Ux should be improved

Great for young businesses getting started

12/03/2017

Great product and value for smaller shops. Base level reporting could be enhanced as well as inventory management. You need to rely on the Shopify app store to do some seemingly simple tasks, which can make the experience cumbersome at times. I do highly recommend for newer shops but can become a bit of an administrative headache when dealing with multiple POS locations.

Developers beware -- restrictions abound!

02/03/2017

I've had clients tell me that they find Shopify sites relatively simple to administer, and that may be true, but as a developer it's a nightmare. Not only is their interface extremely unintuitive, but their system has lots of random restrictions which can make your life a nightmare. For a start you need to use their proprietary language, Liquid. Community support is thin on the ground. The Shopify support can be excellent or terrible, depending on who you get through to. It's simply no fun for a developer :(

ShipStation really does make Ship easy!

27/02/2017

Pros

I love the integration with eCommerce channels. we integrate with both square space and woocommerce on Wordpress. Basically, I log into ShipStation and it communicates back to these channels and those apps have automated Notification of the shipment process to the customer including tracking numbers. The iPhone app is awesome too. I have it in a graded in with my watch and can see Sales pop and ready to be delivered/shipped

Cons

There have been a couple of times where the refresh for new shipments popping in is slow. I can't fault their app as I'm not sure how the API Integrations sync up from a timing perspective.

Great extra options

22/02/2017

Shopify is great if you have a less then typical selling situation. It has tons of add on options. That being said, I feel like the platform and all the extras are getting a little pricy.

Perfect eCommerce platform for the non-technical

13/02/2017

Shopify is the best eCommerce platform for the non-technical store owner. They're leading the pack in hosted services for good reason. The only thing to watch out for is the massive price increases for their premium plans.

The best solution for a quick and efficient eCommerce shop

07/02/2017

Been using it for DropShipping service. I could set up my shop in a day. Started selling within a week.

Pros

Perfectly crafted for eCommerce

Cons

Pricing a bit too high for someone who is just starting. Here, WPengine is a better alternative to experiment through.
