Great book for Shopify newbies! I was more than a bit intimidated about using Shopify as my online store, having only used drag & drop builders before. This book REALLY helped me find my way around and figure out most of what I can customize in my theme. There are no other books out there featuring Shopify only, and if I hadn’t purchased this book, I doubt I’d have gone with them. It seemed too complicated.

I read the free excerpt first, liked it, and bought the book. I don’t regret it at all! If you’re new to Shopify & are a bit lost or are afraid you won’t be able to figure it out, buy this book! You won’t be sorry!

About the author

Shopify & You

My name is Thomas Holmes and I was born and raised in Dublin, Ireland. Today I live in Montpellier in the South of France. So what qualifies me to write this book? For a start, donkey’s years playing and working on the Internet. I created my first website in the summer of 1994. I was immediately hooked and I’ve been working with the web ever since. My first business was an Internet marketing consultancy called logic+intuition. In 2007 I created my first online store. Over a period of four years, this second business generated nearly 1.5 million euros in sales. With this book, I’m launching my third Internet-related venture. By the way, I love photography and they’re my photos that you'll see throughout the book.
