Connect your store
You can connect your store directly from the Wix, Shopify, or BigCommerce App Marketplaces.
You can also connect your store directly on your Modalyst account.

You will then see that this step is indicated as completed.
**You can also expand and collapse this onboarding section at any time by clicking on the arrow on the right.**
Adjust your Pricing Rules
The Pricing Rules define a markup of your items and help you control your margins. You can have different markups per inventory source (name brands, indie brands, trendy items, AliExpress).
You can also select to add the cost of shipping into the price of the item. This gives you the chance to offer free shipping while the cost of shipping is paid for by the customer as the product price. Don’t forget to save your settings.
After you have saved your Pricing Rules, go back to FIND PRODUCTS to complete the rest of the steps to set up your store.

There are 2 ways to find products to sell.
- You can add products through our Modalyst Marketplace, or
