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

Quite easy to learn and use, works well for your first online shop, to sell products with easy payments worldwide.

Cons

Perhaps too be so easy, it doesn't let you customize enough for your business. When your business needs complex operations and options, Shopify is not for you.

Overall, Shopfiy does a great job in offering a solid eCommerce platform to vendors and small businesses alike but other competitors are quickly catching up.

Pros

Shopfiy is great at making complex things simple, like processing online transactions and interfacing with various social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram. It's offers a great solution to small businesses and vendors trying to make online sales.

Cons

The fee structure and the cost associated with Shopfiy is slighty higher than its competitors and with time the competitors are catching up with the advances and benefits Shopfiy has to offer.

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!

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

Functionality

Product Quality

Customer Support

Value for Money

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.

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.

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.

Shopify excel in ecommerce web design tools for designers and everyday users.
The ecosystem of apps, themes, user guides and excellent support make Shopify the best web designer platform for ecommerce websites and also the leader in user friendly tools for the DIY business owner.

Add the bonus of Drop Shipping with Oberlo and we are able to create new businesses for customers with drive to make it happen, with virtually zero upfront fees, people can start a successful business with Shopify

Cons

You need to accept that the themes do what they do, there is no ultra customise capacity like Wordpress but you can trust the themes are sales focused

I wish the themes supported more content rich sites, many people have a story behind the brand and many want the shop to be not the main focus, or at least have room for more creative self expression within the website

1.- easy to use. The installation of shopify is very easy to do and in a few hours you have an excellent sales platform ready to use, you can also customize almost all aspects of your new virtual store, since it has hundreds of templates and you can also edit the code of these if you need it.
2.- It has app for android and ios so you can manage your shopify teinda from the comfort of your mobile.
3.- customer service is very good, respond quickly and effectively all the doubts you may have.

Cons

1.- It's a bit expensive. So if you have a small store maybe you should look for another cheaper option. In addition to the price of the plan you must pay the sales commission, which will depend on the plan you have chosen, but the cheaper your plan the higher the commission you will pay.

I also like that they offer reduced shipping rates through their partnerships with USPS, UPS and others. It's also super convenient to download and print your shipping labels at home. It looks so much more professional, plus Shopify tracks what you spend in shipping for you, so there is less bookkeeping for the site owner. They also offer helpful tips for growing and optimizing your business.

Cons

I haven't encountered any issues, but for me, it has become cost prohibitive. I wanted a website with integrated point of sale, but my sales through the site are so incredibly low that I almost always pay more per month than I make, but that's probably more about my lack of hustle than Shopify being expensive.

Pros

I love Shopify. It was recommended to me by a friend who is another small business owner and it really does what it says on the tin. It's super easy to set up and to use, and you're ready to go in minutes. The integration with wordpress is seamless and it's definitely a must have option for those who need a shop.

Cons

I haven't found one yet. Although I've not been using it long enough to work out all the different quirks of the system.

Pros

Their partnerships team. They are extremely helpful and knowledgable. If you are an E commerce company there is not a better platform to use and scale on.

Cons

There is nothing that I dislike about Shopify. They have been incredible to work with from the beginning.
