How to set up a Shopify store
Setting up a Shopify store is pretty easy, the steps involved in setting up your Shopify store are listed below.
Step 1. Sign Up with Shopify
All you have to do is visit Shopify.com. Click on “Get Started” which will redirect you to the signup form to create an account.
Fill in the required details (store name, email address and password) on the signup form and click “Create your store”
Your store name has to be unique as Shopify will not accept a store name that has been used by an existing store owner.
When you are done with creating your store, you will be redirected to another page where you will need to fill more details like your name, address, country, and contact number.
