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

Shopify is the best platform to open shop online and get started quick! It's such a user friendly platform that even a beginner without programming or coding experience can get started!

Cons

There are some minor things with Shopify that creates a bit of a template like feel to it. Still there are better templates that you can find to get a little more control over the look and feel of your e commerce store!

Very easy to get started with advanced features for those who need it

Ease-of-use

For the price of the software, it is hard to complain about anything. It is super easy to set up and manage, tons of usability and plugins for advanced features, great customer service.

Pros

Shopify is very easy to get started with. It practically holds your hand with simple shops and the plugins make for a robust software that almost anyone can make use of. I use it primarily for selling eLearning courses. Shopify has plugins available for most LMS software. Simply connect the LMS to Shopify with a plugin, input the course identifier, with my LMS it is a string of numbers and letters that is unique to each course, then set the price and start selling. When you sell a course through Shopify, the purchaser automatically gets login information for the LMS and is automatically assigned the course they purchased. Shopify has a couple of options for setting up a shop. The first option, which is the easiest, is to create a storefront within Shopify that is like a website, just for your store. It is very easy to pick a theme and then just type in the information. The storefront through Shopify looks very professional and is worth it if you just need a simple storefront. The second option is the buy button, which I use for my companies website. This way, if you already have a website, you can just use Shopify to generate a code that will give you a button to place on your website. There are other options I rarely use such as generating a code for email which is similar to the buy button but I am sure it would be very useful for those wishing to email out their products. There are so many plugins to sell different ways that there would be too much to post in this review. The customer service is top-notch. They respond quickly and when I needed something, they worked with me until it was resolved. The last customer service need I had took a few tries to get everything going but they kept at it until it was fixed.

Cons

The only con I have is for a lot of the advanced usage, you will need plugins for anything beyond selling simple items, like I said before, this is a pro but it can be a con at the same time. Some of the plugins are simple and free but a lot have an extra cost to either purchase the plugin or a monthly fee to use the plugin. The creators of the plugins do need the pay, that is understandable, but most are out of small businesses', like my company's, budget.

Ease of functionality as well
Good amount of promotions

Cons

Limits with packages for listing of products which makes it expensive for beginners
Not sufficient amount of specifications added for first time users only if you spend more then you get all specifications so found it to be super expensive as compared to other providers

Pros

Integrates with instagram, facebook and other social media platforms. It also integrates with mail-chimp and linktree. I like it that you can duplicate products instead of creating new products each time you want to add to your store. Emails that arrive in your inbox after you launch are helpful and useful.

Cons

Very labor intensive initially to set up the storefront. Creating themes and the look of your store is not just a few clicks. There are tweaks and changes that need to be made for a pleasing aesthetic for both mobile and desktop shoppers.

Shopify is awesome for any online business. It’s a one stop shop for starting up a business because it already takes care of a lot of the back end. It also connects to SEO and integrates with websites with ease.

The only con with this is ofcourse the price. The software itself is wonderful, but can get quite expensive especially for a startup company.

Overall, a very good product and can definitely help a lot of business owners to grow.

Pros

I have used Shopify for over a year now. It offers many options to business owners at a reasonable price. It definitely has quite a bit to learn especially for people with limited web design experience but the website itself provides all the resources and makes it easy to learn. There are lots of helpful tips along the way and the customer service is pretty attentive and knowledgeable in all that Shopify has to offer. There are a lot of options in order to customize your website to fit your business needs. The website loads fast and makes it easy for customers to find you. Shopify also gives you access to reports to always check up on how well your website is doing, it is crucial information to learn about where you need to improve on.

Cons

For the most part Shopify has been a great resource, the only downside I would say is the continued membership price and the customer service wait time can be a bit slow at times.

We (my sister and I) are only a small boutique company with a dozen products. Having a background as a web developer (and a number of my own HTML & WordPress sites) it was my job to get the website sorted. We figured out that Shopify would only cost slightly more than a hosted e-commerce WordPress site PLUS with self-hosting, we'd still have to do all the backend stuff ourselves - so it was that trade-off of money for less stress. Security and ease of use were my biggest concerns and Shopify has taken care of that for me. The only other item we've purchased is a great theme to suit our range of products. We've not had to buy any additional apps/extensions as I've found some great free ones. Yes, there is a small fee involved with each transaction but this is comparable to other systems. No system is perfect so it's important to understand your market and your product and do your research on the various systems out there. But I'm a very happy Shopify fan! I wish you luck in your e-commerce journey.

