Looking to network with other young entrepreneurs.

Hi, I'm a 21M from Canada who's driven to achieve success in online business and I am looking for others who have the same aspirations with similar values, morals and beliefs to share insights and keep each other accountable, consistent and disciplined. I have mainly been doing e-commerce on/off over the past few years but I am open to connecting with those who are experimenting with other online business models.

If you are interested in connecting add my discord: .Redanktion.#0490

BEST EVER SHOPIFY STORE??! Can I please get a site review?


This is an ecommerce site with a twist,

We have games you can play for free, based on the characters from our universe, that exists in order to draw attention to and set free captive killerwhales, stop shark finning and clean up the ocean.

Our mission is to set free captive killerwhales…..but how?

You can see this in our movie and content. Ever heard of the PowerPuff Girls?
I am certain you didn't watch some yesterday, it left an impression on you,

just like Pokemon, Courage the Cowardly Dog….Crash Bandicoot….we are the next

We make an impression and draw attention to these problems and do so with art.

The movies and games are free and the products are how we make money, but we are coming out with a paid version of the game…

So like I say I am now looking for money to a) buy products and also b) advertising c) Game development to make a true classic we're not messing around but with all of this,

A proper plan of action will be made.

How can I find the investors I'm looking for? What do you think of the site? the games? Our mission?

How can I find the investors I'm looking for?

Thank you.

This is my new storefront with new drops every week. I've recently started doing promo work on social media (making short videos of my process, showing off final products, etc). Does anyone have any advice for how I could improve/drive sales? Feedback is greatly appreciated!

Shopify Guidance

I have been running my shop for a couple of yrs and l do make the odd random sale. I have not figured out how to set up calculated shipping which I think is killing conversions. The Look is very clunky because I am not that smart. Could really use suggestions on…
1:) A theme that would work well with my product. (has to kinda be plug and play again … not that smart)
2:) How to build a proper google ad campaign.
3:) Advice on how to set up calculated shipping – my product ranges from being able to be sent in an envelope to requiring a lift gate delivery service. So I cannot seem to sort out how to set up shipping for these differences. I sell on Etsy and am looking to be more independent as I am growing.
4:) Opinions on the trustworthiness feeling of my site.
5:) Optionally how to find trustworthy help that I can hire to help me.
I have sent 1000's of items and I have a great track record and excellent feedback reviews but it is mostly based on third-party site credibility, and I want to build my own customer base.

Bolt Mobility has vanished, leaving e-bikes, unanswered calls behind in several US cities

Bolt Mobility, the Miami-based micromobility startup co-founded by Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt, appears to have vanished without a trace from several of its U.S. markets. 

In some cases, the departure has been abrupt, leaving cities with abandoned equipment, unanswered calls and emails and lots of questions.

Bolt has stopped operating in at least five U.S. cities, including Portland, Oregon, Burlington, South Burlington and Winooski in Vermont and Richmond, California, according to city officials. City representatives also said they were unable to reach anyone at Bolt, including its CEO Ignacio Tzoumas.

TechCrunch has made multiple attempts to reach Bolt and those who have backed the company. Emails to Bolt’s communications department, several employees and investors went unanswered. Even the customer service line doesn't appear to be staffed. The PR agency that was representing Bolt in March of this year told TechCrunch it is no longer working with the company. 

Bolt halted its service in Portland on July 1. The company’s failure to provide the city with updated insurance and pay some outstanding fees, Portland subsequently suspended Bolt’s permit to operate there, according to a city  spokesperson. 

Bolt zooms than stalls

Bolt Mobility (not to be confused with the European transportation super app also named Bolt) was on what appeared to be a growth streak about 18 months ago. The company acquired in January 2021 the assets of Last Mile Holdings, which owned micromobility companies Gotcha and OjO Electric. The purchaser opened up 48 new markets to Bolt Mobility, most of which were smaller cities such as Raleigh, North Carolina, St. Augustine, Florida and Mobile, Alabama. 

After purchasing Last Mile's assets, Bolt agreed to continue as the bike share vendor in Chittenden County, Vermont, including cities Burlington, South Burlington and Winooski.

