How to use Shopify
Everything that follows will help in successfully creating a new online store on Shopify –
a). Sign Up –At Shopify.com, create an account through sign up. Click ->Start free trial
b). Set Up your store – Customize your e-commerce store, add shipping and payment information, and products to sell.
c). Get your own theme and layout – There are two types of themes on Shopify – Free and Premium.
Free themes offer modifications without making any changes to the code and you are looking at a superb looking store to start your business. However, premium themes offer comparatively more modifications than free themes.
Select the theme and apply it to the store. Shopify allows the user to preview before finalizing. Also changing the theme is also possible if unsatisfied. Store owners also get to customize the existing theme to take charge of the store’s basic functionality. The platform offers tons of functionalities ensuring that no two stores look alike.
d). Add products – Adding a product on Shopify store requires the business to add name, pictures, URL and product description. It is important to add all the details to help customers take the best decision about their purchase. Grouping of products is another way to enhance store popularity. It helps customers locate the product without having to browse the entire product list.
e). Adding payment gateways –It is vital for businesses to set up and provide the world’s most reliable method to transact payments. This ensures the reliability of customers in e-commerce businesses. Moreover, it is essential to pay heed to the commission as well as product charges, not forgetting attractive offers these payment gateways have for their customers.
f). Use Analytics for tracking success – Just before going live, it is time to use Google Analytics to track down the number of visitors your store is getting.
g). Include taxes – Do charge taxes if needed.
h). Shipping is quintessential – Just as customer satisfaction is prime, Shipping is equally important. Often businesses lose quite many customers only because they have limited shipping options or higher shipping costs. Shopify allows setting shipping charges as per the specifications of your product offering.
i). Last, the Domain –Go live with a domain name. People may buy it from the platform or they will have it automatically in your store. People may also buy a domain from the third party. However, that would be full of hassles as in that case redirecting the DNS becomes a pre-requisite.
Shopify is one of the easiest shopping platforms to set up and use. But, as easy as Shopify is, running an online store takes a lot of time and know-how. If you find yourself short on either of these, Shopify Partners and Experts may be a good way to go.
