Why choose Shopify for your eCommerce business?

Shopify is one of the best ecommerce platforms out on the market today. It is designed to help people build their own online store with hundreds of features built in, as well as an variety of apps.

It is quite straight forward in terms of use and a simple interface. You can sell products directly on your website, and across multiple marketplaces and social media platforms.

Below are some pros and cons to using Shopify eCommerce:

Ideal for big stores
Shopify’s powerful backend editor and impressive inventory system make it ideal for managing  larger stores or business with many stock keeping units.
Not as easy to use as other platforms
Shopify’s editor is not as intuitive as it could be and takes a while to get the hang of however customer reports show easier management compared to that of a WooCommerce setup. * Opinions vary based on computer literacy levels *
Multi-platform selling
Shopify enables you to sell across multiple channels, including Facebook, Instagram, Amazon, and more.
Reliant on apps
Shopify has fewer built-in features than other platforms, so you will need to use apps to really boost the functionality of your store.
Stand-out design functionality and flexibility
Shopify enabled you to choose from several free and paid templates, or if you cannot find one to match, I can help you create your own from scratch.
High transaction fees
Unless you use Shopify Payments, you will need to pay an additional transaction fee, on top of other payment gateway costs fees of 2%, 1% or 0.5% for the Basic Shopify, Shopify, and Advanced Shopify plans, respectively.
Many apps available
Shopify has an incredible library of apps and third-party extensions to help you elevate your store to the next level.
More expensive than meets the eye
Sneaky transaction fees, plus the need for additional apps, can raise the monthly cost of running your store.
Widespread payment options
Shopify supports over 99+ payment options, as well as providing their own gateway, Shopify Payments.
