There are the steps that you have to take to integrate your website with Shopify successfully. 

Adding Products

  • From your Shopify admin, click Products to go to the Products page.
  • From the Products page, click Add product.
  • Enter a title for your product, along with additional details.
  • Click Save! 

Build Product Collections

Having product collections will make it easier for your customers to find products by category. Examples of some categories that can be created are - Women's clothes, Men's shoes, Accessories. 

Shopify allows you to create two collection types:

  • An automated collection uses selection conditions to automatically include matching products. You can define as many selection conditions as you want, and you can also specify whether products must meet all conditions or any condition to be included in the collection. When you add a new product that matches the selection conditions for a collection, it will be automatically added to the collection.
  • A manual collection includes the products you add. The collection always contains the same products unless you add or remove them.

If you're unsure, go with the manual collection! But it may be quite a bit of work if you have many items. 

  • From your Shopify admin, go to Products > Collections.
  • From the Collections page, click Create collection.
  • Enter the details for the collection.
  • Click Save collection.
