Step 7: Paste copied TXT value from Privy
In the Name field please paste the Host information that is found in Privy, and paste the expected value to the TXT value field.
Remove your domain from the host, in this example we removed .privydomaintest.com from scph1218._domainkey.privydomaintest.com - This also includes the period to the left of your domain:
Step 8: Add CNAME record
In the Name field please paste the Host information that is found in Privy, and paste the expected value to the CNAME "points to" field
Remove your domain from the host, in this example we removed .privydomaintest.com from s1._domainkey.privydomaintest.com - This also includes the period to the left of your domain:
Step 9: Complete entering all values
Your DNS setup should look like this after you have entered all the values from Privy into Shopify:

Please allow for 48 hours to pass.
If records have not verified after 48 hours please do the following:
- Contact your web host
