Shopify is a powerful yet accessible eCommerce platform, and creating an online store with it is an easy task to accomplish. In this course I’m going to walk you through all the steps necessary to get an online store up and running with Shopify.

1. Introduction

1.1 Welcome

Hey, Welcome back to Envato Tuts+, I'm Adi Purdila. And in today's course, you're going to learn how to build an online store with Shopify. You might have heard about Shopify, it's an e-commerce platform. Now we're going to start from the beginning with this project. We're going to sign up for Shopify, we're going to create our store, add products. And finally, do a little bit of customization. The great part about all of this is that you don't need any kind of coding knowledge. Shopify allows you to create a store, a fully functional store, without ever having to write a single line of code, which is just awesome. Now before we get started, we have a little bit of planning to do, just to speed up the entire process. That's coming up in the first lesson of this course. So I'll see you there.

1.2 Planning Your Online Store

Before doing any kind of work inside the Shopify platform, I think it's always a good idea to plan things ahead. Now you should spend a lot of time at this critical stage because, even if you are eager to getting to building the store and seeing it live and stuff, spending some more time in the beginning will just save you a lot of time later on. Just fixing stuff, realizing that maybe this isn't what I want, or maybe I forgot something. And I've built my entire store around something that was flawed from the beginning. So that's not good, it's just gonna waste a lot of time and potentially money. So take a day, two or three, a week if you have to, in the beginning, plan things out, lay them out properly, make sure you set as much as you can right from the get go. Now in this course, what I'm going to show you is, or I'm gonna show you a more technical, the more technical aspect of creating a store with Shopify. So the planning that we're gonna do for this demo project, in the end, is not gonna be that complicated. So there are a couple of questions that we need to ask ourselves before creating the shop. So the store name will be ToyzForPets. And spelled like this, ToyzForPets, because we will be selling toys for dogs and cats. Product categories, well, that's gonna be really simple. Toys for dogs, and then toys for cats. Estimated number of products, so, of course, on your particular project you should know already just how many products you wanna sell, right? Because this is a demo, let's go with something like 20 products or less than 20 products. And will I have a blog? Yes, we will have a blog. All right, so that's pretty much all of the planning that we're gonna do for our demo project. Now we have some idea of what we need to do. The next step is to jump right into the shop, what? [SOUND] [LAUGH] Is to jump right into the Shopify platform, create the store or sign up, and then create the store. We're gonna do that in the next lesson. See you there.
