Hey, @laylamichaels!

Welcome to Shopify Community.

Thank you for your question. There's two potential solutions that could benefit you in this scenario, so let's explore them below.

Use the Shopify Buy Button with your existing WordPress site

Besides the obvious benefit of being the quickest way to convert your existing WordPress site into one with e-commerce functionality, this method also allows you to keep your site the way it is. You can add embed code to individual posts and to the menu on the home page of your blog for as little as $9 USD/month with our Lite Plan by signing up here.

Buy Buttons are designed to work with external websites or blogs by injecting code that adds 'shoppable' products. Buy Buttons can show product pictures, descriptions, and prices, all while letting customers purchase products without leaving the website. This can be the perfect solution depending on your needs. Make sure to check out the Buy Button FAQ to learn about your options.
