Hello friends, 


I've created this blog for those of you who would like written instructions in addition to the video instruction from our Youtube channel. 


If you'd like to see these lessons in video format, you can go here to watch all the instructional videos created so far. My hope is they will save you a lot of time and headaches setting up your Shopify™ store:

Ok, so let's get started. 


Step 1) Go to Shopify.com in your favorite browser.


Note: Later, I'll recommend Chrome for several reasons that are necessary for functionality. I've been a Firefox user for many years, but Chrome has kind of grown on me since using Shopify™.




Step 2) In the middle of this home page for Shopify™, you'll see a box to enter your preferred email address. Use the email you would like to use for constant communication about your online store. Make sure it's one you'll see constantly because your order notifications will arrive in this email inbox. It's also a great idea to read EVERY SINGLE blog post that Shopify™ sends to your email. The information is so useful, I never ignore their emails. Also visit their Blog on this page every chance you have a free moment. You will find so much great information there about how to run your store. 





NOTE: The fine print below the box where you enter your email address is very important. It says: "Try Shopify free for 14 days. No risk, and no credit card required." I have personally tested this, and it works. Even if I enter my credit card information inside the admin dashboard, they don't charge you for 2 weeks. That's refreshing on the Internet, where almost every business online charges you then forces you to request a refund after you've already paid if the service doesn't fit your needs. 


Step 3) You will be taken to another page where you can create a password for your store. 




Lynne's helpful hint: "For years, I've used a regular, large address book I keep at my desk that I use to write down all my passwords. I put them in the address book alphabetically, and it saves me endless hours of headaches. I write them down with the login name and the web address so I can find them again. It's been a lifesaver to have an offline source of passwords. I use it more than just about anything in my business. It's very easier to lock up or take with you to keep prying eyes out of it."



You will also be asked (in the third box) to name your store. I highly recommend you name your store whatever domain name you already own or the same as a domain you are planning to buy. (The next lesson will show you how to buy your own domain to use on your store if you don't have one) Use your company name for your store, if possible. 



For example: 

Let's say you were planning to buy a domain or use one you already own called: 
Toys4Techies.com

You would type toys4techies in this box. 


This will give you a store located at: 

https://toysfortechies.myshopify.com/admin

Just replace the "toysfortechies" part of this web address with your desired store name, and that's a great web address to create a bookmark for in your browser. You'll be coming back to this address a LOT.
