    Shopify Makes B2C Easy and Affordable

    Reviewed 10 days 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

    The Most Easy to Use CMS for Building a Virtual Store

    Reviewed a month ago

    As an owner of a digital marketing agency, I often need to build virtual stores for my clients. Normally most of the clients are the owners of small businesses and they can't afford to hire a professional developer for maintaining their e-commerce store. This is why I was looking for a platform that will help my clients maintain the site by themselves without going through a steep learning curve. Then...

    Pros

    The most interesting thing about Shopify is that it needs no technical knowledge to get started. But that doesn't mean you can't use advanced features on this CMS. Using plugins, themes, templates all are quite easy on this platform and you don't need a full-time maintainer to manage your small business store made by using Shopify. Another great feature of Shopify is the integration with various payment...

    Cons

    Honestly speaking I didn't find any major cons while using the software. I have some small stores as well as some big e-commerce shops running on Shopify and I didn't miss any features while building those. But I have a few suggestions about improving the product. For example, the mobile layout of the site should be more lightweight so that it loads faster on slow internet devices. Also, if you can introduce a free plan with limited features that will help most small businesses.

    Good for small businesses

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    Overall my experience with Shopify has been good only due to finding out how to customize and change the liquid coding. If it wasn't for Shopify forums or online articles, my online store would not work or function how we need it to be. Shopify also pushes apps that you have to pay for to solve a lot of issues that you will have. It is easy to track orders and send out email notifications, so it has helped us out a lot in the end.

    Pros

    Shopify is great at starting up small businesses or individual sellers in the ecommerce world. I liked how simple it was to setup following all their instructions. I also like the different variety of themes to choose from. Customizing your website is also fairly simple and user friendly, just like the rest of Shopify.

    Cons

    A lot of customizations had to be done to get Shopify to fit our needs. A lot of this is backend work which requires coding. Thankfully the Shopify forums can help out with that, so a beginner can still do it. There are issues with Shopify shipping rates and other small details that you think would be with standard with every ecommerce platform.

    Shopify: A Viable Option, to quickly set up and manage an Online Store with ease.

    Reviewed 16 days ago

    For me, Shopify (+ Shopify Plus) is the platform par excellence to efficiently and successfully implement e-commerce projects. Even with limited resources, you can sell here on enterprise level without worries and grow later without any problems. Through the large Shopify universe, there is an enormous collective wealth of experience with top talent in the development and consulting of e-commerce projects of any size. We are now implementing many new webshop projects in Shopify. The ease of use makes it great to work collaboratively with different departments on the store. Especially the integrated CDN hosting and the associated performance is really top-notch.

    Pros

    Shopify offers the possibility to implement ideas directly. Thanks to the modular system, stores can be set up literally within minutes. The existing payment module can be set up, and apps can be installed for analysis, marketing, and aesthetics. Especially for e-commerce newcomers without much background experience in web design, the foundation can be laid quickly and the noticeable progress in success motivates to continue. Anyone who wants to get from A to B quickly and loves Pareto will also love Shopify!

    Cons

    Due to the simple operation and the now widespread use of Shopify, you run the risk of developing a store 'like any other'. Structure and basic structures are always very similar and require code adaptations to stand out from the crowd. Especially for newcomers, custom coding can be overwhelming, which often leads to the necessity of paid apps or the consultation of specialized web developers, as soon as something "special is required".
