When you're setting up your online store, you should think about how you want customers to find information about your business. You can create various pages such as webpages and policies in your Shopify admin and then link them to your online store's menu items.

With webpages and policies, you can provide more information about your business such as shipping times, store's contact information, refund policy, and others. Well-crafted webpages might reduce the number of support tickets, increase trust in your store and products, and set correct expectations for your customers.
