Are you a beginner looking to create your own Shopify store? In this article, we will guide you through the step-by-step process of setting up a branded one-product Shopify store from scratch. Even if you have no prior experience in building an online store, you'll be able to follow along and create a professional and highly converting store by the end of this article.

Setting up a Shopify Store

The first step in creating your Shopify store is signing up for an account. We will provide you with a special link that offers a three-day free trial and three months of Shopify usage for only one dollar per month. Once you have signed up, you will be taken to the Shopify dashboard.

Choosing a Theme for Your Store

A theme determines the overall design and layout of your e-commerce site. Shopify comes with a pre-installed theme, but we recommend using a different one for this store. You can choose from a selection of free themes or explore the theme store for more options. For a branded one-product store, we recommend the Refresh or Sense theme, as they are easy to customize and suitable for various store types.

Adding Products to Your Store

If you are Drop Shipping from platforms like AliExpress or CJ Drop Shipping, it's best to import your products directly from these sources. We will use a tool called Deezers to import the product from AliExpress to our Shopify store. Deezers is a Shopify app that can be installed from the Shopify App Store. Once installed, you can import products from AliExpress or other sources with a single click.

Customizing Your Home Page

The home page is crucial for making a strong first impression on your customers. We will guide you through customizing the top section, adding images and text sections to showcase the benefits of your product, setting up a featured product section, and creating an email marketing section to capture customer emails.

Creating a Brand Logo

A well-designed logo adds professionalism and credibility to your store. You can create a logo for free using online design tools like Canva. We will show you how to choose a suitable template, customize it with your brand name, and download the logo. Additionally, we will guide you on how to upload the logo to your Shopify store and set it as your favicon.

Customizing Your Product Pages

Product pages play a significant role in convincing customers to make a purchase. We will show you how to delete unnecessary sections, add compelling descriptions and images, and import customer reviews using the Looks Product Reviews app. Customer reviews are essential for building trust and increasing conversion rates.

Importing Customer Reviews

Customer reviews provide social proof and can significantly impact purchasing decisions. The Looks Product Reviews app allows you to import reviews from AliExpress directly onto your product pages. We will demonstrate how to install the app, import reviews, and customize their display on your product pages.

Configuring Shipping Rates

Setting up accurate and reasonable shipping rates is essential for a successful e-commerce store. We will guide you through the process of creating shipping zones based on the regions you want to ship to, and setting up specific shipping rates for each zone. This ensures that customers are properly charged for shipping based on their location.

Setting up Payment Providers

Selecting the appropriate payment gateways is crucial for offering a seamless checkout experience for your customers. We recommend using Shopify Payments, which allows you to accept credit card payments directly through your store. We will guide you through the setup process and explain alternative payment methods if Shopify Payments is not available in your country.

Finalizing Store Settings

Before launching your store, we will cover crucial store settings such as taxes and duties, domain customization, and general preferences. Attention to detail in these settings ensures a smooth customer experience and compliance with legal requirements.

Testing and Launching Your Store

Before making your store public, it is crucial to thoroughly test each page, including product selection, adding items to the cart, and navigating through the checkout process. We will guide you on how to test your store and ensure everything is functioning correctly. Once you are confident in your store's performance, it's time to celebrate and launch your store!


Congratulations! You have successfully created a branded one-product Shopify store from scratch. We have covered the entire process, from setting up your store to customizing your pages, importing reviews, and configuring necessary settings. With this foundation, you are set to start selling your product and grow your e-commerce business. Remember to consistently optimize your store based on customer feedback and market trends for continual success!
