What makes Shopify a great eCommerce platform?

Shopify gives you something priceless: peace of mind.

It's Easy to Use

Shopify is designed to be easy to use, even for people who don't have technical expertise. You can set up your online store, add products, process orders, and handle payments all from a single dashboard.

It's Flexible

Shopify offers a range of options and tools that allow you to customize your online store to suit your business needs. You can choose from a variety of templates, add apps to add extra features, and use Shopify's API to build custom integrations.

It's Reliable

Shopify is a trusted and reliable platform that is used by hundreds of thousands of businesses around the world. Your store will be hosted on servers that are optimized for e-commerce, so you can be confident that your store will be fast and reliable.

It's Secure

Shopify is PCI compliant, which means that it meets the security standards required to process online payments. This gives your customers confidence in the security of their transactions, which can help to increase sales.

It's Scalable

As your business grows, Shopify can scale with you. You can add as many products and processes as you need, and Shopify's infrastructure will be able to handle the increased traffic and sales volume.

Disadvantages of Shopify

Are there any downsides? Hardly any, but if Shopify doesn't fit the specific needs of your business, we'll be the first to admit it.

There are three main pricing plans offered by Shopify: Basic Shopify, Shopify, and Advanced Shopify. Here is an overfiew of the pricing for each plan:

All of the plans include a 14-day free trial, so you can try out the platform before deciding which plan is right for you.

In additional to the monthly subscription fee, there are also transaction fees for each plan. These fees are based on the payment gateway you use to process your transactions. If you use Shopify’s own payment gateway, called Shopify Payments, the transaction fees are as follows:

  • Basic Shopify: 2.9% + 30 cents per transaction
  • Shopify: 2.6% + 30 cents per transaction
  • Advanced Shopify: 2.4% + 30 cents per transaction

There are also additional fees for using third-party payment gateways, such as PayPal or Stripe.

Finally it’s worth noting that there may be other costs associated with running an online store, such as purchasing a domain name, purchasing apps or themes, and paying for any custom development work that you need.

If you want to collaborate with Shopify specialists of an agency like Eastmont, then you need to take the costs of developing your online store into account. Since the scope completely depends on design and requirements, think of a bandwidth of 20-200K.
