Shopify is a Clean, Responsive E-commerce Solution

Used daily for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Helped a friend setup multiple online businesses.If you want to stick to just basics and you need a clean, responsive E-commerce site, then Shopify is for you. No programming knowledge is required and there are many fine templates to choose from, and you can always find more. If you are interested in starting online, Shopify is a good choice because it offers a PCI compliant and secure shopping cart and payment gateway solution. Adding products to Shopify is surprisingly fast and easy but you are limited to 100 Variants. Shipping integration with USPS, UPS and Fedex is included and integrates with many popular software via Add ons. Things like email marketing, product feeds, and popups are easy to find and setup. And you can export your products to Google, and setup customer reviews with some other add ons. Having all these extra with add ons is both good and bad, and customers should be aware of the small downsides to Shopify.

Good UI but some of the simple options available with other ecommerce products are unavailable or cost extra. For example, if you want to calculate shipping for each item (as opposed to a flat shipping charge) you have to pay extra monthly. Also, you cannot adjust image sizes. If you want a different size image for the category page and the product page, you have to upload 2 images.

Shopify Perks & Shortcomings

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Software Advice

Overall, Shopify is the clear leader in their industry. Do they have shortcomings? Sure. But compared to their competitors, the shortcomings are few and far between. After all, no system will ever be exactly perfect to your unique business unless you decide to build your own software which comes with the glitches and lack of functionality that building your own software entails. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE. Shopify is entirely unparalleled in this regard. Their live chat option is not only convenient but staffed by PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT! They are not an outside tech support and it is clear how well each of them is versed in the system and its capabilities. Another amazing feature about Shopify is the plethora of apps that are available in order to customize your system (many of which are free!). This means that if Shopify is lacking in any way in terms of your particular business needs, there is definitely an app for it.

We saved a lot of time and money to build our own website. Most importantly we can be assured by the stable service. 1. Easy to use and hassle free. Analytics is super helpful. 2. There are some learning curves but it is easy to get accustomed. Shopify constantly add up new features like social network integrations, new sales channels, added security and so on. 3. A lot of Apps to try although it is the double-edged sword. It is easy to determine which app you will pick based on a lot of reviews compared to different platforms. 4. Their default payment system - Stripe is very easy to set up. PayPal and Amazon Payment integrations are also very easy to set up. 5. Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram shopping integration is awesome. It is really helpful either send more customers to your website or real sales on those platforms. 6. Amazon and eBay integrations are not that great but worth to try.

Quick and cheap setupReally easy to setup without any technical knowledge and very cheap options. I find it ideal for startups beginning their journey and business that want to go online with very low investment needed. It has also a wide ecosystem of plugins that you and add for the non out of the box functionalities, a lot of them for free and really easy to install and configure. Also one thing to remark is that you don't need to worry about hosting or capability as you scale the business as they take care of all of that + CDN for best perfomance. Also it has a more professional suite just in case you need more support.

I have benefited a lo from Shopify. Shopify has surely helped me in running my online business. I haven¿t earned much yet through this platform because I feel I¿m still new to this online realm. I have more online presence with an increasing customer base. I can sell my products easily without any hassle. The return I am getting from just a small investment in this portal, this is just astonishing. As everything is online, I don't have to give this business a lot of attention as I know it still keeps on running without my intervention. The analysis feature helps a lot in marketing my product to the right market further bringing in more income for me. My inventory is well managed, payments are received securely and also my customers are growing. Clearly this is quite beneficial for the expansion of my business-Shopify lets you sell via your Facebook page -Allows you to use Shopify in a physical location to sell goods / manage inventory -Gives you access to Shopify's Buy Button, which allows you to sell goods on an existing website or blog. -Top notch security measures keeping my transactions secured -Brilliant customer support team -Keeps a track of my inventory in a much effecient way -Get detailed analysis and reports on my sales and forecasts -Easy to use and understand software -Interface is well designed making me addicted to the software -Integration with Paypal -Value for money is great as the cheapest package starts from $9/month

Blazing fast developments, more customers, more earningsShopify is a platform focused on product and inventory managment for your online sales. It allows you to tack your inventory and have reports on your sales. You might say "well, others can do that as well" and the answer is yes, but can they do it better? Shopify is a software as a service, self hosted with a monthly pament. For setting up a quick shop for someone not tech saavy at all Shopify is perfetc, just a few clicks and you're earning money.

It's really easy to integrate different applications and tune-up your store. Thing is, some of the applications are very cheap and very easy to implement because they're made for the platform- That's the real beauty of Shopify for me. Custom platforms are the best way to go when only you're ready for the investment they require, and I, having over 6 years of experience with website management, would definitely not recommend that venture especially if you're a starter. You cut very key costs and just pay subscription- a whole building of Shopify company-hired developers work to make the platform better. Shopify is just easy, and it is very scalable which makes it a great choice for a store that sells a lot of different products. If you're selling 1-5 products, I would recommend a funnel.

