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

The best part for me is that woocommerce is free providing an excellent e-commerce environment for fresh users containing a variety of different features.
I can only recommend WooCommerce as the simplest and the best solution that saves you thousands of dollars in development.
All in all, it is the single best shopping solution for Wordpress. I used it on a few websites that I made and I loved it mainly because it was very easy and quick to set up.

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

However, I can see if folks are not inclined to be DIY about this they might be annoyed with the lack of documentation WITHIN Wordpress.
My overall experience was extremely frustrating and disappointing.
A bit limited in functionality and if you need additional plugins it can end up being quite costly and complex to mantain updates.

Take the work out of selling online

Reviewed 3 years ago

If you're not a tech/web geek, this is the way to go. You list and item and they pretty much handle the technology side of it. A great way to sell online, just make sure you have the volume to cover their fees. Not a great option if you only do a few sales a month.

Pros

It just works. It's simple to have an online store without fighting with SSL certs and payment processors. I spent hours and hours getting woocommerce working, maintenance, etc. Shopify does the work for you so you can focus on selling.

Cons

Fees are high compared to woocommerce or similar but worth it.

Inexpensive Ecommerce Platform

Reviewed 4 months ago

Overall Shopify is a nice Ecommerce platform that is more affordable than Woocommerce.

Pros

I like the pricing tiers, where I can upgrade as my business grows, they have a lot of blog posts to help businesses. I like their tutorials to help the user use Shopify, it isn’t hard to understand and do yourself. You can also integrate a lot of third party apps. I also like that they have an app I can use on other devices, if I don't want to be on my computer.

Cons

I think the dashboard could be better and easier to use, it could use more free templates to customize. Some third party apps aren't that great.

I would recommend shopify for any small business wanting to quickly set up an online store.

Pros

Your time will be saved managing web hosting, technical errors, etc. This will allow you to focus on running your business.

Good commerce option

Reviewed 2 years ago

Generally useful - does what it needs to. It's got great flexibility - perfect for small business owners, but can't imagine this scaling to large multi-location companies

Pros

It's got basic commerce functionalities - with apps, it can be as robust as Wordpress/woocommerce with a cleaner and more organized interface

Cons

I don't like how to add functionalities, I need to buy third party apps. Wish everything was in one platform, but I guess it's like Wordpress, having to turn to third party plugins.

The Apple of ecommerce platform

I find Shopify to be super easy to set-up and start using out of the box, unlike having to install magento or woocommerce.

Pros

I have been using Shopify for a few years now and find it to be easy to use, reliable and scalable.

Cons

My main worry about using Shopify is that I don't really own the platform so anything can happen in terms of changes in their business model etc.

We use Shopify w/ Wordpress for almost all ecommerce solutions

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Shopify is a fantastic, simple tool for basic ecommerce solutions. We use it for clients that don't have a ton of products, and want a simple ecommerce system that they can edit and adjust themselves. Shopify makes integrating payment solutions easy as well. It works great with Wordpress (our most used CMS) so it is our go to for ecommerce as well.

Cons

Shopify isn't as great when it comes to products with large variation - and we've found woocommerce to be a slightly better service for that.

I've had no problems with Shopify. I like that it's similar to wordpress but perfect for ecommerce. We host all our ecommerce clients on Shopify.

Shopify is fantastic. It's easy to build out your site and everything works as it should. It's also a dream on the SEO side of things, in my opinion better than Woocommerce.

Cons

Like any software like this, you have to know what you're doing. Not everyone can build websites, so the builder could be more helpful but this could change in the future.
