Any help on this would be appreciated. Far as I can tell this template is not on the main branch?

Aha! I think I see the problem. These changes only seem to be published on a specific tag of the CLI at the moment. Please can you try this command?

npx @sanity/cli@shopify init --template shopify

Hmm, interesting! That only happens for me if I exclude the
tag. Please can you let me know which version of npm you are using?

Okay, thanks. That doesn't seem to be the issue, I just successfully tested using

Please can you let me know the output when you run this command?

npx @sanity/cli@shopify --version

@sanity/cli version 2.24.1

Very peculiar. The issue here is that for some reason the command
npx @sanity/cli@shopify
is not using the
tag for you.
For example, here is the output I see when I run
npx @sanity/cli@shopify --version

@sanity/cli version 2.21.12-shopify.7+43c0621a9

I've installed npm i @sanity/cli@2.21.12-shopify.7 and it's working now

I'm glad you got it working!
should use that version when you run commands such as
npx @sanity/cli@shopify init
. I'm not sure why that's not happening in this case.
