They think of just about everything

2018-08-10

Great! I'll never recommend a different eComm platform.

Pros

As a developer, I've set up eCommerce sites using Wordpress/WooCommerce, Wix, Volusion, and Shopify.

Cons

I have worked with Shopify sites for several years and I feel like the Shopify Basic plan is getting more basic. It seems like many new features that get developed require one of the higher plans ... which is understandable but also unfortunate; considering the start-up nature of many Shopify businesses. I think it'd be cool if the more expensive plans where cheaper for a 6 month period while the store (hopefully) gets up and running.

It's Pretty but it's Pricey!

2018-06-08

We use Shopify's Pro plan for all of our customer's online and over the phone orders. We have several apps added on to make it do what we want and plan to add others slowly. We also use the POS app at events to collect payment from clients. The POS app hasn't been very good to us - a lot of errors and glitches for the amount of volume we have.

Pros

You can continue to add features that make the site work the way you want it to. It's very aesthetically pleasing and super user friendly. Easy to learn and customers and staff can navigate through the site with ease.

Cons

We are paying over twice what we paid with Volusion to get the same amount of features.

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

Number One eCommerce Platform

2016-01-25

I have tested, Magento, Volusion and countless others.

Pros

Shopify is SaaS (Software as a service), which means no need for hosting, software updates, security seal and so on It include Integrated payment and reasonable fees Best of class customer service and support. Really the best. (Not mention that many other platform don't even have a customer support) Wonderful and easy to set up and use admin and back office. Great SEO Many add-ons and apps available. You can get started with practically no upfront cost. Shopify allows you to sell offline and online store

Cons

If you require many apps the cost per month could be somewhat expensive. Shopify created it's own script, called liquid, which may make it harder, in comparison with other platform, to find an experienced programmer.
