How Shopify Works

Ever visited a grocery store with different products on shelves and their price labels? Shopify works the same way. So what's Shopify? It's software that lets your build an online store where you can display your products.

Why Set Up a Shopify Store as a Business?

1. Beautiful Designs and Themes

Shopify has some great themes with designs that are suitable for different brands and industries. So whether you sell physical or digital products, there's a theme for you.

Proposition is always a great way to stand out. And if your business is domiciled in the United States, Canada, or Australia, you can make your business stand out from the competition by offering live tracking of their purchases. You also have an option for discounts. And if you'd like to offer free local delivery, you can choose that as well.
