Here are the five shopify tips hacks and tricks that you probably didn’t know that will help you increase sales and make your life that much easier on shopify.
The first tip is to do with one of your most important sections of your shopify store, the checkout page. Now, if you’ve ever sold anything online, you probably know that the checkout page is literally the arc nemesis of all e-commerce stores.
Why is that? Well? Because, on average, with e-commerce stores, seven out of ten people will not end up making the purchase through the checkout page. That is a lot of people, and i know many of us experience this, including myself, where we get a lot of add to cart but no actual sales and no clue why this actually happens to help remedy this on all shopify approved themes.
There’s, actually an option to include checkout nodes now checkout notes really helps to provide customers with ease of use to allow them to provide notes to you as a seller before they check out, and this provides trust and in doing so helps them Push them through the funnel to check out and best of all this is completely easy to implement without any shopify coding changes i’ll.
Show you how to do this. The first thing you’re going to do is head to online store. Then themes once you’re on this page, you’re, going to customize your current theme. Now this works on debut and a few other themes.
I believe it doesn’t work on simple and supply, so you have to do a test on your theme so, on your theme, click customize at the top click cart. Then from cart. You’re gonna head over to the left hand, side, click, cart page and you’ll, see in the settings part that you can click to enable cart, notes that that’s.
What we want and then click save and then you’ll, be able to see a add to note to your order section here. So it’s. Actually as simple as that, no custom coding required and you ‘ Ve got your notes section available, and this is something i would turn on regardless of whether or not you need it, because you never know when a customer might want to make a note with their order, and this just helps with conversion rates, with your shopify store.
Overall, the next feature is something that’s extremely useful for those who are just starting out and creating their new business online when starting a new ecommerce business. We all need legal documents, such as general terms and conditions, return policies and shipping policies.
Now these documents, when starting out, can set you back anywhere between a thousand to three thousand dollars per document. They are needed in the long term. However, you know most people don’t have these types of funds when they’re just starting out.
The good news is shopify comes to the rescue, with free integrated templates in the back end of shopify. So we’re. Going to start in the settings page under settings, you can see here there’s, a legal option.
Ll see the exact template here and, of course, you need to update the template to make sure that it fits with your current store. You can do the exact same thing for all the templates here and it’s as simple as that.
By the way, i’ll jump in here and add that a common question that i’ve got over the years is why isn’t there, a custom policy or template for shipping policies. Now that’s, because shipping policies just widely vary way too much to provide a template for, and it differs from country to country, with different shipping laws etc.
For those drop shipping on shopify, i’ve, provided a full epacket template shipping terms and faq template that you can easily plug and play in my mastery program. So go check that out. The next shopify tip, hack and trick is an absolute doozy and my personal favorite way to find products, spy in stores and get marketing ideas, so shopify actually hosts a platform called shopify exchange, and this is a place where you’re able to list Your own shopify store or drop shipping store onto an exchange marketplace for others to see to be able to buy your store.
I find the shopify exchange marketplace to be frankly, a superpower, because you get loads of information on both drop shipping and e-commerce stores, including information like how much revenue they make the products that they sell.
Even the expenses head on to the main shopify page and scroll all the way down and underneath supports you’ll, see websites for sale click onto it. Then you head on to shopify exchange marketplace. This is the place where you ‘
Ll find all the listings and you can see all sorts of stores, click on browse all stores and you’ll, see all these different parameters. Now you can sort through price revenue, business type and industry.
I find that a lot of these stores are actually drop. Shipping stores, so i don’t really bother with business type, although i do niche down via industry and, of course, revenue. So let’s. Take a look at two thousand five.
Two thousand five hundred dollars all the way to fifteen thousand dollars, plus in monthly revenue and let’s, go into industry, for example, and let’s, click onto fashion apparel and then you’ll, be able to see all Sorts of different stores, so you can see here that if we take a look at this, the this store is making 7900 in revenue per month and they’re.
Getting twelve thousand uh unique users per month and their profit margin, as is at a very high, sixty percent, so the average profit per month is five thousand seven hundred with 381 sales per month.
Now this is shopify verified, uh data, so you can’t sort of spoof this and they even list out expenses here. So this is a great way to find products find stores and even find marketing strategies. It’s, also a great way to exit your business.
