Free Guide to Setting Up Your Shopify Store
Enter your email
First, all you need to do is enter your email address to get started in the field provided. When you’re done, click “Start free trial.”
If you want email @yourdomain.com, consider G Suite from Google.
Provide a few more details
Next, you’ll need to pick a secure password and give your store a name. If you’re not sure what to call it yet, try entering the products you plan to sell or a temporary name. You can always change the store name later.
After this, Shopify will start creating your store. It may take a minute or so to complete this process, so sit back and relax…
Take a quick survey
Next Shopify will ask you a few quick questions. We recommend filling this out accurately, because Shopify will provide you with free resources to help you based on these answers. In most cases you can leave the checkbox about clients unchecked.
If you prefer, you can skip this step.
Add your address
Now, enter your address. This address most likely should be the one that’s on your bank account. You can update it later and prevent customers from seeing it.
This step is required — and it’s needed so you can get paid!
When you’re done, click “Enter my store.”
Welcome to your Shopify admin!
You should now see your store’s admin. There’s lots to click on and see — and Shopify provides a guide to adding your first product and more.
Pick a Shopify theme
By default, if you click “Online Store” on the left toolbar and then pick “Themes,” you see Shopify has installed “Debut” for you. This is the default and free Shopify theme — and it’s great if you’re just getting started. However, for a more advanced look you may want to consider a premium Shopify theme.
