Tips on Starting Your Own Shopify Store
Are you ready to launch your very own e-commerce shop up on the internet after dreaming of starting a business online?
Just in case you have no idea yet, it has become easier to start and launch an online store that looks professional. Shopify is a well known platform that is making it very easy for their clients to set up their stores online in just a few clicks.
Read on if you are ready to start your own Shopify store. We’ll go over the most basic and important steps that every client should take in order to create a Shopify store.
1. Register For Your Own Shopify Account
First and foremost, you will have to register on the platform of Shopify and type in the name of your business.
Make sure that you pick a short and easy to remember name, but at the same time something that will set you apart from other businesses. At the same time, ensure that the name of your business is relevant to the products that you are planning to sell but can also adjust accordingly to your business if you ever expand.
Once you register, Shopify will offer a free trial that lasts for 14 days but after, you will have to pick a plan. The Basic Shopify plan will be most suitable for a lot of clients who are still beginners.
You should be able to see the details in full on the platform’s pricing page which will also contain different options to choose from.
In order to succeed in creating a successful Shopify store, and in order to look a lot more professional, you will have to use your very own domain name. Of course, in choosing the domain name that you will be using, you will have to take your time.
In order to purchase a new domain, you’ll have to get from your Shopify dashboard and to the “Domains” section, and then into “Buy New Domain”.
You also have the option to purchase your domain in the future. But, until then, the link to your store will appear as [storename].myshopify.com.
3. You’ll Have To Fine-Tune Your Settings
The next thing you’ll need to do is to go to the “Settings” section of your Shopify store. In this page, you should be able to edit your titles and meta description in order to ensure that the SEO of your store is off to a good start.
Also, you should protect your storefront with a password which ensures that no one will be able to buy a product from your store until it’s ready.
After, you will have to go into the “Payments” section in order to connect to either a bank or Paypal account with your store.
4. Choose Your Store’s Theme
The next step is to choose a name for your very own shop. The theme of your shop will become the overall “shell” of your business which will potentially affect the look of your entire site.
5. Editing Your Pages and Policies
6. Add Your Categories and Goods
Finally, the moment of adding your categories and goods has come. Navigate to the “products” tab and click on “Add Product” in order to start.
From this page, you will then fill in the details about the products that you are selling.
After Starting Your Own Store, You Have Only Just Begun
By this time, you should already be aware on how to create your own Shopify store. But, there are still a number of things that you have to accomplish. Now that you have started, it is about time that you start climbing your way up to success!
