Setting up the website
Getting started with Shopify is easy. After sign-up, you land on your online dashboard where you can add products, pick a website theme, and more. If you’ve built a web store before, you know what to do. But for first-timers, Shopify could provide a little more guidance.
Shopify doesn’t provide any prompts for new users (unlike alternatives such as Wix). So, users might feel a little lost when they’re starting up. Shopify leaves most things up to you.
The user interface of the website editor is a little confusing. It isn’t drag-and-drop, so you’ll have to search through the side menu to find where to edit certain elements.
Additionally, users can access the (very limited) blog editor through the browser dashboard. Here, you can publish posts, align text, add bullet points, and comb over SEO settings. Oddly enough, we noticed that there is no undo button in the editor (a very strange thing leave out). For any users that code, an HTML editor is also available. It’s a nice touch that allows more freedom to those who want it.
