2 new stores.... This post is outdated
I have setup one Shopify store, and have now had a request from someone on advice on setting up a new business... This has created some questions in my mind on how best to approach this and whether Shopify is the best solution. They have a business selling cremation urns.. They need two web presence from the same inventory. I can setup two stores, was just wondering if anyone had a better idea since it would be great to run it from one set of inventory. One web presence would be in Canada, in Canadian dollars and the other one we in the US selling in US dollars. Any thoughts other than two stores?? The second issue that is related is as follows. The US store can sell to the world except for Canada. The Canadian store will ONLY sell to Funeral Homes... Any thoughts on how best to deal with that?? The third issue is how best to approach the selling of inscription engravings?? The selling of the urns is easy... I can even sell the engraving... Is there an easy way to allow the end users to indicate what the engraving should be within the sell cycle?? The fourth issue is that the Funeral homes would buy multiple times.. So now there is the need for retaining shipping info etc, so having the ability to "register" would be very useful.... The person has sort of looked at ebay stores.. Looks expensive, but may have some features.... Thoughts anyone?? Thanks. Julian....
