Shopify is a truly incredible platform. Scalable and responsive, it makes it easy to launch and grow your brand. To make sure you’re getting the most out of it, follow these tips:
Over half of ecommerce traffic is now via mobile device. It's more than having a responsive design; design your site with mobile visitors in mind from start to finish.
Trust Shopify Experts and Shopify Partners
Do all your ecommerce apps integrate well with each other? Review your apps and choose from a suite that are designed to work together, like those from certified Shopify Partners.
Shopify itself has many apps included in even its basic plan. Are you taking full advantage of them?
- Shopify now offers gift cards for free. Activate this feature to start collecting cash.
- Add a live chat feature like Shopify Ping and Shopify Chat to be more accessible to your customers. Engage with shoppers on your site, and answer and address customer concerns right while they’re planning to buy.
Make it speedy
Your site’s performance can make the difference between your customers staying to buy or clicking away to another merchant. Turn on Google Search Console to show you how your site is performing. It might be time to fix what's not working anymore.
- Remove large images from your website to optimize its loading speed.
- Enable Shopify Pay to speed up checkout. Shopify will autofill the information if your customer has shopped with another Shopify merchant.
On your mobile, if you find yourself constantly opening Shopify on your iPhone, simply hold the app down as if to rearrange it and it will quickly display today's sales.
And finally, to be a true Shopify power user, learn your keyboard shortcuts.
