STEP 1: Pick a name

Your Family - - Create A Second Income -

When sign­ing up for Shopify (Shopify.co.za) you’ll be asked for your store name, which will even­tu­ally be the site ad­dress, for ex­am­ple ‘your­store­name.myshopify.com’.

Un­less you’ve called your busi­ness some­thing very in­ven­tive, chances are the name is al­ready taken. Try adding ‘the’ to the be­gin­ning or pre­fix­ing it with ‘store’ or ‘on­line’. You’ll then be asked a lit­tle about your­self and your busi­ness.

Once you’re through to the dash­board you’ll be able to add your own cus­tomised do­main, un­der the ‘add do­main’ but­ton. This means your cus­tomers will be able to find you at ‘your­store­name.com’ in­stead of ‘your­store­name.myshopify.com’.

If you’ve al­ready bought a do­main you’ll be able to con­nect it here. If you don’t have your own do­main yet, you can pur­chase it within the same sec­tion for $14.
