Dropbox to end support for its Shop platform on July 7. Dropbox, a cloud-based storage service, recently announced that it will no longer support ‘Dropbox Shop’. This platform allowed creators to directly sell digital content to their customers. According to the company’s statement, the support for Dropbox Shop, which was previously available in beta, will come to an end in 2023.
Starting May 15, 2023, Dropbox Shop will enter read-only mode. This means that users will not be able to create or modify listings and storefronts. In addition, buyers will be unable to make any purchases.
Dropbox to end support for its Shop platform on July 7
By July 7, 2023, Dropbox Shop will be completely discontinued.
In 2022, Dropbox launched this service in open beta, which allowed users to directly add content from Dropbox. They could set a custom image, audio, or video preview and then list their price. Furthermore, the platform also enabled users to create their own e-commerce storefront, customize their Shop URL to display their products, and edit their profile.

However, in 2022, Dropbox had to announce a security incident where threat actors acquired 130 code repositories from one of its GitHub accounts using stolen employee credentials in a phishing attack. The account was breached on October 14, and GitHub warned the company of suspicious behaviour that began one day before the notice was delivered.
In conclusion, Dropbox Shop will soon be discontinued, but users will still have a few months to take necessary action before the complete shutdown of the service.
