Hi there,

I am looking to expand my online store to another country/market.

The product range for this other country store will be different from my current main store.

Should I create a new Shopify account with a new domain?
Or can I add a new location, duplicate my current store and use a sub domain?

Any advise or anyone with similar experience would be helpful.

Regards,
Andre

I have explored Shopify Markets (but have not received clear answers!) and looked at an app called Shpify Geolocation Advanced Store Localization.

It sounds to me that you want to have a different warehouse in a different market, and based on the availability of your product in that other market you want to dynamically generate the frontend for the user. I wished that Shopify had a better in-house solutions, I initially thought that Markets would allow for that but it doesn't seem like it.

Would love to hear if you find anything else.

Thanks for the reply.

Yeah thats the limitation on the markets feature right now. Thanks for the link, that's what Shopify sent to me as well. Will look into it!
