How to setup multiple store front or microsites for Shopify account(backend should remain the same)

Hi,

We are looking at the possibility of having multiple store front for our shopify account. Everything in the backend remains the same. All the orders should come to the same backend. Same with inventory etc.  

 

The only thing that changes for each store front is the look and feel and the product available. For us, these are more like microsite which is selling a subset of our product.

 

Is this possible in Shopify? We are open to upgrade to Shopify plus if the capability is available.

Hello @manojwky 

 

Yes, you can have multiple Shopify stores on one account.

 

Shopify allows you to create up to 10 stores on a single account, each with its domain name, products, settings and everything else. However, it’s important to note that each additional store will come with its monthly subscription fee. This means that if you have multiple stores, you'll need to pay a separate fee for each. 

 

Also, I don't think the backend of different stores can be connected. They would run separately as separate businesses.

 

I've found some articles that you might find helpful.

Hi Thanks for your reply. I find it valuable. Can I have different store pages running of the same backend? My business has three different trading stores. Setting up catalogues and limiting catalogues to the relevant pages should be an option Please share your thoughts. Thanks in advance. Regards

Hey mate, Having multiple front-ends (as different stores/installations - different domains) with a single checkout can be achieved using Storefront API and cartIDs.  Shopify's own Headless app helps simplify this but as a whole it's a deeeep customisation and you'll be multiplying app fees per store-front.

Alternatively you can create custom templates, however the design of headers and other core theme elements (depending on your theme) are generally restricted to a single design.  Apps that override the theme elements, and display conditional, can help there however Shopify's strict url architecture further limits this.
