Enables you to set up an online store regardless of your skill set but doesn't provide database access

What is our primary use case?

I used to use WordPress but when Shopify came out, I switched. I am very thorough with most of their apps — standard apps like Metafields Guru and Shopify integration. I also did a two-way integration between Shopify and ActiveCampaign. Currently, only one-way synchronization is available from Shopify to TickPick, but I created an API that also transfers data from ActiveCampaign to Shopify. In other words, I know Shopify, inside and out. Most of my clients prefer a themed store. They come to us with specific requirements, saying "I have a hundred products. Here are the categories and payment… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Shopify can be used without any coding knowledge."
  • "Many of our clients complain because it's costly and not an open-source."

What other advice do I have?

With Shopify, you don't have to do anything: log into your Shopify account, choose a default theme — the free one —, create a logo, create as many pages as you want, put in content, set up the products and the store is up and ready. A lot of my clients make good money using this solution, but it comes down to the products, service, the target audience, the pricing, and the competition in the market.

Easy to use, good support, and it will yield a high rate of return

What is our primary use case?

I have my own group of Shopify developers and we create Shopify stores for our clients. We also handle maintenance, fix bugs, and do whatever it is that they need. I have a partner account, which enables me to create the stores for my clients.

Pros and Cons

  • "Shopify provides an easy to use service at the backend that includes product upload, customer service, team settings, and team customization."
  • "I have many clients that want to sell their products to the wholesale market, and Shopify currently does not have that kind of feature."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering Shopify is not to hesitate. It is the best solution and I suggest implementing it. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using it is that it is simple to use and there is no complexity. I think that Shopify is the number one e-commerce platform. In my opinion, it is the best choice for e-commerce sites. That said, no service is perfect. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
