I had a major SEO issue with this theme when using the full length description tag. All products with the tag were not being indexed by google, 3 days after switching our indexed products in search console doubled and our daily users increased by 40%

This theme has worked very well for us. In addition, the support we have received from Pixel Union has been superb, professional, and on point. Very happy with the purchase of this template. A special thank you to Euwi, for the assistance!

I purchased this, and our store developed issues where we don't have access to the primary account. We reached out to Pixel Union to get help with the transfer. Shopify told us all we needed to do was download the theme, and then upload it to the new store. We did that and then started working on the theme. We did not even publish before Pixel Union sent us legal notice to take down the theme.

Hi RealyBigGuy team! Pixel Union and Shopify terms and conditions clearly state that using a theme license on more than one shop is not allowed. If a shop is identified as using an unlicensed theme version, it is reported to Shopify. From your review, it looks like Shopify may not have transferred the theme on their end to your new shop. All the best, Pixel Union
