 Need help with my online store
I'm having trouble understanding how to use some of the features of my online store. I'm particularly struggling with the inventory management system and the order processing system. I've tried to figure it out on my own, but I'm getting lost.
I would really appreciate it if someone could help me navigate my online store. I'm not very tech-savvy, so I'm a bit lost. I'm hoping to learn how to add new products to my store, manage my inventory, and process orders.
I'm open to any feedback or suggestions you have on how to improve my online store.
Thank you for your help!

Hi, Kt!


I'll provide some general information on these topics to get started, though it is important to note that the processes of adding products, managing inventory, and processing orders can vary depending on your business model. I'm curious to learn about your business so I can share the most accurate information for you. The links embedded below lead to the Shopify Help Center where you can find more details on each topic.


Adding products

If you carry your own inventory, you can add new products in the Shopify admin by going to Products > Add product. You'll be able to add details like the product title, description, price, and more.


Managing inventory

You can enter your products' inventory details when adding new products. There is also an Inventory section of the Shopify admin where you can adjust your inventory counts.


Processing orders

Customers can place orders on your online store if you have enabled a payment method and you have a shipping zone that covers their location, as well as shipping rates available for the items in their cart.


Once you receive an order, you'll be emailed a new order notification, and the order will be visible in the Orders section of your admin where you can proceed to fulfill it.


If you're working with suppliers, they likely have a process to import products to your store. The way that inventory is managed and orders are processed would differ in this case as well. Let me know if there's an app you're using to source products so we can find out what their processes are.
