I wanted to name this article How to Change Your Shopify Order Numbers. Unfortunately it just isn't possible. I'll show you what you can change, how to do it, and why you'd want to make that change.
Yesterday I wrote a post about how you can add an announcement bar to WooCommerce. Today I want to show how you can do the same thing in Shopify. The Shopify Announcement Bar isn't built in which is a little annoying. But the free app is really configurable. You can set it up in a few minutes and have it match your theme perfectly.
Most e-commerce platforms let you create orders manually. That way even if you're at a conference or a potential customer calls you you can capture those orders.
While many systems let you create orders manually they don't always let you charge a credit card which kind of defeats the purpose. But even if your e-commerce platform doesn't let you process credit cards if you use Stripe you're in luck. They make processing credit cards really easy.
Over the past couple weeks I've been pretty busy. So busy that I completely forgot to do those traditional business things like get business cards. facepalm
That's okay though – because I'm able to announce two projects this week.
I've spent part of my time consulting for some amazing e-commerce businesses (<- future post). And I've spent another part creating e-commerce content for Lynda.com. And today I'm happy to announce that we created and launched Learn Shopify: The Basics.
