Let's Build a Shopify Store Together.

Okay, so at this point, I’m assuming you have decided on whether or not to use WordPress/Woocommerce, Wix or Squarespace.
Side note: I’m beginning to like Wix’s pricing and performance improvements, but will always recommend Shopify over the options out in the wild.

Create a Shopify account

First, Let’s create a new Shopify Store.

Shopify offers a free 14-day trial. If you need help during that period, feel free to reach out.

Once you filled up the necessary information about your store, You’ll have your online store dashboard in front of you.

And just like that, an eCommerce Store has been created.

The Dashboard should have all you need to run your store.

You're off to a great start.

There are a few tasks you'll need to complete to get your store up and running.

Add products

Adding products to your store can be done easily with a few steps.

Title, description, media, pricing, and other aspects relating to each product. Try not to skip filling up some information about your products.

Design your online store

Shopify provides a variety of free and premium themes to select from. Once you have theme selection out of the way, go ahead and update your web pages. Watch out for the featured collection part. You can create collections for the home page under products in the dashboard. knfrmd - Create a Collection on Shopify

Add a domain

This part could be tricky, this is why I'll recommend using Google Domains. The sync with these two is awesome.

Google Workspace offers a custom domain and secure business email and other useful features.

Review your settings

This is one of the best parts of Shopify for me. Everything you'll need is here. From payment provides, to customizing the checkout, taxes, locations, notifications and much more.

Don't forget to select a plan

Now that you have your store initial set up done, don't forget that your free-trial is only 14 days long. knfrmd - Select a shopify plan
