So this theme will only work for shopify?

Yes - this is Shopify only but there is a WordPress version

ok so I bought the wrong theme. Can I return it and buy the WP one?

wordpress version released under another author and you already downloaded the shopify version, so I think shopify theme author will not accept the refund request according to envato refund policy. But you can get in touch with shopify theme author if they can help you. Thanks

If there’s an issue with theme installation then you may get in touch with theme support and have the issue as resolved

I am not having any installation issue. I bought the wrong theme I. Would like to return and buy a different one.

Simply just get in touch with your theme author support and ask them if they provide you refund without any reason ?

Just to be clear the author is not obliged to refund in this case, however that doesn’t mean that they wouldn’t do it
