Creating a Shopify Account

When you are starting a Shopify project with us there are a few things that you will need to do before we can start working on your project.
Navigate to the Shopify website, and click on the Get Started button. Fill in your desired email address, password and store name. Remember, you’re going to need to choose a unique name for your store, otherwise Shopify won’t allow you to purchase the domain.

Once you have created an account, there is some onboarding to fill out too. This includes your businesses address details, and some other bits of general information about your business.
It is at this point that you will then be able to access the admin area of your website.

Set up Billing Details

Shopify allows you to run your website in a trial mode for 14 days. Once this period is over, you will need to pick a plan that suites your businesses requirements.
Before you can choose a plan, you need to enter some billing / payment details in your account. This is where want any costs to be taken from by Shopify. These costs include Shopify monthly plan fee, any paid Apps that include a monthly fee and any one-off payments in your account e.g. for the purchase of a theme.
To do this, follow these instructions:

  1. - Login to the admin area of your account
  2. - Click 'Settings'
  3. - Click 'Billing'
  4. - Click 'Add Payment Method'
  5. - Fill out the required fields
  6. - Giving Nouwn access to your Shopify account

Once you have completed the above steps, your account is now ready for us to begin work on it. You will need to let us know what your Shopify URL is, and then we can request access to your account from our own developer account.

Sometimes, a 'collaborator request code' is required. If this is the case, you will need to provide us with this also. The code can be found with the following instructions:

  1. - Login to the admin area of your account
  2. - Click 'Settings'
  3. - Click 'Plans and Permissions'
  4. - Scroll to the 'Permissions' section
  5. - If you have 'Collaborator request code' enabled, you will see this 4 digit code in a field.
  6. - Copy this code and send it over to us.

Building the Store

Now that you've setup an account in Shopify - we can start your store as a web design agency. Visuals, references, directions, ideas can all be discussed in the brief and zoom calls.

Going Live

This is the most exiting part of the process! We will help you build your store and ready to start your ecommerce journey!

If you have any issues / questions about any of the above, you can always email us and we will be happy to help you out.
