I am new to shopify and trying to create a store with an option to switch between countries. I found many forum questions that we do not have a facility to create multiple stores under the same account.
Can anyone suggest me how to achieve something like below?
mainstore.com, mainstore.com/usa, mainstore.com/ca, mainstore.com/france
I have to do this for 7 countries, different products, different prices, same template!!
Most stores that do this have a subdomain for each country (ie. http://fr.mainstore.com, http://us.mainstore.com)
From there you would use your Domain host's settings to link each subdomain to each individual countries' store.
The rest would be quite simple, happy to say! You could use Shop Transfer to sync information between all the new stores: https://apps.shopify.com/shop-transfer
What we can do for these situations is give a discount of one pricing tier lower on the plan for each additional site that is related to your primary store. For example, if your current plan is Professional, your additional stores would be billed at Basic plan.
I'm just going through this right now.
Here are a couple of issues I had and how i'm trying to resolve them
so others can see and learn from it.
I have a .net site for the USA market and realized that if i used the
same site for Canada, the conversion of my price would go to
Canadian dollars, meaning it would go from 49.99 to something more.
I have two problems with this. I wanted the prices to stay consistent but
the shopify store only allows 1 currency. So i had to get another
shopify .ca site for my store. I also heard from a few people that
people shopping in canada are usually more comfortable with a
.ca address since they've had experience buying from a .com and
not realizing its in american or they ship from the USA.
My other issue was setting up a blog and duplicate content issues
for both sites. I asked some people in Google and a few SEO people
and they said the duplicate site should be okay, but not to put
duplicate content on two different blogs on each site.
Here are my questions for anyone that has similar experiences
or can further elaborate:
1. How do i make it so that anyone in Canada gets redirected to
my .ca site when they go to the .net one?
2. How do i link my .ca site to my .net blog so its not duplicate
content but everyone can still see that there's blog content
for my site?
There are a couple of ways you can do this. There may be other ways but these appear to be optimal.
Leave exchange rates up to your customer until your business has grown enough to justify the expense of expanding your business to another country or region of the world. Your customer has come to your US based business online from another country. Sell to them in your local currency.
