Importing store content and data to Shopify

Before you begin, make sure you have created your store on Shopify. If you haven't done so yet, sign up and get ready for an extraordinary online selling experience.

After creating your store, carefully review your existing store. Decide which data and content to transfer to Shopify, being mindful of eliminating old low-performing content. RichClicks is here to help you decide which data to migrate and how to do it efficiently.

Verification and organization of products after import

Once products are imported into Shopify, RichClicks recommends conducting a thorough verification. Check that all information has been imported correctly, from details like price, weight, and inventory to any product variations.

If you encounter common import issues, our team of experts will be by your side to resolve them quickly. Also, check product details, organize them into collections, and understand inventory and transfers.

Optimizing website appearance

With Shopify, you have access to a range of pre-designed themes that can be customized to fit your brand. If you want a different theme, RichClicks will help you add and customize it to meet your specific needs.

Choose from free themes provided by Shopify or explore the Theme Store for paid options. RichClicks offers assistance in customizing both free and paid themes.

Configuring Shipping

Proper configuration of shipping rates and methods is crucial before launch. RichClicks advises you to carefully follow these steps to avoid issues such as incorrect refunds and charges.

Verify your store's address, create shipping zones for different geographic areas, and configure shipping rates to ensure a smooth transition.

If you sell digital products, don't forget to disable the shipping option. If you have doubts about shipping configuration, our team of experts is ready to guide you.

Setting up tax settings

Settings Sales tax charging is crucial. RichClicks advises you to take the time to understand and configure Shopify or Shopify Plus taxes based on your location and applicable tax regulations.

Monitor taxes throughout the year and, if necessary, consult accounting apps available in the Shopify App Store.

Setting up a Payment Gateway

To ensure secure and smooth payments, configure a payment gateway. Shopify offers its own payment gateway (Shopify Payments) or supports various third-party gateways. RichClicks will recommend the best option for your needs.

Configure your payment gateway and customize the checkout page to offer your customers a seamless shopping experience.

Place test orders

After configuring payments, place some test orders to ensure everything works correctly. RichClicks recommends testing different types of transactions, including refunds, cancellations, and order fulfillment.

Also, check emails sent to customers and customize notification templates from the Shopify control panel

If you have collaborators, add staff members with customized access to protect sensitive data. RichClicks will help you set up permissions so that each user can access only the necessary areas.

Domain configuration

RichClicks simplifies the process of obtaining a new domain or transferring an existing domain to your Shopify store. Purchase a new domain directly from Shopify or follow the steps to link or transfer an existing domain.

Remember that it is essential to configure URL redirects in advance to avoid errors with SSL certificates and ensure a smooth transition for your customers.
