Skipping Checkout Steps g7

Hi, I have a store where default shipping is $10, but shipping is free over $100. My problem is the check out from the cart skips the first two teps (including the shipping) if the user is logged in and goes directly to the payment screen (#3)?

Sudden Spike of Fake Vistors Using IE Browser Showing Up In Shopify Stats

I am looking into hiring someone to read the old store and enter some text and do a lot of tagging. I see there's a way to restrict someone's access with individual logins. Is this safe? Is there a history of hacks and backdoor codes being entered? Any ...

Opinions please - Is Shopify right for us

Hello, We are considering Shopify for our online store. We have been using Prestashop but it is difficult to keep up to date and we are not coders, nor do we have the money to hire coders. We tried Squarespace Commerce. Very beautiful but missing very basic functions - so a complete failure. We are in Canada, selling to Canadians. We need to support products that are both taxabl...

Multiple Currencies and Stores

Hi Guys I run three businesses and would like to move them all from Magento to Shopify. The main issue I'm coming up against is this... On our Magento site we accept GBP £, USD $ and Euros.

Why would I have to do all these edits OR download an app to be able to limit the purchase of a product.  Why cant this be a check box for the product page?  Doesnt make sense as this is a fundamental movement and every ecommerce option has this as a check mark

Shipping Transit Days Map on Checkout Page

I would like to add a Shipping Transit Map [like the image below] to our checkout page. We have had customers pay for overnight shipping when they would already get their order within 1 business day using UPS ground. The link here makes it sound like it's possible to include images on the checkout screens but then it doesn't even remotely explain how. Any ideas?!?