Love Shopify. Over 10 different online stores with Shopify currently running and I love every second of it! Great software!!Shopify is the greatest E-Comm platform around and here's why. You can build a 1000+ product online store in under 5 hours (assuming you have your inventory database completed). You can import a theme from Shopify and give your store a beautiful, mobile optimized design, import your products, and launch your store so fast it will make your head spin. Shopify Payments is really easy to set up and really eliminates the whole "merchant service" middle-man piece that used to be an annoying step in building an online store. You also have full access to liquid html and CSS that can be easily customized, especially if you are a well-versed coder, and make your site as custom as you'd like...just stay within the general guidelines otherwise it may not optimize as you'd like.

Easy execution. eCommerce platform that focuses on growth for store owners

Reviewed 2015-06-15
Review Source: GetApp

I migrated my store from another platform to Shopify. As a non-technical store owner, I was able to achieve more in 7 days than I was able to on 3 months on a different platform. The hosted aspect of Shopify handles a large portion of the technical pains that arise when running a transactional website. As a result, I was able to put more time into improving the products, marketing and growing the business. Not to mention, I almost entirely eliminated the need for a full time developer to make sure the back end is properly working, everyday. The main objective with eCommerce is to grow and get to profitability fast, not fiddle around with hosting and ensuring that apps are not clashing.The low technical skill requirement, the availability of 3rd party apps to enhance the store, the general excitement and size of the community, the availability of vetted experts through their expert directory are all clear advantages. The cherry on top is the attention to design and user experience that is offered through the Shopify dashboard and with the themes in the theme store. Lastly, and most importantly, the customer support is amazing. I once emailed them at 1am on a Sunday morning and got a response in 15 min. What? Overall, it's just an easy, pleasant experience - but still, don't underestimate the amount of work it takes to put up a profitable shop.

Full-featured and powerful e-commerce platform. You only need to choose template from a large number of proposed and customize it for your style. No design skills needed. It is very easy to add new sales channels, manage a large number of your products, set up to place orders with one click, easily follow your progress and track popular products among your potential buyers. Shopify is a convenient platform for selling any product. With the help of Shopify, I was able to sell faster my company products, track what my customers liked more and work on what really makes a profit. For me, it was easy to set up this platform for e-commerce. All functions suit me completely and meet all my parameters. If you purchase this software, you will get a lot of benefits, and a great platform for e-commerce. The only thing that I would advise, is to spend more time designing the template at the initial stage, to think over all the nuances in advance. At the first time in Shopify you will feel all the simplicity and powerful of this service, it cannot be easier.

It is quick to get started developing and has great basic documentation and support for shopkeepers. The platform (from the perspective of a developer, not a shopkeeper) is fantastic. It takes a bit to learn, but it was clearly built thoughtfully with the aim of making it a seamless process for a store owner to get online and serve their customers quickly. Compared to building a shop with Shopify vs Wordpress vs from scratch, Shopify is good at doing what it set out to do.

It's constantly saving us money. With Shopify POS we don't have to spend anything extra for the POS support that connects into our existing shopping cart.VALUE. Shopify allowed us to have a free developer account to test and work through our hesitations before paying a penny for the cart. The POS system comes with the cart for free, it works flawlessly on any apple device, I haven't tried the android offering, but I'm sure it's great as well. The account comes with multiple logins for managing employees with specified permissions for keeping eyes and fingers out of places they shouldn't be. And to top it all off it has a fantastic API connection that allows us to connect it to our Fishbowl Inventory Management system, which brings in the orders from both cart and POS and sorts the inventory out, handles the shipping with shipstation, posts back tracking and fulfills the orders in shopify and all the while capturing all the financial data in QB. I could seriously fire multiple employees for all the time and work this automation is doing for me.

I love Shopify's ability to let me make a dedicated eCommerce product page, use powerful SEO functions to make it discoverable by consumers online, make the page optimized for paid traffic if I want it to be, and then integrate a direct link with that page right from a button in Pinterest, which makes the page even more valuable in terms of getting products into the hands of my prospects!This is hands down the best online website builder that lets you make an eCommerce (online shopping) website out of the box. The integration features it has are impressive, because you can do anything from integrating buttons into Pinterest posts, to selling T-Shirts that are printed automatically by someone else at a factory and then automatically shipped to people,... it's super flexible and powerful.

I have been in the eCommerce business for over 15 years. I worked with different platforms along the way, from custom built apps, to Wordpress and Amazon Webstore. I have tested, Magento, Volusion and countless others. Nothing comes close to Shopify. Shopify combines simple to use interface, which allows even non-techies to open a store. Yet under the hood, it is a powerful software providing a lot of room for customization (as long as you have the necessary knowledge, or hire it). One of its strongest features is the API, which allows it to connect to external applications. Combining its connectivity with its popularity, provide you with a wealth of external apps that can be used for almost anything you can think of: accounting, logistics, fulfillment, and more. If you can't find the app you require, you can hire someone to create it for you. Whether you are new to eCommerce or have many years of experience, do yourself a favor and give it a try.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.

Shopify is easy to use and easy to navigate. I really like the homepage with a dashboard snapshot of you business at that moment with a live view into your website visits, total day visits, sales, etc. I've started using it as a CRM instead of our other software. When you look up a customer it gives you a nice snapshot of their information, orders, history etc. Shopify also offers pretty decent analytics on your business performance and spending reports. You have access to even more reports if you upgrade.
