I did not put these details and someone wanted to order from me that did not give him a black-screen look and then the product page

Hey there,


Bo here from Shopify Support! 


Absolutely. You will need to set up a payment gateway in order to receive payments from your customers. By default, the system will try to send any funds that were paid through PayPal to a PayPal account with the same email address that you used when signing up to Shopify. If an order has been processed through PayPal the funds will be sent to a PayPal account with the same email. Did an order go through? 


Take a look at this guide on setting up third-party payment gateways to receive payments from your customer. I would also recommend taking a look at this guide on setting up PayPal specifically. 


As you are getting started I'd recommend taking a look at our Shopify webinars for sure. These short tutorials take you through all the basics of creating a store such as adding products, variants, collections, theme changes and pointing a domain to your store. You should be able to sign up here.  if you would like. We also have a free business course with our Shopify Academy that I would really encourage you to look at if you get a chance.


Please do let me know if you have any further questions.


All the Best,


Bo | Social Care @ Shopify
