The Basics / Preparing to Create Your Shop

Before you start building your store, it is advisable to prepare necessary materials ahead of time, as this can be a time-consuming exercise to get everything together. Necessary material:

  • Photos of products being sold in the online store
  • Product titles
  • Product descriptions

Lastly, you'll need to figure out the structure when setting up your shop, by creating certain categories for the different types of products you'll be selling (e.g. hoodies and t-shirts in the "Apparel" category, socks and mugs in the "Accessories" category).

Categories "Apparel" and "Accessories"

Creating a Category structure will help your customers browse your online shop.
