I have successfully built 5+ websites with Shopify. If you want to build an eCommerce website and you have little to no experience with web development, then Shopify is your place to go. If, however, you need to have some kind of a custom made function on your website, it's possible you can run into some hurdles.

Shopify is the best platform for drop shipping and also for retailers who want to take their shop online. Anyone with no previous experience with web designing can also easily set up a shop and start selling globally.

Yemin K.


Great service but you need to be careful. Easy to use and hassle free. Analytics is super helpful. There are some learning curves but it is easy to get accustomed. If you want to add up some features, you have to pay the extra money and also you might need to sacrifice your site's speed because of the added codes from Apps.

Pedro G.


Excellent eCommerce platform from MVP to full scale. Really easy to setup without any technical knowledge and very cheap options. The 2 most deceiving facts about Shopify for me is when you go international as it does not support multicurrency or different stores by country sharing stock.

Muneeba F.


Shopify lets you sell via your Facebook page, allows you to use Shopify in a physical location to sell goods/manage inventory. Gives you access to Shopify's Buy Button, which allows you to sell goods on an existing website or blog.

Fast, straightforward, and functional software to launch an eCommerce store. The best features of Shopify is how easy it is to get an eCommerce store up and running. They walk you through the steps to get launched.

Scott S.M.


An extremely powerful and easy to use e-commerce platform. Shopify has been providing a very easy to use and powerful SaaS e-commerce platform for years. I can't even imagine using a non-SaaS shopping cart these days and Shopify is my go to product. There are some limitations in terms of implementing more complex catalogs or functionalities that often will require a 3rd party app.

Shopify POS is easy to use and great for places with distinct items. When using it to process payments, it's intuitive to use. While searching, even if the whole SKU is put in, Shopify POS (in its tile view) will only show the product, not the variant within it. Also, it doesn't show the SKU unless you press and hold the product image.

Thomas C.


Full-featured and powerful e-commerce platform. You only need to choose a template from a large number of proposed and customize it for your style. No design skills needed. It is very easy to add new sales channels, manage a large number of your products, set up to place orders with one click, easily follow your progress and track popular products among your potential buyers.

Integrated with multiple payment options including Apple Pay and other 3rd party Credit Merchants. Keeps accurate invoicing and pricing. Keeps our inventory on track for reordering merchandise. The POS can be used on iPads which allows our staff to process transactions while the customer is shopping instead of having them wait for a register if paying in card.
