Establishing an Online Presence using Shopify

Establishing an Online Presence using Shopify

Millions of merchants are using Shopify to power their ecommerce businesses. It's the most powerful, flexible and scalable platform on the market, which means you can build a beautiful online store without having any coding knowledge. In just minutes, you'll be able to set up your business selling products from anywhere in the world.

Open a Shopify store in minutes.

Shopify is an e-commerce platform that allows you to easily set up an online store, including payment processing and shipping. Shopify gives you the tools to create a professional website that can be viewed on any device. You can start with a free 14-day trial of Shopify or pay a monthly fee for the service.

If you want to sell online quickly and easily, consider using Shopify as your e-commerce platform.

Choose from hundreds of starter themes or start from scratch with your own design.

You can choose from hundreds of starter themes or start from scratch with your own design.

You can hire a designer to create a custom theme for you, or use the Shopify design tool to create your own theme. The Shopify design tool lets you design your store in minutes, but if you need help with more advanced functions like product categories and collections, let us know and we’ll be happy to walk you through it!

Edit your theme's code with no restrictions.

The theme editor is located in the admin section of your store. You can edit all of your store's themes to make changes, or you can create new themes from scratch.

Customize a theme to match all aspects of your brand and product line. With no restrictions on the amount of code you can add to your theme, you have unlimited freedom to create something that perfectly matches what you want for your store.

You can use any code editor that works with Shopify. You can use a built-in code editor called Liquid Builder as well as third party apps such as CodeKit and VS Code Extensions for Shopify that include hundreds more features than Liquid Builder gives us out-of-the box including:

  • Live previewing while editing files (vs having to refresh each time)

  • Auto completion & validation while typing code like HTML tags with clever autocomplete suggestions

Use the visual editor to make changes to your website's layout and design without touching code.

When you create a new website and add pages to it, Shopify automatically includes a sample page called "About Us." This page is meant to show how the product will appear once you publish it. It's where you can edit the information about your company, or any other details that have been entered into the system.

If you're comfortable with code, then this may be enough for you and we recommend sticking with the default settings in order to save time and energy for other tasks. However, if you're not familiar with HTML or CSS but would still like more control over how your pages look and feel on mobile devices (e.g., smartphones), tablets—or even desktop computers—we recommend using the visual editor instead of coding everything from scratch each time one needs updating!

Get paid fast by taking advantage of Shopify Payments' low transaction fees and rate.

The Shopify platform allows you to accept credit card payments. If you have the Shopify Payments add-on enabled, the checkout process will include a Pay button and all of your customers' information will be saved on the back end so they don't have to enter it again. This is more convenient for both you and your customer, which leads to happier customers who are more likely to return.

Shopify Payments is an integrated solution that offers lower transaction fees than other payment gateways, making it easier for you to profit from every sale and giving your business a competitive edge.
