Holistically, Shopify supports your entire ecommerce ecosystem: It is global, cloud based, absorbs all superfluous complexity to make running a business as easy as possible, the platform is designed to grow with you and is the most integrated out-the-box solution.
We love Shopify and believe you will too.
Payment processing: Choose from 100+ payment gateways included
Shopify boasts one of the best payment processors for any ecommerce platform available on the market today. If you have ever tried to create a store online using Wordpress, you know just how hard and complicated it can be to be able to take payments on your store and get paid.
Shopify payments comes integrated with your store as standard. All you need to do it activate it. You can then integrate your favourite payment providers to give your customers the ability to pay how they want to; PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, Amex, Apple Pay, Google Pay and Meta Pay to name a few.

Manage your store anywhere in the world with the Shopify Mobile App
As Shopify puts so eloquently, “Running your business isn’t a desk job. The Shopify app keeps it that way”.
You can download the Shopify mobile app to your iOS or Android device to be able to run your business wherever you are, on the go. You can even make large scale changes to your store such as changing the look and feel or your store or even creating professional marketing campaigns.
What’s more, the sound of the Shopify ‘ding’ tone when you receive a new order notification on your phone is an instant dopamine hit, immediately filling you with joy as you make sales and get notified in real time. It is worth downloading the app, simply for the instant order notifications and the satisfying tone you will hear when the sales start coming in.
Oh yes, and the app is free.
Shopify Capital: Funding options are available to those wanting to scale their business
Shopify Capital is genius. Using complicated algorithms, Shopify will announce that you can borrow money from Shopify Capital based on your sales figures. You’d be eligible to apply because of your store’s sales history with Shopify, not your personal credit score. Makes sense.
The more money your store makes, the more money you can borrow. What’s more, you pay the borrowed funds through your future Shopify store sales. On busy days, you can pay back more; on quiet days, you can pay back less.
Funding is typically received within 2-3 business days of a successful application and the amount of repayment won’t increase. It’s a great tool to scale your business. To the moon?

Shopify Email is built into your store: Create powerful email campaigns
Shopify has many built-in tools. Shopify email is one of them. Email is super important in today’s marketing landscape as cost-per-click advertising (Facebook Ads, Google Ads) are unreliable and expensive. Being able to directly outreach to an email list of customers is always going to be and advantage - especially when done correctly by using email to build trust, promote yourself as an industry leader and of course, make your customers aware of sales and discounts.
Shopify email allows you to create professional emails within your store’s admin area. You can brand emails to match your store’s design, use email templates (no code) and use automations and custom workflows. What’s more, you can segment your email list and see real time analytics - features which you would need to pay extra for using with other top leading custom email providers.
It is said ‘the people most likely to buy from you in the world are the ones who already have’. This couldn’t be truer. Make sure that email marketing is a part of your digital marketing strategy.
Shopify is used by 1,700,000 + merchants in 175+ countries
Great to know:
1.7 million merchants use Shopify to make money online - more than any other ecommerce platform.
If all Shopify stores across the world were amalgamated, Shopify would be the 3rd largest online retailer, only behind Amazon and eBay.
Top brands use Shopify to host and grow their businesses. Shopify is famously used by Tesla, Gymshark, Pepsi, Redbull, Unilever, Pepsi, Sephora, Nestle and… Startup Streams.
457 million people purchased from a Shopify store in 2020, an increase of 52.33% over the previous year.
Shopify stores run businesses in 175 countries, including the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Netherlands, Brazil, India and New Zealand. Shopify’s platform supports 20 languages.
Blog: Your store has a powerful blog engine built in to help with SEO
It is estimated that there is one blog for every 7 people on the planet. That is a lot. Although the blogging space may seem saturated, or even outdated, maintaining a blog still has many benefits. All Shopify stores have a built-in blog engine meaning it has never been easier to run a blog.
Benefits of having a blog on your Shopify store include updating your customers with product and company information, you can tell stories to promote yourself as an industry thought leader, increase customer engagement on your website and improve your SEO (search engine optimisation) to allow Google and other search engines to send targeted traffic to your store.
A really helpful feature, as standard on all Shopify blogs, is the ability to edit the search engine listing so that you can customise what is seen in search to increase your click through rate.
Content is still king.
Add staff accounts: Invite your friends, family and colleagues to help you run your business
You don’t have to run a business alone. Shopify offers the powerful ability to be able to invite two people to access your store at no additional cost. As the store owner, you can control each user’s, or ‘staff’s’ access to all areas of your store’s admin for extra peace of mind.
You may wish to invite a friend or colleague to help you run your business by covering any weaknesses in your skill set. Maybe you wish to invite someone to aid with marketing and take responsibility for sending targeted traffic to your store? You may wish to invite another staff member to answer customer messages, create new products or analyse your sales data.
Who do you know who could help you run your business? Send them an invite from within your new Startup Streams Shopify store to help you make money online.
Incentivise your customers with custom discount codes
Offering discounts has many advantages: You can get a spike in sales from one-off sales events like Black Friday or Cyber Monday, you can offer an incentive for new or existing customers to try a new product or create an multi-buy discount like ‘buy one get one free’ to increase your average order value.
Your Startup Streams Shopify store allows you to achieve all of the above simply and easily by enabling you to offer one-off discount codes (whereby you can control the discount amount, redeem limit and time frame) and automatic discounts which appear in checkout depending on rules you set - like ‘buy this product and get that product for 50% off’.
How creative can you get with using discount codes?
"I honestly did this on a whim to try out for a side business. The gentleman I was working with via Startup Streams was super easy to work with, very informative, and quite helpful."
"WHAT ARE THE RUNNING COST?"
UPDATE 2023: $39 / month Basic Shopify Plan. You pay monthly and can stop or pause your plan at any time - there are no long term commitments. All other costs are optonal.
THIS STORE IS NON-EXCLUSIVE
Anyone can buy and market this store. Although exclusivity would have its advantages, our starter stores are priced far below the $3500 price tag you would be paying for a unique business.
"Ed was very friendly and polite, answered any questions that I had... the whole experience was amazing. I strongly recommend him and his team for your Shopify needs! Will be back for additional services :)"
