When you open Shopify, the first thing you see is your Shopify Home:
Your Shopify Home is the starting point for the work you do in Shopify. It shows key information about daily tasks, your store’s recent activity, and the next steps you can take to build your business. From Home, you can:
- Keep track of orders and revenue at a glance across all your active sales channels.
- Manage your business using the Shopify admin.
- Receive updates about urgent tasks through Home notifications.
- Gain insight about purchase patterns, traffic, and growth through Shopify’s analytics.
The Home metrics display a sales summary for your overall business, and specific sales and engagement data for your active sales channels. You can view sales data from Today, the Last 7 days, or the Last 30 days using the dropdown menu.
If you want a closer look at your store’s sales and engagement data, open one of the sales channels overviews or the Reports page in your Shopify admin for more detailed reports and analytics.
Most of the information from the previous-generation Shopify Home now appears on the Online Storesales channel overview in your Shopify admin.
Shopify Home also displays notifications about your own unique Shopify business, based on your account status, growth, and recent customer activity. Notifications appear outside of Home Feed:
Shopify Home Feed offers insights sorted by categories: Admin, Sales, Engagement, Growth and Social. Categories make it easy to tell between different types of insights and advice cards in Home Feed. If no cards in a specific category are visible, then that category won’t appear.
Shopify Home Feed displays cards based on your store’s recent activity and what you’ve been doing in your Shopify admin. Cards change regularly to help you run your business smoothly. You’ll receive:
Data-driven insights about purchase patterns, referrals, and more:
Suggestions and advice for getting the most out of Shopify:
Tips, resources, and recommendations for growing your Shopify business:
Announcements for new features, services, or offerings from Shopify:
Achievements for successful set up, activation, and other milestones:
To-do lists that help grow your business:
Trend insights for your products:
You can upvote and dismiss Home Feed cards: clicking I like this sends feedback that you like that card type, and clicking Hide this dismisses the card until the information becomes relevant again.
If you click Hide this from the action menu, you can leave feedback:
Shopify uses this information to improve Home Feed.
For different perspectives on your Shopify business, you can switch between the general Home overview and the more detailed activity feed. Click View all recent activity in the Recent activity section of the Home metrics to open the activity feed:
The Shopify admin
From your Shopify Home, you can access the different sections of the Shopify admin using the left navigation:
The different sections of the Shopify admin are organized into three groups:
- core aspects of your Shopify business, including orders, products, and customers
- sales channels, including Online Store, Point of Sale, and Buy Button
- apps and general settings that apply to your Shopify business.
If a section of the Shopify admin has an arrow beside it, you can expand the navigation and display additional settings or pages related to that section. For example, if you click Online Store from your Shopify admin, you can view settings related to that sales channel, such as Blog Posts, Themes, and Domains:
You can also use the in-admin search to find products, pages, or other information within your Shopify admin:
You can use Shopify to reach your customers wherever you do business, whether it’s in person, through your Shopify store, or elsewhere online. Each of these appears in your Shopify admin as a separate sales channel:
Available sales channels
The following Sales Channels are currently available in your Shopify admin:
||Sell through your online storefront and checkout. Your Shopify plan includes a Shopify-hosted domain at a myshopify.com address. If you prefer, you canset up your own domain.
|Point of Sale (POS)
||Sell in person using the Shopify POS app and a credit card reader. You can also add optional retail hardware like barcode scanners, receipt printers, and cash drawers.
||Add Buyable Pins to any products from your Shopify store that have been pinned on Pinterest.
||Add Buy Now buttons to any products from your Shopify store that have been tweeted on Twitter.
||Post and sell your products directly from the Shop tab on your store’s Facebook page.
||Sell from your own website or blog (including WordPress, Squarespace, and Tumblr) by embedding buy buttons that connected with your Shopify checkout.
||Sell physical products from your Shopify store inside your own iOS app. Your customers can make in-app purchases using Apple Pay or their credit card. (This requires some development work.)
All sales channels connect with the core of your Shopify business, so you can easily keep track of your orders, products, and customers across all platforms from within your Shopify admin.
You can also create new orders manually from the Orders page in your Shopify admin. This is useful for taking orders over the phone, invoicing your customers via email, or manually re-creating a mistaken order.
Add or remove a sales channel
You can add or remove sales channels from the Sales Channels settings page in your Shopify admin:
- From your Shopify admin, click Settings, then click Sales Channels (or press
- Add or remove sales channels by clicking Add channel or Remove channel:
If your store isn’t eligible to use a sales channel, it appears as Deactivated on the Sales Channels settings page in your Shopify admin:
Click Why is this deactivated? to see why your store isn’t eligible. You might need to change your store’s settings before you can add a sales channel — some of them have specific eligibility requirements, like Twitter,Pinterest, and Facebook.
To see how a particular sales channel is performing, open its Overview page from the navigation in your Shopify admin or click Overview in the Home metrics. For example, the Online Store overview shows sales and traffic data for orders placed through your Shopify store’s website:
You can also open any channel-specific pages from that sales channel’s Overview in your Shopify admin. In the example above, you can open pages related to your online store, such as Blog Posts, Themes, and Domains.
