It’s a year long journey that started the online store names after my grandmother’s. Minnie and Winnie are the names of my grandmother’s and I need a name for this online store that would encourage me when I was down or hit a rough patch.

Getting it together was after I received a letter from Department of Taxation stating that they would not approve my refund because they did not appear to be with the motive of profit. That hurt my feelings because I thought I was doing better and okay for a beginner but it wasn’t according to this worker. So I purchased a program that was supposed to help me get my website off the ground and profitable but that was not what happened. Moreso, after a week of hand holding, they wanted an additional $1997.00.

Update as of February 4th, 2019.

Well, after a chargeback, shopify shut my entire site down on January 3rd, 2019 and advised me not to try to reopen or register another site with them because that site too would be shut down.

I was upset because I had no idea what was so wrong that I had to lost the email list and contact I had made and that my reputation was so tarnished I could not try again. I did however receive a refund for the charges I paid for on December 27th, 2018. I was definitely shocked to say the least and was very bothered by the authority of shopify to snatch the business I was building and the orders that I had to fulfill had to be cancelled.

So this site was no more and I had to start a fresh with bigcommerce, who allow you to easily transition from one niche site to another without beating you in the head fees and incognito. I initially chose shopify because setting up the site was fairly simple but bigcommerce is also simple enough and allowed easier access to products and vendors.
