Shopify Plus overview

What is Shopify Plus?

Shopify Plus is a multi-channel eCommerce platform for large ventures, wholesalers, and enterprise level eCommerce shops which allows for high-demand sales, a higher level of customization, and scalability. Businesses can create multiple versions of their store for international eCommerce, automate custom campaigns, as well as customize their storefront, checkout page, and backend systems.

Shopify Plus includes an easy-to-navigate CMS for merchants, marketers, and eCommerce managers which enables them to manage products, content, and pricing without code, including conversion-tested themes for personalized design layouts and functionality. Users get full control over the entire checkout process, as well as access to over 100 payment gateways. Shopify Plus enables businesses to launch sales channels across marketplaces, mobile, social, and offline, with dedicated storefronts for international eCommerce.

Users are able to automate eCommerce campaigns and flash sales using Launchpad to schedule products and promotions for publishing across multiple channels. Custom design campaign themes allow customers to discover new products, special discounts, and exclusive sales, while real-time dashboards help track analytics and optimize performance. With Shopify Plus, high-value customers can be tagged and segmented for personalized services and offers, and discounts can be set for specific products or entire collections.

B2B eCommerce businesses can provide their customers including retailers, resellers, and high-volume accounts with an automated, self-service wholesale portal. Users can customize navigation and user experiences across all types of devices and screen sizes, with onsite search to optimize product discoverability. Shopify Plus offers an open API that allows businesses to integrate their existing ERP or CRM to sync inventory, customers, and orders.

Easy To Use & Great For Small Stores!

Easy store setup

Pros
Shopify Plus is great to use for the serious business owner. It allows you to set up a shop and start selling very quickly which is very appealing to many.

Cons
Shopify seems to have been built for very small size stores. While this is great for some, it is horrible for others. They also do not have any built in way to set up shipping based on product dimensions so if you have multiple products with different dimensions this is probably not the best website platform for you. Seems that we have to use many "work arounds" just to make things like shipping work. It can be a huge pain if you have a big store.

Pros
-Ease of use (my team loves the UI of the Shopify Plus back end far more than WooCommerce) -3rd party integrations galore -Really clean theme + shopping experience -Integrates with Lightspeed POS + Shipstation + Accumula for a powerful omnichannel setup

Cons
-The CMS and page building leaves a LOT to be desired compared to WordPress (though that was to be expected) -A little pricey

This is good option if you're lacking engineers to build a good experience

Pros
This allows marketing teams to handle their own promotions, change hero images, etc with a click of button and a visual editor. If you are lacking engineering resources, this is something you want to look into.

Cons
There's hardly any flexibility. If you want to do an integration with a vendor make sure the vendor plays well with Shopify. If it's not in their store you probably are going to have to build it out yourself. They also don't integrate with Sift Science anymore (of you're worried about fraud) and various other vendors.

Pros
I love Shopify Plus. It gets the job done efficiently. I appreciate how much can be customized, while still having great out of the box features.

Cons
There should be a native return application within Shopify.

Pros
Shopify Plus is expensive, but if it fits your business size it's worth it! For smaller businesses the lower levels of the Shopify Tiers are good for your size; but if Shopify Plus makes sense go for it. Specifically Shopify Flow and Shopify Script Editor on Plus have been game changers for our business! Shopify Flow makes day to day management of our store so much easier!

Cons
The library of "pre-built" Shopify scripts for Script Editor is very small. You definitely have to rely on third party sources and custom developers to build most scripts for even basic things.
