I'm having troble running my online store with shopify.
The store front does not show up and has an error in dashboard:
Please click on "Add sales channel" and add "online store" sales channel.
Let me know if you are still facing this issue.
Not all plans have the Online Storefront as an available channel.
The Lite plan for example does not as it's setup for social selling (like instagram, facebook, etc).
If you have a plan greater than Lite you should be able to have access to the Channel. In that case, contact the support team directly.
Thanks for your replay @Jason
Our plan is shopify lite.
Actually our main goal is to tag products on Instagram with a product link to our own website.
After adding Instagram sales channel, it says we can't use product tagging without online store channel:
Your store isn't eligible to use Instagram product tagging
To use Instagram product tagging, you need to:
we have already connected our facebook page; we have an error there also:
"It can take up to 48 hours for your store to be reviewed. Your products won’t appear on Facebook until your shop is approved."
Actually they don't provide the online store on shopify lite plan.
Are you sure that you can create Instagram sales channel on lite plan?
Please contact Shopify support as their terms and conditions might have changed recently on this.
That could just be bad info on my side. It's been a long time since I've needed to touch that plan. You do get access to buy buttons and channels, but checking with the support team would be your best bet for confirmation.
