Pros: I love Shopify! With my small business it has been making it easy for me to track my inventory and keep close contact with my customers. The functions and applications makes it so easy- what is even easier is the mobile app. Super convenient and I can take my business anywhere! I rarely need to ask for their support, but when I had a question for something I thought wasn't possible their customer service is on point! Always willing to go the extra mile to further leave a great impression. Superb job Shopify!

Overall: I owe Shopify my whole business! They helped my small business grow!

Pros: The absolute best thing about Shopify is the ability to customize to your specific needs no matter how big or small your ecommerce site it. This can be aesthetically or technical. It is incredibly helpful to have so many features available to use, and the only guides and tutorials (and user forums) make it easy enough for even a small shop to get up and running quickly. I would recommend Shopify to any one looking for a website to sell anything online.

Cons: At times customer support can be lacking, but the lack of customer support is made up for with the user forums and online guides and help.

Pros: I am a complete novice in web design, so I love it. The proliferation of plugins to support every new feature I want is great. Plus it's a great value

Cons: When we brought on someone in CS, they hated Shopify for a while. It's a bit of a learning curve to figure out how to code effectively within such a unique environment

Pros: Some Saas solutions that offer services similar to those of Shopify are also easy to use, but many of them are quite bad in terms of functionalities, design possibilities and available templates. In Shopify we have a marketplace with a variety of templates, both free and paid, all with a very careful design and highly customizable. All this you will be able to do without writing a line of code, so you should not worry about this issue.

If your project is not too complex you will be able to have your online store set up and running in a few hours, something that is much more complex in other platforms.

Cons: In case you need to have your store in several languages, the options offered by shopify are complex and some of them are not very operative. It would be nice if they worked on some functionality to make this much easier.

Overall: It has a fast learning curve. You can have an online store running in a few hours with a professional design. You do not need hosting as it is included. Good customer service constant integration of new features and improvements.

Pros: 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.

Cons: More features to the below-enterprise plan are needed. Checkout code and Cart code easy accesses and customization. Shopify Platform-Integrated Emails Panel is an essential change, must be added. It should also be able to synchronize with email marketing software such as Klaviyo, Conversio and others such as Mailchimp. -Email marketing is on a HUGE rise according to Salesforce 2017 report -Follow the trend ;) The only feature between the second and third plans is abandoned carts and it's nowhere as good as what email marketing apps provide, and, having in mind the bigger investment- I bet most of the stores on this plan don't use the Shopify-integrated one.

Pros: I think Shopify is the best option to run your own online store. In today¿s world when almost everything is done over the internet, having your store virtually is also on the rise. The best thing about Shopify, in my opinion, is the option to use this software as a Point of Sale (POS) and let the customers know from where to buy the products online. Whether being on Facebook, Tumblr or Pinterest. Shopify is completely secure for processing cards. The customer support is brilliant and the website is extremely user friendly.

Cons: The only problem of using Shopify is the cost involved. In my opinion, the pricing is a bit high but if someone works hard on this platform, these costs will surely recover in no time. Also, there is a problem of closing your account/store. When we shut down our store, the only information we can get about our product will be in the form of a report, hence losing everything else. Along with this, even though the website is extremely user friendly, the initial set up takes a lot of time and dedication.

Pros: Shopify has so many options for you to create the best website possible. Most things you can think of, there is already an app available to help you fulfill all of your ideas for creating the best possible online store.

Cons: Shopify doesn't really directly integrate with most POS systems, but this is really more the fault of the POS rather than Shopify. It's pricey, but it's worth the money.

Pros: It's easy to use, even for the biggest technophobe, and the customer service is super helpful when things don't seem straightforward. The SEO optimization for any Shopify store is the best I've seen for any e-commerce platform and your store is easy to find for customers. The store themes are also beautiful and professional, which creates the best first impression for my products. It has secure payments, easy checkout, and everything is customizable. It's like everything is taken care of for you, so you can focus on enjoying your business!

Cons: The only thing I don't like about Shopify is calling for support outside of regular business hours - the waits are long, and the tech gurus don't seem to be as familiar with the software, or as able to get to the heart of your question, as those you get during the day

Overall: Increased exposure for my online business selling sustainable yogawear and yoga tools. Expansion of my inventory and greater opportunities to develop my business.

Pros: Shopify makes setting up an online store as easy as it can possibly get, while still allowing for more advanced users to customize as much as they want. Also, they offer some of the best customer care I've ever experienced at no additional charge - highly recommend!

