How Do I Find My Shopify Storefront Address?

How you can locate your Shopify storefront URL, and then how to connect to Craftybase to import your sales automatically and finally get control of your inventory woes.

Opening a Shopify store can be a huge step toward success for your small business, but it certainly comes with a learning curve! In this blog post, we’ll show you how to easily find your Shopify Storefront Address (otherwise known as your Shopify URL).

What is my Shopify URL?

Your Shopify storefront URL address is the name of your store, followed by .myshopify.com. This is the default address Shopify provides you with when you first open your store.

So, for example, if you named your Shopify store Big Picture Clothing, your Shopify name would likely look like this: big-picture-clothing.myshopify.com.

You should be able to see it in the website address bar when you’re viewing your dashboard on Shopify.

Don’t like myshopify appearing in your URL? No problems - you can configure your own domain name to redirect to your shopify - we’ll cover this in detail below. Alternatively, you can find (and change) your Shopify storefront address by going to your settings, which we’ll explain below.

How do I change my Shopify storefront address?

If you want to change the name of your Shopify store, you can do it in your settings.

Go to the General Settings page, find the store details section, and you’ll see your current store name in the box under “Store name”.

Do I need a custom domain name for Shopify?

We recommend you do, yes. Having a custom domain name (such as www.myamazingbiz.com) allows you to brand your business, and will help you look more professional. Remember that you need to build trust with your potential customers and while Shopify is a big name, not all consumers know what it is.

The good news is you can pick up a custom domain name for just a few dollars, and they usually only cost around $13 a year to maintain from year 2 on - up to $20 a year with additional identity protection.
