Before, I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I had stop at Shopify. After my disappointment with another affiliate program, I was searching for other ways to make income from home. So, stumbled into Shopify, which let me join for free for seven days, just like Wealthy Affiliate offered a week free trial. I did not take advantage of the seven days offered by Shopify because I found Wealthy Affiliate and I join them as well. I became intrigued by the special training offered by Wealthy Affiliate and continued until I became a premium member.
This past week end I was looking for something to write about and remembered that perhaps I did not give Shopify a fair chance. I decided to do research on Shopify. Does it work? Did I miss on anything by not joining? This is what I found.

- Look up the domain.
- Make sure that the contact information is reliable
- Use only secure payment options.
- If it sounds too good to be true, walk away.

So What Have I Learn
I have realized that in October 2019, when I decided to join Wealthy Affiliate, I made the most intelligent decision of the year.

No wonder I was compelled to join Wealthy Affiliate at that point and time. They offer an enormous amount of products, services and tools to help you reach your goals.
This is above and beyond the training offered by Shopify. Certainly the prices on Wealthy Affiliate are a lot more reasonable. At that time I did not get to find out the prices on Shopify because I joined Wealthy Affiliate, so I chose not to fallow up any further on Shopify until now that I did research on them.
I am very happy that at that time I decided to join Wealthy Affiliate. In view of my research now I discovered that I could have never afforded the expenses link to opening a store at Shopify. It is also too confusing for me to understand their complex system. In any case should you be interested in opening a store at Shopify do not be discourage by my findings. Do a little more research of your own on their products and services, so you can make a well-informed decision. It may turn out to be that a Shopify store is something of interest to you and you would like to consider it as an investment in your future. What may be difficult for me, might not be so challenging to someone else. So if it interests you, go for it! Give it a try. And of course if you are not happy with your findings then please take a look into Wealthy Affiliate. You may find out that is the best way to go.
