What Does it Take for Makers to Be Successful on Shopify?

The reality is that most stores on Shopify are taken up by drop shippers and resellers. That means that most of the resources available through search engines are created for them and not for makers. 

It makes all the difference when as a maker you need to show off your unique qualities and earn the trust of your potential customers to a much greater degree.

Completely different ball game.
