Once you’ve determined that, you can set up your store with Shopify. Choose from Shopify’s more than 80 themes to customize your store, upload pictures of your plates, choose your preferred payment processor, and start selling online today.

  • Shopify takes the load off your plate by offering you ready-made tools and features to get your store up and running. This includes a built-in blog feature to help you spread the word and social media integrations to keep your followers in the know. And, if you have a physical store, Shopify sweetens the deal by providing you with Shopify POS, which lets you seamlessly integrate your in-person and online sales.

  • Yes, you can sell plates on Shopify, from dinnerware and dining plates to collector, vintage and antique plates.

  • To price your antique plates, you’d need to learn how to date them so you don’t underprice or overprice them.

You can always check your competition to see how best to price plates, and use Shopify’s free profit margin calculator to ensure you’re not running at a loss.