That license was even renewed in 2022, said Bryan Davis, senior transportation planner of the county. 

“We learned a couple of weeks ago (from them) that Bolt is ceasing operations,” Davis told TechCrunch via email, noting that Bolt ceased operations July 1, but actually informed the county a week later. “They’ve vanished, leaving equipment behind and emails and calls unanswered. We’re unable to reach anyone, but it seems they’ve closed shop in other markets as well.”

Sandy Thibault, executive director of Chittenden Area Transportation Management Association, told the Burlington Free Press that Bolt communicated that employees were being let go and the company’s board of directors was discussing next steps.

A spokesperson at Burlington relayed similar information.

“All of our contacts at Bolt, including their CEO, have gone radio silent and have not replied to our emails,” Robert Goulding, public information manager at Burlington’s Department of Public Works, told TechCrunch.

Davis went on to say that about 100 bikes have been left on the ground completely inoperable and with dead batteries. Chittenden County has given Bolt a time frame in which to claim or remove the company’s vehicles otherwise the county will take ownership of them.  

Bolt also appears to have stopped operating in Richmond, California, according to Richmond Mayor Tom Butt’s e-forum. 

“Unfortunately, Bolt apparently went out of business without prior notification or removal of their capital equipment from city property,” wrote Butt. “They recently missed the city’s monthly meeting check-in and have been unresponsive to all their clients throughout all their markets.”

Butt went on to say that the city is coming up with a plan to remove all the abandoned equipment – about 250 e-bikes that were available at hub locations like BART stations and the ferry terminal – and asked people to refrain from vandalizing the bikes until the city could come up with a solution. 

TechCrunch has reached out to several other cities in which Bolt operates and has not been able to confirm that the company has stopped operating entirely. In fact, a spokesperson from St. Augustine told TechCrunch Bolt’s bike share was running as usual.

Bolt’s social media has also been rather inactive in recent weeks. The company hasn’t posted on Instagram since June 11 or on Twitter since June 2. 

The last time TechCrunch heard from Bolt was nine months ago when the company was peddling its in-app navigation system that it dubbed “MobilityOS.” At the time, the startup promised that its next generation of scooters would include a smartphone mount that would double as a phone charger, but it’s unclear if those scooters ever hit the streets. 

Bolt has publicly raised $40.2 million, an amount that doesn’t include an undisclosed investment from India’s Ram Charan Company in May. Investors there could not be reached for comment.


Please help me with my store!

I am needing some help from some experienced people in ecommerce. I found a product about four months ago that I thought would be a winner, but that hasn't been the case. I will list all the information below. If I forget something please ask.

[I started the store on May 26]( I started with posting tiktok's myself while trying to find someone to shoot a video ad for me professionally. That didn't go well and the most views I got on a video was 500. Didn't make a sale.

[Found someone on tiktok to make a video ad for me]( She had roughly 16k followers. She posted the Tiktok, but didn’t receive any sales from her.

I then started running the video on FB ads on July 2nd. Since then I have had:

  • 4 Website Purchases (all from facebook ads)
  • 5k FaceBook Reach
  • 142 Link Clicks
  • 371 Store Visits (stat from shopify)

My daily limit for ad spend was set to $15, then $10, now $5 while I figure out what to do.

I tried running an ad on tiktok for a weekend plus a day, but didn’t see any results from it and with their minimum of $20 dollars a day, money was going fast so I shut that down.

Obviously something is not working out. Whether it is my store, ad, or product idk, but I hope to find the solution soon. Money is running low and my dream of running a successful ecommerce store is dimming more and more each day.

Shopify app idea feedback

Problem: Brands are plagued with “Where is my order?” emails. This means customer support doesn’t find out about a negative customer experience until they’re contacted about it – once the customer emails in they’re already upset and it’s usually too late. If they’re upset they’re unlikely to come back.

Solution: An app that alerts you when an order hasn’t yet been delivered as expected. You define how many days an order should be delivered within and if the order isn’t delivered, you’re alerted. You can then investigate and follow up with the customer if need be to stop a one-star experience in its tracks.

This will eventually be extrapolated to monitoring more of the customer journey to ensure a good experience.
