What is Shopify?
Shopify is the platform you'll use to create, launch, and operate your website. Think of it as an eBay or Poshmark or Etsy without the marketplace built in - meaning you will pay much lower fees and can do anything you want with your site (and you don't have to share it with other sellers), but you also have to drive the traffic - and provide customer support - yourself.
Shopify offers a ton of apps, resources, and support to do anything you want with your website after you complete our guide for setting up your initial site!
This course does not include the maintenance fees for your website. Once you create your site, Shopify plans start at $29/month (recommended), they take just 2.9% + $0.30 fees on each transaction, and domains are around $12/year depending on your selection.
