Today's Seventeen Second Spark focusses on Shopify Shipping using multiple locations. Shipping rates are calculated based on the address of your store's shipping origin location, not the fulfillment location for each order. This means that all your locations share the same shipping zone.
If you offer free shipping or flat-rate shipping for all your orders, then you don't need to change your shipping settings.
If your shipping rates vary significantly between locations, then you can change the location that is set as your shipping origin.
In today’s Seventeen Second Spark we talk about Migrating to Shopify. Migrating from another platform to Shopify can be stressful but here are two items to make it successful.
1. Bring all of your old orders and customer data over so everything is located in one location.
2. Remember to set your 301 redirects so your SEO or Google Search listings don’t get lost after migrating.

In today’s Seventeen Second Spark we remind you that Tax season is fast approaching and there is no better time to ensure you are collecting the appropriate taxes. This should have been done during the website set-upstage, but in your admin, navigate to Settings, then Taxes and make sure you are correctly set for your State or Province.
In this Seventeen Second Spark we try to help you understand the importance of two key sections of your website - The Header and the Footer.
The Header and Footer play a vital role in the success of your Shopify website. The Header houses your navigation which should be optimized to drive sales. Don't add every single link to all of your pages in the main navigation. This section is to drive sales, not review shipping terms or legal pages.
Your Footer should have all of the links to business related pages like Terms, Legal, Shipping, etc. Put another navigation section here too to get people to get back to shopping.
There is no better time than now to start a Podcast or YouTube Channel to drive traffic to your Shopify website.
It works with any industry. Describe the products and services you offer in your Podcast OR, better yet, SHOW them the products and services you offer in video on your YouTube channel.
