Selling Merchandise

Good afternoon,

How do I sell merchandise such as t-shirts on Cloudflare? I was using Shopify before but don’t know what to do now?

Hi @umifeeds,

Cloudflare isn’t a web host and won’t host an online shop as you have done before. You will still need a platform such as Shopify, and then you can use Cloudflare’s security/performance services on that website, if you want.

I’m not familiar with any of this. When I looked to see who was hosting the message I got is “Cloudflare” is hosting my site. This is not my area of expertise.

You will see that if you are using Cloudflare on your website, it doesn’t mean the site is actually hosted by Cloudflare.

You can think of Cloudflare sitting between your website and you, so when you ask that service who is hosting the site, it just sees Cloudflare. There is still a web host hosting the site.

Okay. Gotcha. Thank you for that. So, how do I know who the host is? I just recently had some folks working on the site and we changed to Cloudflare. Previously, I was using Shopify. I don’t know if I still or it’s being hosted by Wordpress which is what they might’ve set up.

No problem, it looks like is is using WooCommerce for the shop, running on WordPress.

You can use a site like https://builtwith.com/umifeeds.org to see what a site is using, it is generally fairly accurate!

With the hosting provider, it’s difficult to tell when a site is behind Cloudflare (one of the features is hiding the IP address of the server!). If you can, I would get the details from whoever did the work on the site for you.