Cons: The only con I've identified with Shopify is the delivery system for discount codes, however, I believe a fix for this has recently rolled out, but haven't had a chance to work with it yet.

Pros: This software integrates very well with ship station, and allows us a snapshot of sales of many different sales tools. The ability to add a great deal of Aps allows for a unique experience for our sales team, and our customers. It's also fairly easy to use

Cons: If there is an issue, it can be a long time for customer service to get back to you. The system at times goes through updates, which can really mess up how the entire site works.

Overall: Helps with sales and POS

Pros: It's easy to use - all we needed was an iPad, the app, and our Shopify hardware for swiping the credit cards. It tracks all the sales in one spot, which makes things easy when it comes to returns, month-end reports, etc.

Cons: The credit card swiper usually takes two times of inserting the card to process the payment. Then once the transaction runs, it doesn't ask for options of how the customer would like the receipt, it simply prints. I'm guessing this is a setting we could change, but it's something I noticed.

Overall: The biggest benefit to Shopify is that it makes it easy to open a small business. There's no huge implementation or set up required. It's very user-friendly and intuitive. :)

Pros: - A Shopify website can look clean & beautiful right out of the gate. - There are thousands of add ons that make Shopify able to fit almost any ecommerce situation - You can work with a new theme, while you're existing theme stays in place, instead of working with a duplicate or "staging" environment - Customer support is amazing. Gurus are responsive and savvy, and can be accessed by chat, phone or email (unlike other companies that rely primarily on community support forums)

Cons: - It's not easy to set up, surprisingly. There are so many features and add ons that it makes the process incredibly complicated. And, things aren't where I'd expect them to be (settings, preferences, etc) - Themes and add ons can make the price of Shopify deceptively expensive. Once a website is generating profit this might be a good thing, but considering how long it can take to get a site fully functional, it can be quite a large start up cost. - You need to feel comfortable editing code, or hiring a designer to make changes to the design - If you want to switch to a new (or more modern theme) you'll need to start all of your design again. Not just design, but product layouts, page layouts. Everything starts over from scratch again. - Support times are often very long

Pros: It was really easy to set up. We purchased a template, which our team customized to suit our needs, and then we are able to easily make changes as needed without issues. Customer support is usually very helpful and responsive to messages, and the support community is great for getting questions answered. Overall we are very happy.

Cons: There was an issue with setting up our Facebook shop. Customer support seemed a little dismissive whenever I first brought up the issue that the shop was not published, as they said it takes up to a week for approval. That's too long to wait, in my opinion, for a shop to be live, especially when we're already paying for it. It turns out that there was a bug preventing our shop from being published, which was easily fixed, but it would've been nice if they had looked into it right away instead of dismissing the problem.

Pros: Good costumer service Different options for monthly subscription helps keep costs low Integration with Authorize.net

Cons: Higher pricing for working with your own processor vs. shopify payments Strict rules for processing businesses i.e. they do will not allow shopify payments to work with vape shops, which will lead to services being dropped if you do not switch to a higher priced outside processor.

Pros: - An easy way to earn extra money with little investment - Having a virtual store is important as consumers are shifting towards e-commerce - You can use this software as a Point of Sale (POS) and let the customers know from where to buy the products online (Facebook, Pinterest or Tumblr) - This software is also secure so online payments can be made easily without worrying - Just add your products on your Shopify virtual store and the software then manages your store itself - Best for small scale and home based companies/businesses (highly recommended) - Add your products, give discounts, get an analysis for your product sales and compare your success accordingly - As everything is online, you don't have to give your store a lot of attention as Shopify still keeps on running without any intervention

Cons: - This application is not for large companies as they can manage their own website better - Shopify isn't easy to operate and setting up costs a lot of time - Difficult to get used to but easy as soon as you start using Shopify regularly - Not many themes to choose from when signing up for free so store may look dull and quite common among other free users

Pros: 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.

Cons: This may be a good platform to start your online experience with, despite the high fees.However, I've run into an unexpected hurdle that I can not seem to resolve. I have had a chargeback (stolen credit card) from an order. It was settled, I had to pay out of my pocket. After I covered the chargeback willingly to keep my store operating, they froze my orders and would not let my money out of my account. They have started a fraud investigation on me, and requested my re-seller agreements and shipping and tracking information for my latest orders, which I produced promptly. This is not the frustrating part. I understand the importance of security and fraud prevention and would assist in any way I can to resolve the issue. It has now been two weeks since I submitted all the required information for review, and I have not heard anything back. No, we've received it and it's in review no we need more information. NOTHING. I have been calling back and they would not let me talk to the person who requested the information from me, because he is either out of the office, or we are unable to transfer your call directly to him. I have sent many emails directly to the investigator, starting off with nice and progressively more frustrated, but still professional and non-offensive.

