Have I mentioned lately how much I love Shopify? As a shop owner, web designer and coder, they just keep geting more and more awesome. Two new features have been launched recently that should make things easier for some of you. First up, a mobile theme so you can browse my shop more easily on your phone. I’ll be fancying up the design a bit more when I have time, but it’s all working great. If you prefer to use the usual site design, just click the link at the bottom to swap.
And secondly, customer accounts. I have to say customer accounts was never high on my wish list as I much prefer to check out without an account wherever possible, but I do think it’s a great time saver for any regular buyers. It’s completely optional, so you can still checkout as a guest, but if you do shop regularly, you can create an account to speed up future purchases (your address details will be pre-filled) and to view your orders to see when they’re fulfilled and shipped. I also plan to do some fun things for account holders in future including discounts, pre-orders and other surprises.
If you’d like a customer account, you’ll be offered the option to create one after you’ve checked out your next order – it’s for buyers only.
Let me know if you have any questions, or spot any problems. And if you’re thinking of setting up your own web shop I really can’t recommend Shopify enough. Feel free to email me if you’d like a trial store to play around with – you can play with it free of charge for as long as you like with no fees or obligations
