How to Build Your E-commerce Shop with Shopify
- Sep 1, 2018
Shopify is a fully complete ecommerce solution that permits you to set up an online store to sell your goods. To launch your Shopify store, you must sign up for an account.
Sign Up with Shopify
Visit Shopify.com. Use the signup form to create an account. Fill in the required fields and click the ‘Create your store now’ button.
Start Setting Up Your Online Shop
After you’ve signed up you’ll be directed straight to your store admin screen. Now you are ready to start customizing your store, uploading products and setting up payments and shipping.
Choose Your Theme
When you visit the theme store, you’ll have hundreds of themes to choose from. There are a variety of free and commercial themes. Once you’ve decided upon a theme click the ‘Install Theme’ button and confirm by pressing the ‘Publish as my shop’s theme’.
Add Your First Product and Its Description
Open your dashboard and click ‘Add a product’. After adding, create a short description. It’s absolutely important to always write a description for better rankings in search engines. Of course, a perfect product description is essential if you want to convince customers to buy your goods. Choose your words really cautiously and make the product stand out.
Enter Product Weight for Shipping Purposes
Shopify will attempt to calculate shipping price based on the customer’s location and the weight of selected products. You can select ‘manual’ fulfilment to allow choosing shipping by your own.
Add Variants For Size and Color
If your product comes with different options, like a t-shirt in different sizes, Shopify will handle this for you. Just tell it what sizes, colors or fabrics are available for each product.
Set up a domain for your store
Your store's domain is the URL, or the website address, where your customers go to find your online store. You can either buy a new domain for your store or transfer an existing one.
