Shopify 101: Intro to Ecommerce and Best Practices

May 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Are you ready to take your business online?

By 2025, it is estimated that 24.5% of all sales will be made via online purchases. Starting a business or bringing an existing business online can seem like a major challenge, but it’s becoming increasingly necessary as online purchases and ecommerce continue to grow.

In this 1-hour session, we’ll introduce the Shopify commerce platform and explore how it offers a simple but robust way to bring your business online, whether you sell online, in-person, or both. You’ll learn about the powerful tools and services Shopify offers, best practices and common challenges faced by new merchants, and leave with some great resources to help you take the next step.

This session is perfect for anyone who has considered: starting a new business or side hustle, bringing their brick and mortar business online, or who is considering switching to Shopify.

In this 1-hour session, you’ll chat with Jordan Nicksy, a Sr. Support Specialist with the Global Partnerships team and experienced ShopifySupport Advisor.

They will discuss:

  • Who is getting into e-commerce
  • How to start a Shopify store
  • What tools and services are available to business owners
  • Best practices and common challenges
  • Resources to help you take the next step!
