1. Start By Registering For Shopify
First of all, you’ll need to register on Shopify’s platform and pick a name for your shop.
Be sure to pick a business’ name that’s short and is easy to remember, but at the same time different and unique. At the same time, make sure that the name you choose for your online business will relate to the products that you are planning to sell but also be able to grow with your shop if you ever plan to expand.
After registering, a 14 day trial will be offered by Shopify but after that, you will need to pick a plan for your shop. The plan that will be ideal for beginners would most likely be The Basic Shopify plan.
You should be able to see the details in full on the platform’s pricing page which will also contain different options to choose from.
2. Buying Your Domain
