You’ve been using Shopify for a few months now, and your shop is up and running. You’ve made a few sales and now you’re looking to polish up a few things.
There are a million things you can do to level up your e-commerce game. But where do you begin?
Did you know Shopify has created a bunch of resources to help you — the shop owner — get the most out of your online store?
Let’s take a look at them here.
Privacy, Refund, and Terms of Service Policy Generators
Creating a policy can cost you hundreds to thousands of dollars if you hire a lawyer.
Luckily, Shopify provides some free templates. Of course you should still hire a lawyer to make sure everything is adequate for your protection, but if you don’t have the resources to legal help, this is the next best option.

Need to give your brand a spiffy new logo? You could pay several hundred dollars for a simple logo, but if you’re bootstrapping, you need to check out Shopify’s logo creator tool.
It’s super simple to use and you can customize to logo and text easily:
Printable Gift Certificate Template Generator
Are you going to a trade show and need to print off a whole bunch of coupon codes or gift codes? Your first inclination may be to fire up Microsoft Word and head off to Staples to do some photocopying. Your job is actually easier than you think.
Shopify has created a gift certificate template generator — one which you can customize with your logo and everything.
You’ll still need to generate the coupon codes in your Shopify store, but at least this will take care of the design. Combine this tool with the logo generator and you’ll end up with a pretty snazzy design, ready for printing.
Business Card Generator
In the past, I’ve gone to Vistaprint to get a bunch of business cards for cheap. But every time, I need to design the card and usually slap together something quite — shall we say — bland.
But fear no more, because Shopify has a business card maker ready for you to use:
Shopify Wholesaler Finder
Shopify created a wholesale marketplace some time ago. I’ve taken a look at it several times, but found it to be rather sparse in its listings.
Nonetheless, it may be a good place to put on your list of wholesalers to talk to as you come up with ideas on products to sell.
Shopify has a number of other tools available as well from invoice generator to business name generator. Some less useful resources are there, such as profit calculator — we personally prefer to use an Excel spreadsheet. Nonetheless, they’re there and free to use.
