Do you dream of having your own online store? Are you looking for a new skill to add to your skillset? Would you be interested in selling your own web design or theme? Well, with Shopify you could do all three of these things.
What Exactly is Shopify?
You've probably seen the online ads popping up on Facebook. Shopify is a software which allows individuals to design online stores. So instead of opening a store on Amazon, eBay, Etsy or another similar site, you can now have your own online store.
This will allow you to keep more of your money and not have to pay out the seller's fee. You can still post links to your website, Amazon, eBay, Etsy or any other that you may have to your Shopify store.
So actually with Shopify, there are five ways you could make money:
- Learn the skill and create your own store and sell your wares.
- Learn the skill and offer it to business owners via Upwork, Freelancer, People Per Hour or your own website.
- Become an affiliate partner and offer the program via an affiliate link.
- Become a partner and share in the client revenue.
- Design your own theme and try to sell it to Shopify.
For those wishing to build their own store by themselves, Shopify offers over 100 designs or allows you to design your own using CSS or HTML. If you chose to use Shopify for designing your online store, you will be given several tools that you can use. Some of the tools are:
- 24/7 support
- marketing and SEO
- analytics and reports
- web hosting
- shipping help
- shipping options
- mobile app
- ability to accept payments
- analytics and reports
Obviously, the tools will vary with the plan you choose. Plans start at $9 a month and can go up to $179 a month.
How Much Money Can You Make With Shopify?
Again, it really depends upon what you are doing with or selling with Shopify. As previously mentioned, there are five ways to make money on Shopify. All could be very lucrative for you.
With the affiliate plan, you can earn up to $2,400 per month. The average person designing an e-commerce theme at 70% commission can earn up to $11,000 a month. App sellers can earn up to $2,000 per month.
So, as you can see, if you have a blog or newsletter you can still make money. Even if you have no desire to open an online store and charge for your products.
Obviously, not everyone makes that much money and it will vary with time and effort put into it.
