This Canadian multinational is essentially an online selling platform that allows for easier creation of powerful e-commerce sites, capable of being completely customised to suit your brand and requirements. For a single monthly charge and very low fees (2.2% + $0.20 per sale), it allows merchants to create and develop a web-based shop from which to market, sell and deliver their products.
Essentially it’s a shopping cart solution based in the cloud and using SaaS (software as a service). In the admin panel, you add new products, update existing ones and process your orders, amongst many other options. You also get secure, dependable hosting included in the fees, which includes 99.8% uptime plus a free SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) certificate.
Shopify websites are known for their fast performance and stunning layout options, as well as being easy for online retailers to manage and update without any coding knowledge.
Designed to be used without extensive technical skills, Shopify makes it easy to add products, offer discounts or process orders, and this is a key factor behind its popularity. Equally, all server maintenance and upgrades are taken care of.
Get set up affordably.
With comparatively modest monthly charges, kicking off with a basic plan, and rising as you pay for more features, the platform is known for its affordability. Be aware, however, that there are fees of 0.5% to 2.0% on all transactions made via the platform.
Range of support options.
Customer support is available 24/7, via phone, email and live chat.
Excellent for dropshipping.
If you’re not familiar, this is when online retailers sell items which the manufacturers produce and ship. It means merchants only pay for what they sell. Many who use dropshipping have made Shopify their platform of choice, and you can integrate platforms for this, including Oberlo and Spocket.
Be mobile-ready. Not having a mobile-ready e-commerce site is not an option. Shopify is very mobile-responsive, and incorporates a free in-built mobile shopping cart. Your store will look superb whatever device it’s being browsed on, and customers will be able to browse and shop whenever and wherever they like. Additionally, there are Android and iPhone apps.
Marketing tools and SEO
Clearly, the most gorgeous-looking online store in the world is no good to anyone if no one knows about it. Shopify has powerful Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) features to help your e-commerce site rank more highly in the search results, in turn making it easier for customers to find you.
Equally, Shopify offers access to advanced analytics so that you can learn where your business is coming from, and fine-tune your marketing efforts accordingly. Tools on offer include social media integration, email marketing and product reviews, while other options (not available for all Shopify packages) include gift vouchers and discount codes.
Abandoned cart recovery
If someone puts an item in their shopping cart, they can still leave your site without buying it. With Shopify’s abandoned cart recovery service, there’s automatic tracking, and the browser is reminded by email to complete their purchase.