Pros: It's very easy to list products on Shopify and it has great data capture options making in store and online sales so much easier. The overview and insights are extremely well set out making stock forecasts less of a strain.

Overall: It was very useful for a small retailer as it gave you all the necessary tools to keep everything in check.

Pros: As you'd expect, Shopify helps you create an e-commerce site with ease. Using it out of the box, with a little knowledge on web design/development, you can begin accepting orders and using the various plugins to make your site work without problems.

Overall: Shopify really is a great option when considering how to build your next e-commerce site.

If you want to get creative you have to know what you're doing. But ultimately, the templates that are available make this Shopify great for starting an e-commerce site.

So far Shopify the best eCommerce platform I've ever used.

Pros: The support team. They're simply great and realiable. Every time we contact them, they always have a solution for us. Also, they are consistently improving the admin page. Which makes it more user friendly.

Cons: Coming from another eCommerce platform, i would say Shopify makes you spend more money. You would need to purchase apps, in order to have some features that you need.

Pros: The options for frontend designs are endless and it gives you the ability to create a clean look for your brand. On the backend, it's intuitive and easy to use. You can easily make changes to your website and know exactly how it will look beforehand.

Cons: It would be nice if there were more easy of access in viewing and editing products in bulk. It can sometimes be tedious when a lot of products are listed and you have to scroll through each page to get to a certain one.

Pros: It's integration with Google Merchant Center, taking the extremely arduous task of building a product data feed and completely automating it, saving me hours of work a month

Cons: Its interface is a little unintuitive for more high-level work as you can tell it was built with simplicity in mind and so the more complex features are somewhat hidden or only available through third-party apps

Overall: As already mentioned, the time saved by the Merchant Center integration is superb as well as it removing the most tedious aspect of setting up a google shopping account.

Pros: Easy of use and seamless integration. Shopify is really easy to use and easy to develop with. It has many payment options and the integration is seamlessly. There are multiple and beautiful templates. Also there are many applications that extends the basics functionality of Shopify. As a developer i like Shopify because we can deliver a project in the shortest time possible. As a user, i like the intuitiveness of the platform and the options it provides. The new 'Sections' features have been a major success, allowing the themes to be super dynamic

Cons: The coupons functionality is very tight and inflexible. You can't combine multiple coupons at a time. Also the navigation functionality needs some enhancements like drag n' drop functionality to create submenus. Another thing that needs improvement is the filtering collection functions.

Overall: As a developer I managed to deliver projects in less time. As a user I increase the sales of various customers.

Pros: The user interface is easy to use, readily customizable, and robust. You get a website, website builder, hosting and e-commerce all in one. You can use it right out of the box or customize your site to whatever you like. There is a huge base of developers that can add custom add-ons and the support isn't half bad.

Cons: Cost is the biggest issue. With the monthly cost to run a store plus additional costs for some add-ons as well as transaction fees the service isn't the most cost effective, but you get what you pay for.

Overall: Easy to use, Not a time suck, Realizable results using the web page builder, highly customizable, doesn't require a programmer. Huge support base etc. etc. Great product.

Comments: I wish they would go back to the previous version. The update that was made several months back decreased the ease of use. Overall it is still the best for integrating our website and POS.

Pros: It is very simple to use Shopify to integrate our website and products in our various locations. I really like how simple it is to add a new product or remove a product. Also, I like how simple it is to change product descriptions and add pictures. Discounts are also easy to add at checkout. Also, I do find it simple to see sales based on location with Shopify. This is a feature that I use on a regular basis.

Cons: Ever since it was updated, it is much harder to use and more confusing for my staff to pull register reports. I also have found that the plug-ins are not as straight forward as they should be. We use AppCard and shippo plug-ins, but I am not thrilled with either. I wish it was easier to use the full functionality of Shopify on the app, instead of needing to login on the web.

Pros: First of all, this is a GREAT value for your money. Most importantly, they are very clear and straightforward about their fees, which you should appreciate, of course. It is extremely easy to use and the platform is aesthetically pleasing with a wide variety of professional looking pre designed themes.

Cons: though not needed for my business, it does not support multi-language stores.
just be mindful of integrating multiable apps, as it can get costly. Sign up for the shopify payments to bypass the transaction fee.

Cons: Hard to add features outside the box. Needed to rely heavily on plugins to customize our checkout process and any add-on offers we had.

