Do you want a rundown of how to get your store up and running and how to maximize the features available on Shopify?
• How to choose and customize your Shopify theme
• How to add your financial details to get paid
• How to add and manage products
• How to integrate other applications
• How to organize how you ship product, manage inventory and observe taxes

Good news is, tools like Shopify make it easy and fun too!
