Shopify is an e-commerce platform that helps you create an online store and sell your products. It has a lot of themes that you can use to create your e-commerce store.

Let us see the methods in a detailed guide explained below.


Shopify is a Canadian company introduced in 2006. As we all know, Shopify is used to create an online store but before that, it was itself an online store with the name Snowdevil where they used to sell Snowboards.

With Shopify, you can create a whole e-commerce store without writing a single line of code.

There are many themes available (free and paid) that you can use to create an online store for your business.

You can sell anything on Shopify from book to music tapes, from clothes to organic vegetables anything. Just create an account on Shopify and get started with your online e-commerce store.

Shopify puts powered by Shopify in the footer of the themes to let the users know that it is a Shopify website and it’s trustworthy.

However, many people think that all websites on the internet, created on Shopify are drop-shipping websites and they just leave the website as soon as they see powered by Shopify on the website.
