Is it possible to have someone check the backend of the store and make sure the taxes, shipping, ect. are setup properly before going live?

Hey, @Merchantslide!

Welcome to Shopify Community. My name is Olivia and I work here.

Thanks for sharing your question, and I'd be glad to help! We do not recommend providing any third-party access to your account through our forums, but we do have a 24/7 Support Team you can connect with to have your specific questions answered or if you need a second set of eyes on your store. 

With that being said, each store's needs are unique so what is setup correctly for one merchant, may not be for you. To help address this, we have created a launch checklist that you can use to make sure your store is ready to open its virtual doors. We cover everything below in great detail:

  1. Add your chosen sales channels
  2. Add a custom domain
  3. Thoroughly review your checkout experience and payment gateway settings
  4. Prepare your standard pages
  5. Review your email notification settings
  6. Conduct a content audit
  7. Optimize all images on your website
  8. Install an analytics tool
  9. Have a prelaunch marketing plan
  10. Adjust your tax and shipping settings
  11. Make it easy for shoppers to contact you
  12. Install only the essential apps
  13. Set up your billing information

Here are some more checkbox ideas to consider while building your store:

It's always a good idea to run a couple of test orders to make sure everything is running smoothly, but also to get you accustomed to a workflow in Shopify.

I trust that answers your question, but please let me know if anything else comes up.

Warm regards,

Olivia | Social Care @ Shopify
