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. A well known website called Shopify has made it easier for business owners to create site for their businesses online in just a few minutes.
If you are officially ready to set up your own Shopify store, read on. Listed below are some of the most important steps that you’ll have to take in order to successfully start your own Shopify store.
1. Start By Registering For Shopify
First of all, you’ll need to register on Shopify’s platform and pick a name for your shop.
You have to make sure that you will be able to pick a name that’s unique, but also short and easy to remember. At the same time, make sure that the name will relate to the goods that you will be selling but at the same time can also adjust with your business if you ever plan to expand.
After you register, a 14 day trial is offered by the platform but once it expires, you will have to pick a plan for your business. 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.
If you are truly planning on creating a successful Shopify store, then you’d want to use your own domain name as it will be able to help you to appear more professional. But you also have to remember that in choosing which domain name to use, you’ll have to take your time.
To be able to buy a new domain, you’ll have to navigate from the dashboard of your Shopify and into the “Domains” section where you will find “Buy New Domains”.
You may also choose to buy your domain later on. However, until you do, the url of your shop will be [storename].myshopify.com.
3. You Will Need To Fine-Tune Your Settings
The next step is to go into the “Settings” section of your Shopify store. On this page, you’ll need to edit your titles as well as your meta description in order to ensure that the SEO of your shop is starting off good.
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 A Theme For Your Shop
The next step is to choose a name for your very own shop. The theme for your business will become the “shell” of your shop, which will then potentially affect the look of the entire page.
5. Editing Your Pages and Policies
6. Add Your Products and Categories
Finally, the moment has come for you to add in your products and categories. Go into the “products” section and then click in “Add Product” for you to start.
From here, you will have to fill in some details about the products that you will be selling.
After Creating Your Own Shopify Store, It Is Only the Beginning
