Hi there - I am completely new to Shopify. I have mostly been selling on eBay and Etsy and made the decision to change platforms to Shopify. I am pretty much used to the workflow of post item, sell item, ship item. So seeing all the fine print that goes along with Shopify is intimidating. I just basically do my business from home and it’s more of side hustle level at the moment but looking forward it would be great to grow my brand. What are the helpful tips for newbies to look out for? I operate out of Mississippi so I am not sure how to navigate taxes and how to set up my store legit so I won’t have any issues in the long run on the state level. What are the main things I need to do? Tax settings? Do I need to actually have a business license?
now that I have a store on Shopify it just seems like I might be in over my head and I don’t want to set myself up incorrectly so that it bites me later. Any and all advice for this beginner would be so appreciated!
