Picking the Right Account for Your Business
With Shopify you can choose to start with a 14 day free trial, which allows you to use almost all the features other than a few paid extra features. After your 14 day trial, you can pick from the following choices.
The two best choices are basic and pro, and will likely be perfectly good for anything you want to do with your business. If you pick the first one, the 9 dollar one, you will likely miss out on some of the better social media marketing features.
Setting Up Your Account
Getting started with setting up your account is simple. Start your free trial by filling in the information.
Fill out the information asked for.
Give a lot of thought to the store name and email address that you want to use because it will become part of your store. When you first start, you don’t have to provide a payment method but try to answer all the questions you can accurately.
When you’re done, you’ll get an email with some of the information and a link to your store. Until you upgrade, the link will be a long ugly link. When you upgrade you’ll be able to share a link to yourdomain.com.
The Right Account Settings
It’s important to activate the online store setting so that products will show up online and so that you can enable digital downloads.
This part is very important so that you can sell items online. Otherwise, it will only work as a point of sale system at a physical store location. The online store launch is important whether you sell physical products or not. It’s the only way you can list them online and the only way you can activate many of the features.
