Shopify has cost my business thousands of dollars - terrible support and even worse programmers

2018-10-30

Anyone who is considering eCommerce platforms should NOT start with Shopify, but rather Volusion, Lemonstand, or, if you can afford it, get a programmer for Magento.

Pros

-Attractive interface -Attractive buy buttons

Cons

-Terrible programmers -Huge wait times for service -Customer service reps are poorly trained and fail to assist with almost all issues -Extremely buggy software

Most customizable flat-fee ecommerce solution

2017-10-11

It's a great ecommerce solution for business looking to customize their site without giving up a percentage of their sales to the ecommerce giants of the world.

Pros

I find it much easier to use than Shopify and similar products.

Cons

Their documentation is pretty terrible but they're supposedly working on it. A lot of their features, though totally usable, feel thrown together just to exist but lack refinement. They've got everything you need but to be effective but it may be a while before the quality is there to make it the most efficient tool.

only limited by my own lack of coding knowledge

Pros

I like the LemonStand site. The Customer service is fantastic. The price is incredibly low comparatively plus there is no transactional percentage charged which is really nice. The themes are readily editable IF YOU KNOW CODING OR CAN HIRE A PRO.

Cons

I had read that coding was necessary but one review said it was comparable to coding in Shopify. Unfortunately, I am a novice and while I did a great job with my shopify site (to include implementing custom coding) I was not successful with LemonStand.
