Notice that the results now are much better and more precise, but you should still double check with the source code to be certain.
Google “site” function and myshopify.com
You might notice that in the search query I have used the “site” command from Google and “myshopify.com” in the search query. Why is that?
Well, let’s start with WHY there must be “myshopify.com”. When you sign up with Shopify there is always the name of your store and .myshopify.com.
Let’s do a quick test.
Combination with the “industry niche” check. Some Shopify Niche Stores.
For drop shipping business who are doing in niche target. Let’s say I want to target to dog evergreen niche. So “site:myshopify.com dog”.
And we see some great examples of Shopify dog stores niche.
V-dog Shopify niche Store
Small thing to pay attention. Use advanced settings of Google such as the Time of page indexing, so you’ll have the different results for more inspirational examples.
Woorank Tool checker method
During the process of finding Shopify store inspiration I have found Woorank web app. It allows you to find websites based on technology they have been using. What I list mostly here is they can help you filter stores based on Country.
I want to find all Shopify stores coming from Singapore. Just checking “Singapore” in “Countries” field and I get the list of it. When you use this web app please keep in mind that sometimes you can find the outdated result which means the store is no longer available. But in general it fits our initial goal with Shopify store examples in Singapore.
Builtwith.com Shopify Stores tool
The last but not least, I’d like to mention Builtwith.com website. You can find not only Shopify websites, but stores from other ecommerce platforms as well. More inspiration from different ecommerce platforms and understand the customization possibilities.
