My Shopify Review

Reviewed a year ago

Highly recommended for people who want to start a online retail business.

Pros

You can literally have a store online, customers making purchases of their choice. With detailed information on products. Easy with very secure payments. There are multiple plugins & themes making your store stand out from the rest. Online retail store which is your main website. On Facebook, there's a tab where users can access your store & make purchases. On Messenger you can send a direct message to customers who are interested in your products. With Amazon, it allows you to manage Amazon listings & Shopify products in one location. On Instagram you can make posts shop able for example adding price tags & details on the product.

Cons

Its not a free platform to use. Monthly subscription cost. 14 free trial not enough for a upcoming individual/s who want to get started with Shopify. To get the advanced Shopify costs $299 which is expensive.

Shopify - a good option!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Shopify solves a big need if you have an e-retail component of your business. For my clients who need to have retail on their websites, it's my top recommendation.

Pros

Shopify is very user friendly and seems to be one of the best in the industry. I recommend it to my clients who have e-retail needs and so far all have been very satisfied. The integration into the Websites is very easy and works well.

Cons

I really do not have any cons for Shopify. From my experience, it has been easy to use and the customer service has been good.

Your eCommerce starter platform

Reviewed a year ago

Amazing for what it is and the price you pay. Besides that, there are tons of plugins to choose from, both paid and free.

Pros

If you want to start an eCommerce store, then go for Shopify, easy to use, quick to implement, premade designs, and scalable. It's also good for mid-size businesses. You don't need a developer to start a store.

Cons

Limited options for customizing the platform. If you have a different business model than a retail traditional one then probably Shopify is not the best way to go.

Shopify Fit Our Needs Perfectly And Continues To Impress

Reviewed 5 months ago

Until the end of 2020 we had a legal forms business, selling paper and electronic forms both in a storefront retail setting and via our website. We had to close the retail space and substantially streamline and simplify our website as it had been custom-coded and was complicated and expensive to maintain. Shopify offered a turnkey solution at a fraction of what we'd been paying – pretty much a no-brainer.

Pros

Setting up our company and its shop was very easy, as well as finding a visual theme that suited us and meshed well with our existing branding. There's a wealth of free themes, and countless additional paid ones, so it's hard to imagine anyone not finding what they need. Shopify's core functions are quite complete and comprehensive, but if you find there's something they don't do for you out of the box, chances are good that there's a third-party app that will answer the need, and usually for not very much additional expense.

Cons

Importing existing products into the store was a pretty big project (although of course, not all new store creators have 200-300 products they need to start up with like we did), and editing and/or customizing those products can be time-consuming and sometimes awkward. There are times when I'd really like to multiple-select several products and modify the same attribute for all of them, but the system doesn't support this. I have a feeling they'll add support for this kind of thing somewhere down the line.

Is a fast, straightforward to set up e-commerce complete system for the start-up or small business

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Shopify is an all-inclusive product that has an optional retail pack. You can have bricks and mortar storefront AND an online store that integrates nicely with it. A great solution for selling online.

Cons

The cheapest plan is Shopify Lite, but it does not include an online store (you can sell on Facebook, offline and via Paypal style BUY buttons). Be prepared to pay some good dollars for all the bell and whistles.

A Great and Convenient Way to Sell Your Stuff

Pros

Shopify is fantastic in the commercial retail and personal retail businesses as you do not have to be an accredited business to list items for sale. Anyone can sell their products or belongings using this secure, convenient app. The interface is very user-friendly, including their phone app.

Cons

The store builder for building an online store/website leaves a bit to be desired, but this is from a technical stand-point from a person who has had complete control over the coding of their websites in the past.

Shopify, The easiest way to set up a retail website for your business.

Reviewed 7 months ago

Shopify is simple and gets the job done easily, if you are looking to run a retail business online.

Pros

I like that Shopify is super easy to use, with no coding knowledge required to make a retail website that looks professional. I like the fact that you can set up different forms of payment for customers to use, giving them more choice and safety.

Cons

I do not like the fact that you have to pay a monthly fee to use Shopify and that there are no free options other than a trial. This can be costly especially if business sales are low and you need to cover the cost for Shopify.

SHOPIFY FLEXIBIITY FOR THE MOBILE MERCHANT

Reviewed 4 years ago

The Shopfiy system continues to impress us daily as we continue to find new features or they update the software with new features that make our retail management easier. The system is continually in a spiral development and I assume adapts to client provided feedback. The latest function we found that impressed us is the ability to utilize our mobile phones to scan a bar code on a product when processing a transaction and have it added to the cart of the client. We have bar code scanners that we use, but this was a nice backup feature in case our bar code scanner is not working and we are at a remote event site away for replacement bar code scanners.

Pros

Utilizing Shopfiy for our retail management has been an incredibly wise decision for our business model. We operate both an online store but also an in store retail operations as well as a mobile retail when attending events. Shopify's flexibility to meet all three of these requirements has been second to none. The system has allowed us to have more frequent promotional sales, highlight retail items for special pricing for inventory clearance, and allows for special discounts. The inventory management capability has allowed for much more accurate inventory monitoring and reordering of retail items. This list of things we like most goes on and on.

Cons

The only thing that would be a draw back is our monthly cost of this software. We receive a non-profit discount for the monthly cost, but a lower cost would always be beneficial for the organization as well as lower processing fees, but their fees are pretty much industry average.

Overall, Shopify has been a vital part of our software platform line up. The templates for purchase are easy to customize so your store looks very professional. Save the money you'd pay a developer and DIY.

Pros

Shopify's ecommerce platform is great for those just getting started in the online retail business. The software is intuitive and user friendly. The app store is chock full of awesome options to help run your business more efficiently.

Cons

Unfortunately, customer support is, at times, non-existent. If something goes wrong, your shop may be down for a period of time while you wait for support or search for an answer and solve the problem yourself. Obviously, this can be quite costly when it happens.

Lots of background layouts to chose from, can change them daily if you wanted to . I liked the shipping charge options based on country or sales price. Can delete info quickly when items sell out.

Inexpensive solution that is fairly easy to add new products and customers. Good for our small business.

Cons

Clunky to review / update pricing - you have to click through several links to get to the pricing per item. Also clunky to navigate through the product catalog - you have to advance 1 page at a time rather than being able to skip to specific page numbers. Re-ordering products on a specific page is very cumbersome as well.
