Finding ways to monetize and sell your content can be critical to your success as a creator. In fact, the more ways you can diversify and sell your brand, the better off you will be in the long term. Shopify is one of the popular platforms that creators and sellers alike use to grow and manage their businesses.
Because of its success within the creator economy, we created a new app called Shopify Storefront. It lets you link your Shopify account and import all of your items for sale into your social profiles, where your fans and followers can make purchases.
This guide will explain what Shopify Storefront is and how you can integrate it into your social profiles.
Shopify Storefront for Your Social Profiles
Shopify is an e-commerce platform that lets you build and customize an online store and sell in multiple places like the web, mobile, in-person, and across social media channels. The platform has had a lot of success in helping creators monetize their brands.
The Shopify Storefront Koji lets you import all your products from your Shopify store into your profile. You can customize the storefront to fit your style with several brand and theme options to choose from. Once the app is published, your followers can visit your Shopify Koji and purchase your merchandise through the app.
We’ll identify some steps you need to take to set up the Koji for your social profiles.
What Is A Koji?A Koji is a type of interactive media that can help you sell your products, downloads, services or premium content. To create a Koji, simply select a template and customize before sharing the unique URL on Instagram, TikTok, YouTube, WhatsApp, or anywhere else!