Pros: Shopify is built on their liquid proprietary framework. It's extremely powerful and allows for the ultimate customization while remaining efficient and replicable. The theme community is great and it has some of the best looking templates on the market.

Cons: The ability to migrate large numbers of products from other platforms proved difficult at times. There are 3P apps that leant a hand but it still isn't seamless.

Overall: It's feature-rich, robust, secure, and built on liquid which is completely customizable and intuitive to learn. It has helped grow many businesses that I've supported and provided an interface that was easy for my clients to learn.

Pros: Shopify has everything you need. It automatically sends emails, has a shopping cart, tracks inventory, everything you need. It is super easy to send a shipment, or issue a refund. Obviously, it takes some time uploading your products, pictures, and designing the website (although it is very easy and straight forward), but the store is super easy to manage. Their analytics are top knotch, much better than Google Analytics.

Overall: A whole business around this one software. Can't really get any better than that.

Pros: This is a very easy to use software that allows you to quickly have a store for people to purchase your products. There are a lot of app options which you can use to spruce up your ecommerce site.

Cons: I feel like a lot of basic functionality should be included by shopify in the platform, but instead they push you to purchase applications from their app store to have a lot of these basic functionalities. Coupons is a good example, you could hardly do anything with their built in coupons, and so we had to download an app and pay monthly for more coupon functionality.

Overall: It really helped streamline our ecommerce site, and drive sales. It increased speeds and made user interactions much easier, and also really boosted our mobile user engagement.

Cons: i don't like the fact that the free trial is just to build your store, to be able to open your store to the public you have to pay.. In my case I used the free trial and then paid for a one month plan but didn't do any sale, and the plans are not cheap so I lost all that money.

Pros: Shopify 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. If you have a physical store the POS is free! Customer service people is always happy and gentle.

Cons: Lack of customization for the product structure at the development level. You end up doing "tricks" with tags and tables inside the content of the product to do some cutomizations at template level. Customer service is a fallacy, yes, they have a chat and they talk with you but 3/3 times I've used it they said my problem was going to be resolved later, that they would open a ticket for that and they never happened (I had to open again a chat in order for them to remind my case). Layout of the admin sections is not clear enough, many links and sections are hidden in undescriptive links.

Overall: Blazing fast developments, more customers, more earnings

Pros: Well, so many things. Built on solid open standards Ruby-on-Rails web 2.0 web framework. This is the 'Apple' of e-commerce platforms regarding quality. Huge ecosystem of integrations in the Shopify App store and growing almost every day. Great selection of slick beautiful templates from graphic artists. Most beautiful templates I've ever seen in an ecommerce platform. Very easy to set-up and use.

Cons: I wish it had *direct* integration with other platforms such as Google Apps, HubSpot, Freshbooks, and Teamwork Projects for order fulfillment. These are available through numerous third-party add-ons, but direct integration would be better. Still, it has more indirect integrations than any other ecommerce platform.

Overall: This is the platform chosen for our new website, moving up from Yahoo! websites. Huge improvement. Shopify is state-of-the-art.

The best e-commerce platform for small, budding companies.

Cons: Can be hard to manage a large number of SKUs as the system is simple and user friendly. Uploading product images and copy can be mind numbing when dealing with a large number of different products.

Pros: It's super easy to use and the interface is a breath of fresh air to use. It also has a robust API and people can develop apps for it.

Cons: It doesn't have a ton of features. There are zero out-of-the-box solutions for running a multi-locale/language Shopify site for multiple countries. There is no place to translate content and display it in other languages for example.

Also, be careful with 3rd party Shopify apps. Many of these apps are dependent on servers run by these 3rd parties because Shopify makes calls to these 3rd party servers to do various things. So your site is no longer just dependent on Shopify's infrastructure but now also dependent on this 3rd party's infrastructure. It depends on the app and what the app does but this does appear to be the case with many of them.

Pros: With the Shopify platform you can have your online store up and running in just a few hours. The platform is easy to navigate and there is no coding experience needed to build your online store. There are lots of free templates to help get you started quick. There are also paid templates as well. Customer support is very basic, but is available 24/7.

Cons: My only complaints about Shopify is the inability to easily hide out of stock products and variations. You have to use round about methods to hide out of stock products, and it's impossible to hide out of stock variations.

Fantastic!

Pros: The platform allows me to push out my product to the market, also it allows me to create a professional look for the website in an easy way. A beginner / novice user would find it really easy to use since not much coding knowledge is required to set up one.

