What is Shopify?
Shopify is an online ecommerce platform that allows anyone to easily create, manage, and run an online store.
How much does it cost to use Shopify?

Do I need a credit card to start a Shopify trial?

Do I need a business license to sell on Shopify?
According to Shopify - “Depending on the type of business you run, you may need a local, county, state, or federal license - or none at all. Where your company is located will determine the type of license you need and where to obtain it.”
Can I use PayPal on my Shopify store?
Yes, store owners can accept payments via PayPal through their Shopify stores.
How many products can I sell on Shopify?
Shopify doesn't limit the number of products you can have on your online store. You can sell unlimited products on every Shopify plan.

What is not included in your service?
We provide you with all the tools and resources that you would need to launch your online store quickly and headache-free. That being said, because we only charge a one-time fee, there are a couple of features that are not included in our service.
We do not:
1. Provide personal support after the transfer of ownership.
2. Create your account on the suppliers' websites.
Do you provide supplier details?
Yes. If you're looking to start a dropshipping store, we'll provide you with a vetted list of reliable and fast dropshipping suppliers. These suppliers have been tested thoroughly to meet the high standards required by your customers.
Please note, these suppliers work independently and have their own acceptance policy and terms of service. We have no control over this, and hence, cannot guarantee your acceptance on behalf of these suppliers.
When will I get my store?
72 hours. We believe in quality and speed. Once you have made the payment, we will do our best to deliver the store as soon as possible, without compromising the quality. That being said, with our previous orders, the delivery time averages around 48 hours.
Will you teach me how to run my store?
Our bundle includes a starter guide created for this purpose alone. It will help you understand the intricacies of ecommerce, dropshipping, and Shopify, allowing you to run your store on your own.
Will I have 100% ownership?
Absolutely. When we deliver the store to you, we transfer the ownership rights. You become the sole owner of the store.
Will I be able to manage my store on my own?
Yes. The user-friendly store interface makes it effortless for anyone to manage the storefront. Additionally, we also provide you with a starter guide to make it even easier to manage your store.
I am buying the bundle. What else do I need to start?
A Shopify plan. We provide you with everything you need to start your Shopify store. But for our theme to work, you must subscribe to a Shopify plan.
