Can I sell directly from Shopify?

Last updated on September 25, 2022 @ 2:52 am

When setting up your Shopify store, you can sell directly to customers through the Shopify checkout process. This allows you to keep all the sales revenue and eliminates the need to pay Shopify’s commission.

However, there are a few caveats to keep in mind.

First, you’ll need to have a verified account and a valid credit card on file with Shopify. Once you’ve set up your store and verified your account, you can begin creating sales pages and completing checkout processes.

PRO TIP: If you are thinking about selling directly from Shopify, there are a few things you should be aware of. First, Shopify is not a marketplace like Etsy or eBay. This means that you will be responsible for marketing and promoting your own products. Additionally, Shopify does have some listing fees and transaction fees that you will need to factor into your pricing. Finally, make sure you are familiar with the Shopify platform before you start listing products, as it can be tricky to use at first.

Second, you’ll need to create an SSL certificate for your store. This will encrypt the communication between your customers and your store, preventing unauthorized access.

SSL certificates can be expensive, but they’re a necessary step to protect your business.

Finally, you’ll need to be prepared to handle customer inquiries and complaints. If you sell products that contain delicate or hazardous materials, be sure to clearly state these details on your sales pages and provide instructions for customers on how to return them if they’re not satisfied.
