Pros: For a small business, Shopify works just fine. Easy to use and implement on your website, and easy to organize products and display them for online customers. Overall, a good product. Their fee structure is transparent--I know exactly how much we pay monthly and what percentage of each transaction.

Cons: I like that it allows you to integrate apps into your website--this is a bonus function, however this can really add up as many apps also cost money and sometimes a percentage of each sale. So in this way, I wish shopify broadened it's offerings so we wouldn't need to integrate apps and pay those extra fees.

Cons: There are limits to how much you can customize visually. At that point you have to develop a fully custom site.

Pros: Its environment is cool for startups which do not want to spend excessively for basic needs such as domain, logo, terms and conditions drafts and much more. The pricing is adequate.

Pros: Ease of use even for those with very little tech know-how . I've let some of my team members work on Shopify projects and they found it easy to use. It offers quality templates for FREE but don't feel cheap. With different integrations for drop shipping, it is easy to add and keep track of products to your store without the need for using up space in your PC to save descriptions and images. Support is quite good and you can have help in the Shopify forums. There's enough time to try it out with its free trial period of 2 weeks. There's no annual lock-in which is good for those who aren't sure yet.

Cons: There's really nothing much one could ask for for the quality features and the price. One should however be mindful of the trial period because if you wish to finalize your subscription after the end of the trial, you may have to start over because. So it's best to contact support and request for an extension if you're not done testing yet.

Pros: I was able to quickly add products and build a site off of a template. The business I am helping with that is using Shopify has done thousands of orders with very few hiccups. It integrates with MailChimp seamlessly. Email eCommerce is so easy with Shopify + MailChimp.

Cons: Some of the reporting tools can be a bit cumbersome . Specifically, it would be nice to download a csv file of people who ordered a specific product so you can email them about updates concerning the product.

Overall: eCommerce site set up. Online point of sale system. Marketing tools.

Pros: For the creation of an online store, you can use shopify, just use one of its pre-built themes and go ahead. Do you want to send emails, shopify has an app for that, abandoned cart? shopify has an app, everything works correctly.

Cons: Depending on the product you sell, it will be the commission, with some client we tried to sell beauty products and WOW the commission went up, and they held our money some days, my client was not happy with this, he claimed that I should have warned him, but that was out of my reach I never knew, in the end everyone was happy, but my client insisted on changing platform.

Pros: What I enjoy most about the software is literally the overall software. How simple it is to upload products, get help; if needed, and more.

Cons: The least thing I like about the software would have to be the Billing Dates, they seem to change without notice. For example, when I started; charges were billed every 12th or 11th. Now I find the company attempting to take our Hosting fees on the 8th.

Pros: Shopify is my first store platform I used. I learn about websites, code buil stores with shopify. I recognize I'm in love with shopify. Now I apply another platforms but if my customer wants to build a store websites in a way with quality and garanted I recommend always shopify.

Cons: I think shoopify can be a websites builder platform. Not only stores and give a plan option to build as example a corporate websites without be a store.

Pros: The thing I like the most is you can be a beginner with web design and have no problem picking up this software and make a great looking website. If you are a professional web designer you can do a lot of customization and make your own layout that works for you. I also love how easy shopify can connect to other websites like Amazon for sales through multiple channels.

Cons: Cost is somewhat high for a small business. There are definitely cheaper options out there but if you want to try shopify out and see how you like it you get a 14-day trial.

Cons: I used to love Shopify, but recently, I have noticed the flow isn't as good. They pushed an update and I'm not super into it. The shop owner needs to do a better job of managing the software itself from an admin perspective, however, I don't like how difficult it is to make returns and give store credit on the app. It doesn't have very good user-error controls in place to make sure you can quickly undo what you did. It's definitely less intuitive and easy to make changes than it should be.

Pros: Shopify can create a very professional and clean ecommerce website within minutes. It supports Apple Pay, as well as the usual payment systems right off the bat. Importing tools can make populating the website very easy. Anyone that is computer literate can create a website within 3 hours and have it up and running. YouTube had a plethora of tutorials to help you on your way. Shopify is predominantly used in the dropshipping industry and there are communities that offer great support and help.

Cons: Shopify is very reasonable. However, all the plugins are monthly based subscriptions. So unlike Wordpress that runs more on a one-time payment for plugins, you have to ensure you increase sales as you increase the amount of functionality to your site.

Comments: Overall Shopify is awesome! I love the Oberlo integration. Makes it easy to start any kind of store.

Pros: I've been using Shopify for quite some time now. I really enjoy how quickly and easily I can launch an entire online store. They help you take care of every aspect of getting setup. Shopify setup simplifies: payment processing, web security with a free SSL, and they'll even help generate policies for your store.

Cons: The lack of a basic drag and drop builder really makes it tough to call Shopify an all-in-one solution. The themes they have are too "cookie-cutter" and third party themes always seem to have crippling issues. Your left with a cost effective platform that starts to cost a lot more if you want it to work right.

