Shopify Master Thread
« on: December 07, 2017, 06:01:46 PM »
I see more and more people around me starting with Shopify.
Some make money, some don't. The monetary investment is relatively minimal.

What bothered me personally, is that after 2 weeks of trial, it forces you to pay.
(Sometimes you will receive a little extension)
Especially since it is a side venture, and not full time on it, 2 weeks were way too short, and I really didn't feel like paying before it is even live.

So, I can now arrange  for new Shopify Stores(not for existing ones) to have an Unlimited Trial.
That means that you can open a Shopify store now, without worrying about the short trial period.

Send me a pm before opening the store obviously.

Unlimited Shopify trial.
Trials do have some limitations, such as adding paying apps or so, as once you place a credit card on file, you are in live mode...

So far I don't see something that would hinder that.
I could open one for you now if you want.

Preferably first check if your name is available.
It would be good to reserve it, if you think it is unique:

Go to https://www.shopify.com

Click on "Get Started".

Check, like on below screenshot to see if the name is available.

Do NOT signup if don't want to be stuck with 14 days trial.

If drop-shipping from Ali Express, and want to ship internationally, do you go through 233 zones to check the shipping prices ?

That's what it is. I can barely call it limitations.
The advantages outweighs it's temporary limitations.

However, there are some things that you can't do with a development store until you switch it to a paid plan:

assign a custom domain

process more than 50 orders (although you can create unlimited test orders).

These are serious limitations.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

You can always forward a domain.
If you start selling you have no problem to start paying.
It's all the time you need to get ready that is the issue.

How do you get your shopify sales to sync with your quickbooks and vice versa?

I've been using this until now https://apps.shopify.com/shopify-integrator which was ok at best and lately has been horrible. In store sales are not being synced with the web and web sales are coming in for items that have  already been sold. It's a nightmare :-( what do others do?

I've spoken to shopify and they suggest this app: https://apps.shopify.com/quickbooks-online I reached out to them with this question: "if item A is sold online then the inventory for item A will be reduced by 1 on quickbooks? AND, if item B is sold in store then the iventory on shopify will be reduced by 1?"

I received a very crytic response from them:

Quote
Alexa here from Bold's QuickBooks team, thanks for reaching out!

"Just to confirm your app will take in store sales and reflect that on the web store and vice versa, take web sales and and reflect that on the in store inventory?"
Not necessarily, no - our app is just an export tool. It's meant to export Shopify orders marked Paid or Fulfilled from your store to your QuickBooks account. Inventory tracking and adjustments are indeed a part of this process and will deduct properly if set up properly - I'll outline this for you below.

The app tries to match the products based on its settings in the app admin. So, Shopify admin > Apps > QBO > Settings > Match by SKU or match by Product Title / Variant Title.

If you are wanting to match by SKU, it will match the SKU in Shopify to the item name in QuickBooks. Once matched, it will be saved for future exports. These products will match once exported from a paid or fulfilled order through our app.

We do have a fix for SKU to SKU matching, but it requires you to have all of your products already set up in QBO with the Shopify SKU in the SKU field within QBO. Just let me know when this is done, and I'll apply the fix to your store.

And if you are wanting to match by Product Title / Variant Title, it will append the product name with dash variant name in QuickBooks Online. An example would be: Dog Collar - Orange or T-Shirt - Blue

In short, you need to have products already set up in QBO that match these parameters otherwise it'll create new products on export if nothing matches.
"In other words, if item A is sold online then the inventory for item A will be reduced by 1 on quickbooks? AND, if item B is sold in store then the iventory on shopify will be reduced by 1?"
So, because the app is only capable of exporting orders, it's also only capable of bringing over product data and tracking inventory for products that are included in orders. These orders must be marked as Paid or Fulfilled in order to be eligible for export, too.

So, if you're wanting full Shopify inventory in your QBO account, you'll need to either manually bring it over via CSV export & import, or add all products into draft orders that are marked as Paid or Fulfilled, then export those over to QBO through our app.

For the CSV export & import, Shopify and QuickBooks support, respectively, can help you with that. Here are some links that may be helpful to you for that:

Does anyone have any suggestions? What do others do? Am I the only one using QB?

TIA!
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