Overall: Great platform to sell my product If you do not like the free template they offer, there is a chance that your cost will be bumped up because of a paid template. Also, there is a certain limitation in editing the website in the way you want

Comments: We use Shopify to run our small store of educational and promotional swag. It gives us easy functionality to add new items, edit, change inventory, or delete product. There are some discount code functionalities that we wish could be better used. Also, it would be helpful to have a way to track inventory that is removed for giveaways. Other than that, it works perfect for our little store.

Comments: Ease of use. It does not requires lots of technical knowledge to setup. In order for the site to be functional, it would take around 30 mins to setup. Precise report & inventory tracking with real time tracking on your stock. So if you have lots of inventory, you will not lose track on it. Extremely mobile friendly with different themes & designs to choose from. The site can only be customized in some certain areas. Connection with Facebook Store sometimes malfunction and does not appear on Facebook Store page. There are certain limitation when it comes to make credit card payment available, it actually depends on the country you live in. It enable me to create my own platform for selling my fashion stuff. This is a great way to start your own e-commerce business. If you want to edit the website even further than its template, you need to know some basic html but this can be learnt on the way down the road so no worries.

Comments: 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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: 1. They dont allow for multiple warehouses/locations in their inventory system! 2. They dont allow for cost of goods (COGs) vs. Retail pricing in their system which means it is completely useless for any inventory management or accounting needs 3. Their inventory system doesn't have an "inventory taking" system built in which means it has to be done manually (NOT an option for anyone who has ever had to actually manage an inventory. which i assume is ALL of us) Overall, their shortcomings are ENTIRELY within the inventory department which is such an essential aspect of running a business and book keeping.

Comments: We have used Shopify for almost 2 years now. Simple to use for the beginner but yet versatile enough to take on the pro. Shopify has different pricing levels - Basic Shopify, Shopify, Advanced Shopify. If you are just starting out, I highly recommend Basic Shopify. It will give you everything you need. Plus as you grow you have 2 other pricing levels to choose from.

Pros: Competitive pricing and sleek design for every store need makes shopify perfect choice. It is highly customisable and self hosted.

Cons: Most features fit in expect knowledge need to work around but we need to learn for perfect output. Also it fails to offer some flexiblity in moving to different e-commerce solutions.

Overall: While working at websociety, I got to know that clients need much more than just a website, they are not geek but they want the feel of the website as they feel. The customer requirements are varying for different customers. When we need something that can hold up on a online store, shopify is way too simple yet too robust to fill every need. Yes clients keep asking whether shopify or magento, I just say them both have their own pros. I highly recommend to go through this to be next e-commerce giant, well kidding, but sure your business will succeed, I have experienced. There are many who are competing in the market for the position shopify owns. The sleek design never fails.

Recommendations to other buyers: Setup can be more hassle free.

Comments: Great product and value for smaller shops. Base level reporting could be enhanced as well as inventory management. You need to rely on the Shopify app store to do some seemingly simple tasks, which can make the experience cumbersome at times. I do highly recommend for newer shops but can become a bit of an administrative headache when dealing with multiple POS locations.

Comments: I've had clients tell me that they find Shopify sites relatively simple to administer, and that may be true, but as a developer it's a nightmare. Not only is their interface extremely unintuitive, but their system has lots of random restrictions which can make your life a nightmare.

For a start you need to use their proprietary language, Liquid. Community support is thin on the ground. The Shopify support can be excellent or terrible, depending on who you get through to.

It's simply no fun for a developer :(

Pros: I love the integration with eCommerce channels. we integrate with both square space and woocommerce on Wordpress. Basically, I log into ShipStation and it communicates back to these channels and those apps have automated Notification of the shipment process to the customer including tracking numbers. The iPhone app is awesome too. I have it in a graded in with my watch and can see Sales pop and ready to be delivered/shipped

Cons: There have been a couple of times where the refresh for new shipments popping in is slow. I can't fault their app as I'm not sure how the API Integrations sync up from a timing perspective.

Pros: How easy it was for me to learn and use to include I love how functional the app is on my android phone!

Cons: If there were any cons I hope that shopify can look into more themes to choose from. Other than that it is great!

Overall: Searching for some kind of opportunity for more sales I ran into Shopify! As I was doing my research about them... a few days later I signed up for my very own online store. It was a great decision because it was easy to use, themes available to already start your online website, monthly payment is very affordable, and it guranteed everything I was looking for to bring more traffic to my small business!

Recommendations to other buyers: You won't regret it. If you're not satisfied there is no commitment. You can cancel at anytime.
