How To Install A Dropshipping App on Shopify

All apps found on Shopify will have their unique functions and features.

One such app includes Honest Fulphilment, a dropshipping company that provides Third-party (3pl) logistics efficiency.

There are a few steps you have to take to download the Honest Fulphilment app or any other dropshipping app.

The steps include:

  1. Log into the Shopify App store and search for the dropshipping app you want to download.
  2. Once you have found the app click on it.
  3. On the app listing page, find the Add app feature and click it.
  4. In your Shopify admin, be sure to click install the app to authorize the use of the app.

Once the app is installed, you can find and use it under the Apps page in your Shopify admin.

How To Setup Your Store Address

Shopify has made setting up your store simple. The store address you create is the address that will be shown on Shopify.

Once your store has been set up and completed, there isn’t much work left to do.

Your online store automatically uses the settings for checkout and order fulfillment that you have selected, and all of your products will automatically appear on your online store.

After setup, you will be given your individual 'myshopify' domain website address. Your store address will be based on the store name you signed up with.

The domain will look something like your-store-name.myshopify.com.

How To Select The Correct Address

As your store address uses the name you signed up with, you should ensure that you sign up with your business name and make sure to include the correct business email address so that everything syncs without error.

This will help keep everything streamlined and ensure that you sell your products with a professional brand behind them.

Another address that you have to ensure is correct is the shipping address; this needs to be recognized for your shipping label. Once the address has been submitted, it will be checked against the database of the shipping carrier.

When the addresses are recognized, the carrier will accept the label, there will be no errors in reading the label, and therefore no delays in processing and shipping.
