    Pros
    We love that is is really use to use, to manage the products and check the orders. It is very user friendly, which is really helpful when you have a large team.
    I love how easy it is to check out. I love there is a card swiping device too so payments are flawlessly done.
    Shopify is a popular tool with great support that makes it easy to get started an online e-commerce business. It has also great integration across different platforms like Laptops/PCs and smartphones.
    Cons
    Was not very much support on the stubborn aps that refuse to leave when you delete them.
    Sometimes on the app I have trouble tracking my package either error from the sending company or from the something on my end in not understanding the app to it's fullest.
    Bad practice, leaves a bad taste in the mouth. No other company does that.

    Shopify Makes B2C Easy and Affordable

    Reviewed a year ago

    Shopify has been fundamental in helping us to grow our e-commerce side of the business without causing too much work for us to maintain

    Pros

    Shopify really is the “keep it simple” solution that creates a good experience for the customer. This is probably the most important aspect as it is the impression you make to a customer before they actually receive your product

    Cons

    Sometimes you desire more features and often you need a 3rd party add on to make it happens. Not all 3rd party add-ons are straight forward and so sometimes it can take some work to make things as you want them

    Great application to get started.

    Reviewed a month ago

    Overall, my experience with Shopify has been very positive. It is a reliable and feature-rich platform that has helped me easily set up and manage my online store. While it may be more expensive than some other options, I feel that the additional features and customer support make it worth the cost.

    Pros

    Shopify is a very user-friendly e-commerce platform that allows users to easily set up and manage an online store. It provides a variety of customizable templates and themes, making it easy to create a visually appealing and professional-looking website.Shopify offers a wide range of features and tools to help businesses manage and grow their online store, including inventory management, payment processing, shipping and fulfillment, and marketing and advertising tools.The platform also offers excellent customer support, with a knowledgeable and helpful team available to answer questions and provide assistance.

    Cons

    One potential downside of Shopify is that it can be more expensive than some other e-commerce platforms, especially for businesses that require a large number of features or advanced customization options.Some users have also reported that the platform can be somewhat slow and prone to glitches, although these issues are usually resolved quickly by the Shopify support team.

    Shopify is the Yahoo Stores for a New Generation

    Reviewed 7 months ago

    We are only now setting up the store and getting into using the software so my opinion may change over time (although I doubt it will be for the better). Like Yahoo Stores before them they felt the need to write their own program language for the store instead of using tried and true coding that everyone knows or understands at this point. Making it difficult to change or adjust your store template...

    Pros

    Modern eCommerce selling features. Hopefully better shopping experience for our customers than our old solution.

    Cons

    Monthly fees PLUS a per transaction fee. Uses a custom script/language instead of standard coding. (Liquid). Does not utilize WebDAV or FTP for file uploads. Does not allow import/export of anything other than basic product information without use of a third party app. Relies on 3rd party apps to offer features other carts offer out of the box. Cannot customize the checkout process, must do what they say is best. Poor SEO controls.

    Excellent software for non-technical users who need quick set-up and easy management

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Overall I love Shopify for its plug-and-play capabilities, overall ease of use and excellent support, however, it becomes very expensive very quickly if you want to do anything more than the absolute basics of e-commerce, making it prohibitive for small businesses to scale.

    Pros

    Usability is excellent. Very quick and easy to set up and understand basic e-commerce stores with many templates to choose from, mobile responsiveness, all basic e-commerce features included. Help resources and live support is also top-tier.

    Cons

    Customisations become tricky and quickly become very expensive. Many additional features require the use of or subscription to paid apps which can escalate set-up and running costs very quickly, and transaction fees are high, impacting profit margins significantly.
