Also, because of my limited time that evening, I didn’t set up the “Product Options” app. THEME/DESIGN I scrolled through all free themes on the Shopify theme store but couldn’t find one that had the options I was looking for. So I bought a theme for $49 USD. I spent about one hour arranging the theme sections: Screenshot showing Shopify product dashboard By the end of the hour I had my front page design ready: Sreenshot showing Hyke Shopify store Again, this is far from the final design. My main goal for the front page design was to let visitors instantly know what the business is about. Translation of the first lines: “You just need 1 backpack - Functional & Individual - Your name on your backpack” I think it’s obvious Telemarketing list I sell backpacks. CUSTOM DOMAIN Unfortunately, hyke.com was taken. So I had to come up with an extension to “hyke”. I chose to go with as it expresses the business the best. The freedom-seeker-lifestyle movement. Screenshot showing Shopify custom domain setting After purchasing the custom domain I finished everything I wanted to finish that evening. Even though I’m slowly but surely running out of time and things are not running smoothly, I’m happy I could start selling and shipping! WEEK THE FIRST SALE Everything became a bit overwhelming. Slowly but surely I lost control. I had two options: Pause the project until my military training in the German army is over (and don’t reach my goal) OR Ask for help.

I wanted to test the quality of my supplier’s products. So it was time to order product samples. PRODUCT SAMPLE To test the quality of the backpacks and the rubber patches, I chose to order two backpacks (different colors) and two rubber patches. Due to the high setup costs of the manufacturer, one rubber patch sample would cost $60. As 100 patches cost $80, I decided to order 100 for $20 more. Screenshot showing a chat conversation $180 including express delivery to Germany seemed solid and I placed my sample order. A few days later, I received a package… Picture showing a package WEEK #2: PLANNING TO MAKE $1,000 PROFIT My girlfriend had a very hard time… First, she had to deal with Telemarketing list my, let’s say not-the-best-mood, in the days prior to my sample order delivery as go through. Second, when the package finally arrived, she had to deal with my over-excitement about it! Express shipping from China to Germany only took three days. Unfortunately, my supplier tried to trick the German customs by saying the products are worth $7.00. This would have saved me custom fees. But this has become very common practice, and German customs figured it out. So the delivery was put on hold until I could prove how much I actually paid. Here’s the email I sent to UPS with screenshots of my $180 USD Alibaba transaction, which took care of customs: Screenshot showing an email
