What You Must Know When Migrating to Shopify from Another Platform
I have had a number of Customers who have moved to there sites from other eCommerce platforms on their own, with out considering the SEO implications. Shopify has excellent SEO features built into the platform, but when ever you move from one platform to another, URL changes generally occur for all other URL's other than the homepage.
Adding eCommerce to Any Webpage
The Shopify Buy Button allows you to embed any item into a blog post. This can be a blog post on your own website or it can be a blog post on an external website such as a word press website. If you or an external blogger are doing a blog post, it helps to have buy button on the page where you or a blogger are blogging about one of your products because you have the ability to instantly convert the sales without having to leave the current page.
As part of Shopify Experts program, I get a fair amount of inquiries for website work and consultation. But one of my most recent inquiries, was just different enough to start raising tiny alarm bells in the back of my mind. The first inquiry was seemed innocent enough, an email about a site.
They use a legit site agroamerica.com as the site they want to use as a model.
Hi I'm Alex,

The Switch - Scam Alert
I was still skeptical because of the grammar and now the odd question. I was able to contact this "Alex" and it was a very poor connection, and his English was labored. He wanted to pay with Credit Card and wanted to pay a higher amount so that I could pay his project manager who supposedly had all the content and logos. As soon as I heard this it confirmed my previous suspicions "SCAM".

Scam Averted - Share With Your Colleagues
After getting off the phone, (scammers phone number (925) 318-1402 )I did a Google search for scams targeting website designers and found the exact second email I received in the comments for the article about the new scam.
So beware designers you are one of the newest targets. I was able to detect this threat in time but sooner would have been better. I am sure many of my fellow designers will also be targeted so I wanted to get the word out quickly. Please share this with your communities.
