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.

Pros

It's an incredible programming for examination. I love the perception highlights since it transform drilling information into fun outlines or diagrams.
The ability to filter to the specific metric we are interested in is an amazing feature.
It is a good data analytics and visualization software and its ability to import data from multiples sources is a great feature.

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.

Cons

Could be frustrating to use when first starting as it would give you an error message but provide no specifics on what is wrong or directions to fix it.
I find it a bit frustrating when presented with a visualisation that doesn't represent the particular angle on the data I am looking for.
Had to take some training courses and even at that it was still confusing.

I couldn't believe how customer-friendly Shopify was! Save hours of man-power on fall enrollments!

Pros

An organization that I sat on the board of used this service to capture enrollment and payment. As a customer I literally spent less than 2 minutes taking care of enrollment. Easiest enrollment ever!

Cons

I had no problems with it. We used it and we loved it!

Great for starting out - a little underwhelming with growth

Great so far! Super easy to use. Just not as much customization for power users.

Pros

Great software to get things started. Created with the user in mind with little to no knowledge so setup is super easy.

Cons

Customization needs with growth has been a little bit wanting. Still, it's hard to get too upset over this.

robust, user friendly

Reviewed 2 years ago

as a growth manager in a start up i am a power user of shopify, using it on daily basis.

Pros

the shop i am working on is in shopify plus - which is a more robust, more sophisticated version with a better support. i am generally pretty satisfied with what it offers - i have a tech background, but i would be able to do a lot even without the coding experience. it is very user friendly in that sense -- a lot of functionalities offer the possibility to omit dev work.

Cons

the one thing i would point out is the CMS-given limitations that have a negative impact on site speed and negatively effect the overall google score - therefore lower the SEO score

Shopify is easy and powerful

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

I’ve set up, modified and run many Shopify e-commerce stores in the last few years. Without any coding or technical knowledge I am able to create beautiful, customized and highly functional e-commerce businesses. The user interface is easy and intuite. They have tonnes of templates, some free, some That are super affordable all the way up to super expensive ones. Once you have a great template is is so easy to modify and customize. As for the engine driving the e-commerce part, creating and editing products, pricing and promos, billing and fulfilment, integrating with other external tools like CRM or email tools. It’s easy, affordable and does an amazing job. Until you are selling over 100k a month, this will do the trick.

Cons

Once you become a power user, you sometime wish the editing tools were a little more powerful and with more time saving features.

Easy to use, vastly powerful, but can go further

Reviewed 7 years ago
Pros

There's many features of Shopify's platform that I enjoy, including user, product, and order management. Having a basic blog is also fantastic. However, it's the power of it's template system that really makes Shopify shine. It's easy for web developers and designers really make Shopify their own visually.

Cons

The reliance on paid-for plugins with monthly payments. It's poison and will be the system's eventual downfall. The ability to print labels and manage shipped items- tracking numbers, service integrations (USPS/UPS/DHL/etc) is absolutely imperative and until Shopify integrates these basic features into the system, many developers and designers will still have a hard time taking Shopify as seriously as other solutions.

Pros

Shopify is rock solid. It is very easy to use and the apps are amazing. You can quickly customize the functionality of your store by adding in apps from the marketplace. The power behind this software is incredible with what you can quickly and easily accomplish by adding just a few apps.

Cons

Sometimes the cost of the apps can be a bit much. When you have several monthly charges they can add up quickly.

Pros

If you are opening your first online store, Shopify is one of the most recommended platforms because it is so user-friendly and easy to set up. It offers templates to build your storefront.

Cons

Shopify's basic plan lacks some great features that I personally enjoy as a consumer such as personalized productions, real-time shipping/tracking, and reward points. Also, unless you use Shopify's payment option power by Stripe, their fees range per transaction. Before you choose what e-commerce platform to go with, do your research, figure out your projected sales, and read the fine print.

The best and easiest solution to small business ecommerce.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I'm a small business owner, selling lifestyle jewelry and photography services on two Shopify sites. It allows me to process credit cards, PayPal payments, create inventory lists, shipping labels, tax forms, and more all from one single dashboard. It's not a cheap solution, but if you have any sort of business volume you'll quickly cover your annual costs. I've been using Shopify for several years and just recently took a break, but I have no doubt that when I'm ready to relaunch I'll be renewing with Shopify to revamp my websites and start making money again. There really is no other or better option - the competition is more expensive and at a lower quality.

Pros

Creating a website, stocking product, and launching my store was so incredibly simple. I customized a pre-made template with custom colors and a custom typeface, made a mobile version, and then logged my inventory is just a few hours. I now have two Shopify sites!

Cons

The gallery views and hover-over animations are a bit limited. I wish I could combine the drag-and-drop customization of Wix with the ecommerce power of Shopify. Right now, I'm just filling in text blocks and the template dictates what goes where. If you can work within those confines you're set, but if you want more freedom like I do you may get frustrated at times.

No more struggling to create an eCom website. I started creating websites and promoting my products a little bit late than others, but I was speechless once I started with Shopify the ease of use they give you to kickstart your project is astonishing. With Shopify you are limitless and you are always motivated to go further and further building your business and getting it to the next level. Thank you for having great software that makes everything easy.

Pros

Free themes: A friendly dashboard to complete your website in a blink of an eye Real cheap: With only $29 you can design, track your product, manage your clients, and so on... High secured platform: It gives you the power of creating your website and never ever worry about getting hacked or struggle with the server downtime. Unlimited plugins and APPS: Yes it's like having an iPhone and you want to download an app for it, the Shopify app store is limitless any kind of app and plugins is available, and easy to install. Customer service is available 24h/7 by email/Online Chat/ FAQ Community: Huge community and video explanatory contents. YOU NEVER STRUGGLE.

Shopify is still the standard for online retail on-the-fly

Reviewed 3 years ago

I'd recommend Shopify to anyone who wants to get up and running selling products quickly without having to have any knowledge whatsoever of design or development. Depending on the seller's market, however, Etsy, Zazzle, or even ebay, might be a better solution for some folks.

Pros

If you've had any experience with setting up online stores, other than WooCommerce which is a different beast, you'll be right at home in Shopify's backend. Why? Because the platform pretty much invented it. Anyone who wants to sell products online or sell digital downloads will find it dead simple to set up a shop quickly. The themes are surprisingly nice, too, even the free ones. As far as power-seller features, the basic plan provides the option to send out notifications for visitors who have abandoned their carts. This is both a thoughtful bonus but also a pretty savvy upsell strategy. Considering how effective abandoned-cart emails are in bringing customers back in, a shop on the basic plan will increase sales and therefore be ripe for an upgrade. Win-win.

Cons

If you're making any kind of real money, you'll need to upgrade. Not sure most store owners can keep up with the fees and scale their business at the same time. I prefer WordPress because most of my clients are asking for membership site and online courses. There are add-on apps for Shopify providing these features but they can't compete with a WordPress solution in terms of features, support, and value. IMO, of course.

The Go To Platform For eCommerce

Reviewed 4 years ago

Using Shopify as your eCommerce platform now is a no-brainer as far as I am concerned. For an extremely reasonable monthly fee, creating an online store has never been more of a steal.

Pros

As a web design & developer, I have worked on many projects involving the Shopify platform, and I have nothing but good things to say about it. Creating stores with it makes life easier for me, my client, and the customer. Picking/editing themes, uploading products, creating collections, and customizing pages are all made easy for the client. This saves the developer so much time to not have to create...

Cons

A Shopify grows rapidly, some days the platform will go down due to busy server load, but very briefly. These minor hiccups do not prevent me from giving it a 10/10.
