ADRIAN MORRISON: All right, so in this module here, we're going to keep it short and sweet, but we're going to talk about something that is very important. It's actually my favorite thing. It's probably going to be yours too, and that is setting your Shopify store up so you can accept payments from your customers and, of course, so you can get paid, which is very fun. So to get to this section right here where you can start the setup, which should only take you about 10 minutes max, you come over here to the left-hand side where the clock is at the bottom left-- sometimes this is easy to miss-- and you just click on Settings.
Now, when you click on Settings, it's going to bring you here where you can go over general shipping files, your account permissions, checkout. You want to click right here where it says Payments. So let's go ahead and click that now. OK, now, when you get to this section here, you've got to choose how do you want to accept payments and how do you want to get paid. So I personally use option number 1, that is Shopify payments powered by stripe.
It's very simple to set up. Like I said, it takes about five minutes. You answer some basic questions, and Shopify powered by stripe will charge your customers' credit cards, and, of course, they will send you all of the money for the revenue and sales that you've generated. So if you want to use that option, you can just click that button. But from what I understand, depending on where you are in the world, this may or may not be available to you.
I live in the United States. It's available there, so that's what I use. Now, additionally, you've got PayPal. All right. So the great thing about PayPal is it is universal. I mean, so many people all over the world, they use PayPal. They trust PayPal. It's a secure payment option. And you really can't lose with this. So PayPal is an option. All you have to do is just simply connect your PayPal account to your Shopify store by clicking the button over here that says Edit, and everything is pretty seamless setup.
And, by the way, you can accept PayPal and you can accept other payment options as well. So sometimes it's good to give people both options. Would you rather pay with your credit card or would you rather pay with your PayPal account? Because different people have different preferences. Additionally, they have Amazon Pay down here. So you can allow your customers to make purchases using payment and shipping information stored in their Amazon account.
A lot of people use Amazon, so it's a great payment option to have. And then, of course, they have other alternative payment methods. So you can accept payments from BitPay, Coinbase, GoCoin. Pretty crazy stuff right here. It's really cool. I mean, they just have so many different ways that you can accept payments from your customers. And then you have manual payments. So you can go in here and you can set all of these up based off of what you're comfortable with and what you want to do.
And, of course, payment authorization, you can automatically capture payment for your orders. That's by default. I would leave it right there. And if you'd like to use Shopify payments, I'll just go and click in that very fast. So up here, if this is an option available to you, you can just simply hit Complete account setup, then it's going to ask you for stuff like your business type. It'll ask you for your street address and all that good stuff.
Well, since I'm in the US, they asked me for my social security number, first and last name, date of birth, average order price. It's going to ask us what we want our descriptor to be on people's statement so when they purchase something, they know that they purchased it from us. And then, of course, a very important part at the bottom, they're going to ask for your banking details so they know where to send your money.
Because when you process an order on Shopify, they capture the payment and then they send you the money for the sales and revenue that you've generated. So this is what I do. Either way, it's all up to you. You got PayPal, Amazon payments. You can hook up to all sorts of different places. Shopify makes it simple so you can use whatever solution makes you happy. So go ahead, make sure you get set up with your payments, and you can get started generating some revenue.
And, of course, go ahead to the next video, and we'll see you there.