Pros: Shopify is great because it helped get online sales going really fast. We didn't have to work about hiring a developer to integrate Stripe, or anything like that.

Cons: The store front user-experience can often times be inconsistent from storefront to storefront. So sometimes users don't know where to look for something. Amazon is so successful in part to the store front key features always being in the same place.

Pros: I have helped a friend look for a system that she can use to sell her items. Shopify came up straight away as it allows custmisation of the store, sell products, organise products and track all orders. This was easy to use and set up as we need a quick solution. Everything can be set up and therefore there are less time working out costs, shipping etc.

Cons: The hidden costs are to look out for are the transaction fees if you use another platform to pay for this service. The customer service are helpful but could be a bit more forthcoming with suggestions to improve your experience.

Pros: It has robust fraud detection. Our last system didn't have much, and that could be frustrating when charge backs rolled around. Shopify will flag fraud orders for us and then we just review those.

Pros: When I first used this, I was literally amazed. I've been working for online retail/SaaS business for a couple of years now but never really utilised Shopify until last year. I think it's really impressive how they've simplified everything that a self-starting business needs to sell online. Themes look clean and data extraction is impressive. If I ever get to start my own online shop, this is definitely what I'll be using, too.

Cons: I think some of the themes and add-ons could be cheaper. Other than that though, not many cons come to mind!

Pros: The sales support help line is excellent and easily accessible. Easy to navigate and set up with large amounts photo uploads. You have the option to do mass uploads which a great time saver. Lots of background layouts to chose from, can change them daily if you wanted to . I liked the shipping charge options based on country or sales price. Can delete info quickly when items sell out.

Cons: Only slight con would be credit card payment fees, they are fair prices. The fees charged are not great but not too bad.

Overall: Can create a website with no experience. This could be used as a storefront if you have no retail location or great for a home based business also.

Pros: Customizing your online store is a lot of fun! You can make it look however you want and you can change it as often as you need. Control over pricing, shipping, products etc is a big bonus. Also, the apps that you can add make the website a lot more interesting to use.

Cons: Adding new products is not the simplest process, especially products with various color options. No real cons, though. Just needs some training.

Pros: Overall, Shopify is user-friendly and allows for a very customizable experience. Using shopify, you don't have to worry about storage or security issues. Also, Shopify offers many applications/plug-ins that help shop owners customize and work through any specific needs they have.

Cons: Compared to other Ecommerce platforms, Shopify doesn't seem as intuitive. I imagine the platform would be harder to learn for a novice versus some other platform options on the market. Shopify does have some major flaws, for instance in their shipping customizations. For the last project I launched for a client on the platform, we had to install an applications (not free) to be able to meet our shipping customization needs. This would not have been an issue on other platforms I've used. Overall, you have to be careful when using Shopify, because installing the add-ons that you need can get expensive.

Pros: Very good customer service, and their staff happen to be pretty dedicated to their job. Shopify provides a way to sell stuff online without having to learn too many technicalities, therefore, it is ideal for beginners to start selling online. Everything is managed, from the servers to the security, to the technical nitty gritty. Your job is to sell.

Cons: Everything is relatively expensive at Shopify, and there are very few plugins or apps that can work without having to buy it, unlike other competing platforms. All the apps/plugins and the theme itself may add up to be a high monthly cost for many folks to bear. If you are making money, it's not too bad. But if you are not making money, then it's quite a heavy financial burden to carry around, and sooner or later, you will end up cancelling it.

Overall: I could setup an online store rather quickly with this software. Even plugins like Oberlo make things easier in this regard. The customer support was also very helpful and always on hand to help out with any issue. Security is not an issue at Shopify either; they made sure their servers were very hard to attack, and I've never heard of anyone's store getting hacked in all the time I was there. At the same time, being so costly, it prohibits many of joining them.

I use Shopify every day for the small business I help manage.

Pros: 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.

Cons: I would like to be able to customize the reports that I download. You don't have a lot of flexibility on this front - this might be a part of the analytics upgrade but that upgrade is significantly more costly and not worth it for us at the moment.

Pros: It provides an easy entry for the junior entrepreneur. The risk is minimized and your exposure to customers is tremendous. They provide a host of systems and templates to help you set up your store to match your particular niche. You get out what you put into it, however, so don't expect to populate a store and have instant success. This can help you expand your brick and mortar business if you have one.

Cons: Competing with others is not easy and there are quite a lot of customers already present and established. This is not for the impatient. There are other storefronts that offer options Shopify does not and that I personally think have better exposure and a more trusted name right now.

Overall: The ability to set up and scale up a business without committing to a lease for years.

Pros: Shopify is a leading online shop builder to grow your business and starting a new online shop, or bringing an offline store online. Amazing range of designs to choose from with user friendly interface to make your life easy and everything is available within few clicks.

