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 now ready to launch your very own Shopify store, continue on reading. We’ll go over the most basic and important steps that every client should take in order to create a Shopify store.
First and foremost, you will have to register on the platform of Shopify and type in the name of your business.
Be sure to pick a business’ name that’s short and is easy to remember, but at the same time different and unique. 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.
After registering, a 14 day trial will be offered by Shopify but after that, you will need to pick a plan for your shop. The plan that will be ideal for beginners would most likely be The Basic Shopify plan.
You will be able to see the full details of the various options on Shopify’s pricing page.
2. Purchasing Your Domain
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 of course, you have to take your time in choosing what domain name you’ll use.
To be able to purchase a new domain, you’ll need to navigate from the dashboard of your Shopify account and into the “Domains” section where you will also find “Buy New Domain”.
You can also just purchase your domain in the future. However, until you do, the url of your shop will be [storename].myshopify.com.
3. You Have To Then Fine-Tune Your Settings
The next thing you’ll need to do is to go to 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 should go to the “Payments” section in order to connect to either your Paypal account or bank account with your shop.
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 The Policies and Pages
6. Adding Your Categories and Products
It is then finally the time to add your categories and products. 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 Starting Your Own Store, You Have Only Just Begun
By now, you should be fully aware on how you will be able to start your very own Shopify Store. But, there are still a number of things that you have to accomplish. Now that you officially have started, it’s time to reach towards success!
