How do I get into Shopify as a consumer looking to shop around? I created an account but it only seems to show info about how to create your own store. I want to look at things to buy.

Hi there, @ryana14!


Thanks for sharing your query with us here in the Shopify Community.


I'd like to clarify for you a little about what Shopify is and what it does, and hopefully, get you pointed in the right direction.


As you've seen so far, Shopify is an ecommerce software that some merchants use to build their own stores to sell online or in-person around the world.


Shopify is not a marketplace or auction house type of service, and often you won't even notice that the independent business you're shopping with is using Shopify for their ecommerce needs.


Check out our FAQ page for more info on what Shopify is and what it does. 


If you're looking for a way to browse stores based on your interests or where you are instead, I'd suggest you check out our Shop app as it's a great way to do just that.


All the best!
