Cloud-based storage service Dropbox has announced that it will end support on July 7 for ‘Dropbox Shops’, a platform that allows creators to sell digital content directly to their customers.
“Support for Dropbox Shops, a feature that was available in beta, will end in 2023,” the company said.
“Starting May 15, 2023, the Dropbox Shop will enter read-only mode. You will no longer be able to create or modify listings and storefronts. Also, customers won’t be able to buy from you. By July 7, 2023, the Dropbox shop will be completely closed.
The company launched the service in open beta in 2022.
The service allowed users to add content directly from Dropbox, set a custom image, audio or video preview, and then list their price.
It also allowed users to create their own e-commerce storefront, edit their profile, and customize their shop URLs to display their products.
In 2022, Dropbox announced a security incident after 130 code repositories were taken over from one of its GitHub accounts using employee credentials stolen in a phishing attack.
The attackers broke into the account on October 14, after GitHub alerted the company of suspicious behavior, which began a day before the notice was given.
