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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Mac OS , Linux , HP-UX , AIX , Solaris , Unix , IBM OS/400 , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 2000 , Windows 8

    I built our online retail store, and information platform solely using shopify, our sales have jumped, our website looks more polished than ever, and im seeing a real response.

    Pros

    Shopify is so easy to use, and so intuitive. I built our entire website using Shopify, incredible forums, free guides, and the most responsive customer service I have ever dealt with.

    Cons

    Being coded in liquid blue, there are some strange nuances to getting a page to load smoothly, it is however very easy to get the hang of what works for you.

    Pros

    - Takes care of speed & security by itself. You have more time to work on better optimisations.
    - Loads of features - ecommerce templates, payment flow support, interface-wise, etc.
    - Great customer support - huge community support, faqs, etc.
    - Great customisations possible in terms of design

    - Pricing. Lot of very small businesses may find it a bit pricy for creating their first website.
    - Onboarding and setup is a bit tricky. You may need a developer or some understanding of how web hosting works.

    Pros

    Inexpensive solution that is fairly easy to add new products and customers. Good for our small business.

    Cons

    Clunky to review / update pricing - you have to click through several links to get to the pricing per item. Also clunky to navigate through the product catalog - you have to advance 1 page at a time rather than being able to skip to specific page numbers. Re-ordering products on a specific page is very cumbersome as well.

    I would have loved to keep using Shopify to sell products online, but it just ate into my profits too much.

    Pros

    Even someone who doesn't have a lot of web design experience can use Shopify. They offer a very clearly laid out set up and it's pretty easy to get help when you need it. If you're looking to set up an online shop you can use Shopify, even if you're not very tech savvy.

    Cons

    I ended up closing my Shopify store and using another vendor because the monthly fees were just too much money.

    It’s the best platform for the beginners who want to embed their feet in E-Commerce. Things are easily available for everyone and payments are not that difficult. They provide online stores designs and themes to its customers.

    Cons

    People may find it costly and hard to learn. The person who starts his e-commerce platform is worried about the future either his business will flourish or not. Owners or people who use this platform have to spend lot of time to make a better place in it.

    My experience with Shopify has been excellent. It honestly improved my life so much. They have helped me build an online business that I can run anywhere in the world.

    Pros

    Where do I even begin? First of all, I got addicted to Shopify the first hour of playing with it. it's an extraordinary software that is pretty easy to learn that let's you make beautiful high-converting online stores. Also nothing beats hearing that cashing sound wherever I am. Oh and by the way. Shopify has the world's best support. In my world, that's a fact.

    Cons

    I've been using Shopify for 2 years and right now I'm sitting here and been thinking for 10 minutes to give some constructive feedback bht I can't come up with something. I'm not a developer. I absolutely adore this company.

    The only thing I didn’t like about it was the fees because you then need to mark up your items even higher

    I work with several clients that use Shopify and have done serval setups.

    Pros

    The system has a very "dummy proof" integration into existing gateways. youndonnot need to be a tech expert to get started.

    Cons

    With most free versions, you are limited in features/customization ability. However, monthly plans are reasonable.

    This app is really useful for beginners who don't want to go through the hassle of coding their own website. Makes a very presentable layout and very appeal to the average consumer. They also have plenty of plugins for you to enhance your experience.

    Cons

    The cost to keep the store running can get expensive depending on how many plugins you signed up for. Also, the theme selection for the layout of the website is a bit limited as well.

    Pros

    Before Shopify I used several other platforms to sell products online. Yes I was earning but all of them had some insufficiencies. But after switcing to Shopify everything completely changed for me. Shopify is combination of all other platforms and it makes Shopify unique among other platforms. After Shopify my sales doubled and it provided a comprehensive statistics. After a short analyze I managed to understand in which area my store is suffering or which products are bestsellers. My most liked features are inventory and order management functions.

    Cons

    Overall I am satisfied with Shopify. But for new starters fees may be a little high. If you have less products to sell then you will face some costs before revenue.

    Excellent. Started a business back in college and used Shopify, made quite a bit of beer money which was great.

    Pros

    Beginners can make easy use of this software like I did around 5 or so years ago. Advanced users can toy around with CSS if they want. It's a great platform that has a lot of easy to use and useful features. Great if you want to start simple but eventually learn more and more as you progress and learn advanced techniques. Can't really do that with Wix, and I thought Squarespace would be the same way based on what I've heard about it. Want to open up a store online right away for a low cost and come out with something that looks great with minimal effort? Shopify is for you.

    Cons

    I really don't have anything bad to say. More customization if I want to get nit picky, but I'd just go to Wordpress and build something from scratch there if I needed to, it will just take me longer so Shopify is the way to go as long as it has everything you need, and for a lot of people it does.

    I've set up plenty of profitable e commerce sites that have well paid for the subscription and costs of integration apps.

    Pros

    Very easy to set up, and they have beautiful themes. Lots of integrations for e-commerce.

    Cons

    It's quite expensive, and they don't offer multi-site hosting plans. Would be nice if they had a package for hosting multiple sites, instead of charging a pro plan for each individual site.
