Shopify Software


 

Shopify is a Web-based e-commerce platform that offers a mobile POS (mPOS) system. The mPOS enables users to manage their business and complete transactions in-store as well as at markets, pop-ups, and trade shows. The e-commerce platform enables retailers to sell online and reach their customers through mobile and social media channels.

Shopify’s mPOS features inventory management capabilities that can sync with e-commerce store so users can see their actual inventory for both assets. It also features store management capabilities, such as reporting and analytics, staff management, order histories, and customer management.

The e-commerce software facilitates setting up an online shop through Shopify’s website builder and blogging platform. Payment is managed through its shopping cart feature, which is backed by 70 payment gateways.

Shopify provides search engine optimization (SEO), email marketing, social media integration and a discount code as a part of its marketing module. The stock count can be tracked in real-time and products can be de-listed when inventory runs out.

Shopify's analytics module can be integrated with Google Analytics to track sales, visits, and referrals.

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.

Good product overall with solid e commerce features and customer service. Do your due diligence on your business type and ask several people if they support your SIC code so that you avoid being dropped as a merchant.

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.

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.

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.

Cons

I would recommend Shopify to anyone who is starting up a small online retail space. Best for just starting out, will want to re-evaluate once operations expand.

Pros

Shopify is extremely easy to use and navigate. Easy data pulls to help with planning. Templates for webpages are simplistic and clean.

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.

Shopify Perks & Shortcomings

Ease-of-use

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

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.

It is an easy route for beginner shop owners but also allows the room for growth and scalability as a company grows and develops.

Pros

I love the customer support and the ease of integration of so many payments and features. My favorite was being able to set up tax payment and international shipping with the click of a button!

Cons

I think it is the lack of customization in terms of themes. Some other ecommerce sites are "prettier" if that's possible. I wish they gave more options that way without having to pay a third party for a theme.

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.

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

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.

Cons

The web design section is complicated and takes a fair bit of adjusting. This can be costly if outsourced. Once you have the hang of it though a nice looking website is achievable with great built in apps to makes sales easier.

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.

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.

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

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

I like the layouts, apps, and simplicity of putting a website together. The support is very helpful.

Cons

It took me quite a while to figure out where everything was and how to edit. You would assume that everything would be in the same place to edit website, but for some things it's placed in a not so obvious place.

Gave me a professional looking website without costing tens of thousands of dollars. Also, the platform is very easy to use and integrate with existing systems.

Pros

Easy to use. Constantly adding new features. Ability to add third party apps, which gives you advanced website features for a few bucks a month.

Cons

There are certain, minor features that Shopify doesn't have. Specifically, Shopify doesn't have the ability to store customer's credit card numbers.