Cons: Shopify charges the additional fee to a platform as a percent of sales which is really not fair and it might pinch you. Besides that, you might feel the need of few customized designs basis the product or service in offering. Email hosting is not the part of the service bouquet.

Pros: I like that Shopify POS is integrated with our Shopify website. If we sell something in store, it deducts it from our inventory online, which is very convenient. I don't have to worry about inventory being off.

Cons: The thing I like the least about Shopify POS is that when I issue store credit to a customer, there is no way in the system to know who the store credit was issued to in the future. In other words, you have to keep track of it yourself.

Pros: Shopify makes it so easy to set up a store in a short period of time, and it has a surprising amount of flexibility in the design. There are many apps available to customize the process (checkout, shipping, digital products, affiliates, etc.) as well, and customer service is very helpful in identifying solutions to questions and problems.

Cons: While I initially thought the pricing was fairly reasonable, once we identified all the apps and add-ons we needed the costs went way up. If simple is all you need you should be good, but as soon as you want to start adding capability you may want to reconsider a hosted store! It's really difficult to migrate away too, if you decide to do so.

Pros: Shopify is an extremely effective platform which enhanced the flow of clients in my company in comparison with that platform that I used to work before. In the last company which provided me with the same services was not the possibility to keep everything that I need in one place, I always distracted my attention on permanent switches between different time and it took quite a long time to get used to it. However, working with Shopify completely solved this problem by customizing everything the clever way.

Cons: Integration of the payment systems is the very thing that does not satisfy me. Here you can implement default payment system, nevertheless, I think it can be done easier and a least a bit less complicated way than it was for me.

Shopify is so easy for us to use and build content that is customized for the needs of our customers. It's pretty easy to set up and the customer service has always been excellent when I've had questions.

Cons: I don't like that the same customization features of the home page don't appear for any additional pages. You can really personalize the home page but the rest kind of forces you to stay within set templates. I think that's kind of lame considering how much we pay to keep this software.

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.

Overall: I have used several ecommerce platforms and by far, Shopify was the easiest to use and the most powerful.

Excellent ecommerce solution for small businesses.

Pros: Very easy to use, and intuitive software, with excellent customer service.

Shopify is great platform to edit/develop themes on as well. Their use of modern web practices such as Sass, and their liquid templating make it a joy to work with, and their documentation and tutorials are really well maintained.

Cons: Currently, their Shopify theme 'sections' feature is only compatible with home pages, which is quite limiting and disappointing given the way it's been advertised.

Some other parts of developing can be really limiting, especially in regards to custom fields. This seems to be improving though

Pros: It's really easy to use and it is practical to design a website with little or no knowledge of the code. It's really useful for e-commerce and clients selling their products and ones that do drop shipping.

Cons: I would like to see more free themes and possibility to use some themes for Wordpress and HTML codes found online.

Pros: It is a great value for me, free stock photos that are of higher quality than other free stock photo websites. Their email marketing campaigns have helped explain their additional offerings and the initial good will of freebies has created a loyal customer.

Cons: Honestly I haven't found a negative yet, but from a very high level, the name shopify makes me think of a b2c platform geared towards ecommerce instead of the uses I get out of it. I was close to passing over the google search result because it didn't immediately seem relevant.

Pros: Easy to get set up, many great integrations, tons of themes for you to choose from. Support is responsive and excellent, and they will help you get where you want to be.

Cons: Can be easy to get lost in setting things up if you're a "DIY" type of person, like I am. Many apps have a monthly charge included. If you don't use Shopify Payments, they charge you per transaction (but this is typical).

Pros: 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.

Cons: Most things come included, however any extra customization requires some kind of add-on with monthly charge. Thankfully they have a good amount of add-ons to choose from, but most have fake reviews. Shopify much like other modern shopping carts is unable to store credit cards, out of the box. If your business needs to charge a customer for re-shipping, you have to create an invoice each time using an addon or creating a new order. Customer support is responsive but very general, but the basic Shopify will suit most small business owners. I am however not like most people, and like more customization. You cannot customize things too much other than what templates and add ons offer. Development on Shopify is highly difficult and goes above and beyond html / css however you can make some small changes like adding an image, or a link, a variable, or a tracking script with a look in their help center.

Overall: Helped a friend setup multiple online businesses.

Pros: I like, actually, that I can work better than any, and for all my work I do not need special design skills. I can install an online store for my own brand, and this software will surely help me do this. I have the opportunity to make wonderful topics and fully control them. Gives more chances to add new sales channels in just a few clicks. We quite like to create and work with this program. We can fulfill all our orders in the usual way. We have a chance to track sales and increase our trends. In addition, we have an excellent step in the safe verification and delivery of the product.

Cons: I really have no problems with the operation of this software. Everything works fine and does not contain delays. Still has quick and necessary help for everyone.
