Shopify is one of the most popular eCommerce platforms in the world, and for good reason. It’s easy to use, has tons of features, and is extremely scalable. Plus, it integrates with a lot of other apps and services, which can make running your online store a breeze.

If you’re thinking about using Shopify to sell your products or services, you’re probably wondering how to enable sales on your Shopify store. In this article, we’ll show you how to do just that.

First, you need to create a Shopify account and set up your store. If you haven’t done this yet, please follow our step-by-step guide on how to start a Shopify store.

Once you have a Shopify account and your store set up, you need to add your products. To do this, go to the “Products” section of your Shopify admin and click “Add product”:

On the “Add product” page, you need to enter the following information about your product:

  • Product name: This is the name of your product that will be displayed on your website and in search results.
  • Product type: This is the type of product you are selling (e.g., physical, digital).
  • Vendor: This is the manufacturer or brand of the product.
  • Variants: These are the different versions of your product that customers can choose from (e., size, color).
  • Images: These are the pictures of your product that will be displayed on your website.
  • Pricing: This is the price of your product.
  • Inventory: This is the stock level of your product.
  • Now that you have added all the necessary information about your product, it’s time to enable sales on your Shopify store. To do this, go to the “Settings” section of your Shopify admin and click “Payment providers”:

    On the “Payment providers” page, scroll down to the “Shopify Payments” section and click “Complete account setup”:

    On the next page, you need to enter some personal and financial information so that Shopify can verify your identity and set up your account. Once you have entered all the required information, click “Activate account”:

    < That’s it! You have now successfully enabled sales on your Shopify store.

    That’s all there is to it! By following these simple steps, you can easily enable sales on your Shopify store so that you can start selling products or services online.

    PRO TIP: If you are planning to enable sales on Shopify, please be aware that there are some risks involved.

    First and foremost, please be aware that Shopify is a platform for online stores, and as such, all transactions are processed through the Shopify platform. This means that your personal and financial information will be stored on Shopify’s servers, and you will be responsible for keeping this information safe and secure.

    Secondly, please be aware that when you enable sales on Shopify, you are responsible for all aspects of the sale, including processing payments, shipping products, and customer service. If you are not prepared to handle these responsibilities, it is best to not enable sales on Shopify.

    Lastly, please be aware that enabling sales on Shopify will require you to pay Shopify’s fees. These fees can vary depending on the plan you choose, but they are typically 2-3% of the total sale price.