Pros

Free 14 day trial lets you give it a go without committing; easier than woo or wordpress to setup and get started selling; great range of templates/themes and addon apps/extensions (free and paid); easy stock management; it's secure ; easy to design/customise your site - either as a developer using the code or just using the built in editor options.

Cons

I had to edit the code to insert my own meta keywords. But I may be old school when it comes to inserting keywords as I've also read that search engines don't necessarily worry about keywords anymore but focus on the content on the page.

Shopify is infinitely flexible - it can be super minimal for the just-getting-started, or you can bolt on enough apps and features for a business. Sky is the limit.

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.

The website is great and I still use it and I totally love the easiness to setup a website and sell and process payments. But I really wish the shipping prices for international customers were included in the basic without having to upgrade.

Pros

I love that I was able to easily add my domain to my shopify store. They have instructions and if you have any questions customer service is great and fast to answer. You can easily edit your website and add your merchandise. The shopify account lets you add your social media like twitter to check how much your audience is engaging with your posts. You can create marketing campaigns. You can check how much traffic your website is getting and constantly receive on the from tips to improve. You can add apps to your store if you want to star a dropshipping business.

Cons

We were using shopify the basic one, and added a app to start a dropshipping business. Which we thought the shipping was the prices that the app said. But apparently to use those prices for my customers, I need to upgrade the shopify account or add an extra feature and pay more from the monthly payment.

What I love about Shopify is the ease of set up, both on the back end and front end. And what I feel makes this possible is Shopify's integration of so many independently produced apps. I don't know if Shopify is open-source but it feels like it is open to total customization.

Cons

The reporting exports could be a little more robust. I'd like the ability to manipulate the data natively in Shopify's platform as opposed to installing an app that will allow me to export the data to a spreadsheet. That's a testiment, however, to Shopify's customization potention via apps.

Our account was terminated because we described one of our organic oils as "serum". They froze our money and it was a nightmare to straighten out. We left for Big Commerce which is better in every way.

The best thing that Shopify offers is the pace at which one can setup an online checkout portal. Shopify’s inbuilt checkout tool allows you to configure a payment gateway within hours. This is a huge value-add for small businesses that do not wish to invest on building their own secure payments gateways.

Cons

Given the simplicity and small range of features that Shopify offers, one would expect the tool to be considerable cheaper than it is. On the whole, Shopify does not fare very well in terms of value for money.

Shopify makes it easy to reach the guests on our museum website, and offers a fairly seamless visual transfer from our website to theirs. The book-keeper likes that she can easily track store purchases and museum membership purchases. The marketing person likes the apps that are available for modifying the site.

Pros

Shopify is really easy and intuitive to use once you have it all set up. The ability to print the shipping label and charge the customer at the same time is wonderful and worth the time it saves me on USPS and UPS websites.

Cons

It was a pain to set up. I am relatively tech-savvy, but don't have lots of time to sit and focus on one thing, which this absolutely requires. There is also a fair amount of technical jargon, so be prepared to look a lot of stuff up, or have a 22 year-old handy.

So so is my experience and I could take it or leave it really

Pros

I do like this program it does quiet a bit for you and is pretty easy to use. Create a store and download apps that will work to put your brand out into the world in many forms.

Cons

I really dislike the “free” most programs offer...free and you can’t do a damn thing with the tools available!! So, you get to to the point where your on the edge of possibly making a sale and BOOM...not so much...can’t go any further and then you find that only those with a subscription can do this or that or most everything that would generate a sale.

Pros

Most searched feature in e-commerce platforms is convenience in payment and I found it in Shopify. The key of success in business was always customer satisfaction and most customers are looking for easy payment methods. Because customers could be from different countries and one payment option can’t be suitable for everyone. Therefore Shopify provides different kind of payment options and as a result you don’t lose your potential customers.

Cons

To create your store is easy for the first time in Shopify. But when it comes to customizing your store you need some programming knowledge. If you don’t have any friend who used Shopify you will have to pay and find someone to do it for you. For newbies it can be expensive and time consuming.
