I just closed down my shopify store. At least for now. I got the lite version and paid the $9.99 and was never able to link a facebook page to the store. Whatever exactly that is. I asked for help and no one was able to help me set things up. I think I opened to store too soon. And just wasn't ready to get things going. IS the regular $29 store much better? I don't know anything about "themes" or setting up a website. Am I going to have to do all this. I would rather concentrate or selling and the marketing tools.
Solved! Go to the solution
The regular store is much better IMO as you can do so much more with it. There is so much information both on the Shopify help pages and on Youtube that you don't have to be afraid of starting and building your own store - BUT if you are not willing to do the work to treat it as an actual business then I think you are better off being an employee of another business.
They did try to help me with the lite store. I already tried what they suggested and I asked for other options they the person I talked to anyway said they didn't know what was wrong. I left it at that anyway. Anyway,
"The store was opened too soon",
and the store was closed, yours is a moot point. Thanks anyway. Perhaps the lite store isn't as well or has as much support as the regular store. Maybe there would've been someone else they could've directed me to.

"I would rather concentrate or selling and the marketing tools."
There, I guess would be the "passion". The lite versions doesn't have a webstore. A webstore isn't necessary for ecommerce. Anyway I will continue to learn these things and everyone says it takes time. Sometimes people have to do this several times I have heard. I guess there's some kind of "passion" there or something.
What exactly were the issues that you ended up in shutting down, need to take time, shopify is one of the easy platforms to work with, i would suggest stick to it, other platforms like Magento, Presta will be hell difficult to manage,
try to resolve things with there support
if you need assistance, may be i can help...
