Step 2: Choose a Name for your Shopify store
Now just choose a Shopify store name as per your preference and availability.
For present discussion let us take a name as ‘Abc Products’.
Step 3: Add some credentials
In this step, you need to add some basic credentials like your address so that Shopify can mention payment address when calculating the tax.
Step 4: Give your Shopify Store a custom design
Now you have a simple and easy to use dashboard in front of you. You can now start designing the store.
Step 5: Select a theme of your preference
Shopify offers hundreds of design templates, or themes to choose from designing your store. After choosing a theme you can always tweak them for a custom look and feel.
Step 6: Bring changes to the theme as per your liking
Shopify themes are always customizable and you can always tweak them to your preference in look and style. For instance, you can use a Hero image of your liking and design the logo on top of it.
Step 7: Now add the first product
Now you need to go back to your dashboard and then just click on the ‘add a product’ button.
Step 8: Provide a name and description of your product
At this step, you need to provide a name and a brief description of your product.
A good description is a must for convincing customers.
Product description must be unique for achieving search ranks as well.
Step 9: Boost your product page with some stunning images
Upload some high-quality images of your product that can quickly grab attention. Remember, eye catchy product images are important for ensuring conversion.
Step 10: Now add the price of the product and inventory
Now at this step add a price tag for the added product and check the ‘charge taxes’ box allowing Shopify to calculate exact sales tax based on the address.
At this stage, you should also designate a product with a serial number referring to ‘SKU’ (stock-keeping unit).
This will help to keep track of your products sold or left.
Step 11: Provide exact weight of the product
The shipping cost of the product will be calculated by Shopify based on the customer’s location and also the weight.
So specify the weight of your product.
Step 12: Mention variants of the products in size, colour, etc.
In case your product comes with various options size, color, designs, etc. specify the variants available for each product.
When adding the variants is finished hit the Publish button and your product is automatically added to the store.
Step 13: Create the online store domain name
You need to appear like a distinct brand and for this, you need to add a custom store domain name.
Step 14: Buy the chosen domain through Shopify
When you have selected a domain name based on preference and availability it’s time to buy it.
You can buy it either through Shopify or you can add a domain already registered with a third party seller.
Step 15: Add payment avenues for customers to buy
Just go to the Settings >> Payments and select the preferred methods of making payment.
You can choose PayPal and in addition to that can also choose Shopify Payments option to accept credit card payments directly.
You can also choose from an array of ‘alternative payments’ like Amazon, BitPay, and CoinBase.
Now, just hit the Publish button and your online store is ready for the customers to see your product and buy.
Now, add more products and with every subsequent addition try to boost search ranks as well.
