Let's Get Started!
Registering an AIC account
To access your Project Dashboard, you will need an AIC account. An AIC account also let’s you do a lot of things including opening a support ticket. Please note that username cannot be change after registration. We recommend using a secure password that does not exist anywhere else, using a password generator like our SPG would greatly improve your account security.
Linking your AIC Account with your project
You will need to link your project with you AIC account before you can access it through Project Dashboard. Fill up this form and we will link your project with you account.
If you haven’t already provided us, we will just need a few things from you to get started. Depending on the project the things we need might differ, your project lead should already asked for the specific contents from you if not ask them what they need from you. You can either email the content to your project lead or submit it using the form below.
Submit the content requested by your project lead here or just email them back.

We will just need some information about you to get started
New Shopify Store
Shopify require us to obtain some information about you and your business to create a store, please fill in the form here to get started.
New Shopify Plus
Shopify Plus requires a vetting process from Shopify. We are required to collect these information for the vetting process. The more information you provide us, the better chance you have at getting approved. But don’t worry, we have not been in a situation where the request has been denied yet. You would often get a faster approval when applying with a Shopify Partner, but this can take a while and we hope you understand.
