Shopify Store Checklist

The checklist to get your store running and makes sales

One of the most common questions I get from new Shopify store owners is "Hey, I just setup my Shopify store but haven't gotten any sales... Do you mind taking a look and giving me a critique?".

Over time i've noticed some common issues that people often make that can severely impact their store's sales. I thought it might be helpful to compile all these into a checklist. This way, people can have something to lookover when setting up their own Shopify stores. I often refer to it myself when setting up my own because its easy to forget the small details.

Without further ado, here's the checklist:

Create your own domain name.
Make a store logo, it doesn't have to be expensive.
Add a trust badge to your product pages.
Create a privacy policy page.
Create a refund policy page.
Create a contact page.
Create a FAQ page, include shipping times.
Create an about us page.
Remove the "Powered by Shopify" footer text.
Add a favicon to your store.
Do not use the default AliExpress descriptions.
Find product photos without the supplier's logo.
Test your checkout flow.
Spend a lot of time on product research.


These are just some of the basics you should always look for before launching your store. Bookmark this page and check it frequently to make sure you aren't forgetting anything!
