    As soon as I opened your website there was 5stars given to shopify. Then I scroll down and before the article starts there is a redirect link for shopify. Then I go to back out of your site and a full page take over with another shopify add. Do they own you or just pay you alot. Either way you are a joke and I will check back to see if my post is on your review!

      Hi Casey,

      Sorry for the delay in responding. We’ve had a lot of questions to get through lately.

      To respond to your question–It’s important to know that in order for all of us here at Merchant Maverick to continue publishing the valuable and completely free content that we do, we had to get creative! We are NEVER EVER paid for writing positive reviews. We are paid for advertising placements by a few highly rated companies, and we have no problem disclosing that to our readers. We have a page on our site where you can read all about How We Get Paid and you can also check out our Rating & Scoring System if you’re curious.

      If you have any other questions we are happy to help.

        I closed my jewelry store in New Jersey and had lots of unsold items left after going out of business sale. I put them up on Shopify at 5% over cost/wholesale to cover expenses. Took forever with lots of live chats to get it set up more or less right. Less right are descriptions far below item image on some of the items. Initially, some images were huge, blown up ridiculously large. After a number of chats I was told that this was so because the default image proportions are set to square so say, a long necklace, comes out square with the width and height the same resulting in a monstrous image way out of proportion to most other images. It took a number of chats for someone to tell me that I could set the image to unsquare and that did it for the image sizes. But still there are image descriptions far below the image for a number of products. Couldn’t get them to solve that one so I left it as is. I just discovered that my gemstone earrings collection was not visible among the other collections. Took me quite a while to sort that one out. Why when I create a collection it isn’t automatically added to the other collections when saved is mystifying to me. .A friend with a store that sells used books and records in my town tried to set up a site on Shopify and he said it was so nonintuitive he gave up, and he’s a pretty smart guy. The Shopify store url is also mystifying, no httpt::// or www. Hyphens between the words in your store name followed by .myshopify.com. I registered my store name as a .com domain with Hostgator after all these Shopify problems just in case it didn’t work out. I could fix it for them. I’ve been dealing with the public for 40 years and have done 2 web sites from scratch myself and if I tell you it’s non-intuitive, it is. But I’m an old guy now and don’t need that aggravation.
