If you need an ecommerce, email marketing and affiliate program - it is great to have this all in one solution. Larger businesses with many employees in remote locations may need a different solution. If you do not need ecommerce or affiliate, you can use a lower cost program that costs less. The learning curve is short for a solo entrepreneur with some technical knowledge.

Shopify

I think Shopify is well suited for eCommerce of any kind. I have been an online retailer since the dark ages of 1998 and things have changed a lot. I found the site very business friendly and a good site for a beginning retailer as well as one who has been selling online for awhile. I know when customers go to my site, that everything will work correctly. Items will go into carts and customers can easily purchase anything they like. I haven't used it for anything else, so I am unsure as to how Shopify would be as a promotional site for either a business or an individual.

Pros

  • Access to contact information and creating customer profiles - good for reaching out through customer service, accessing email address, address and detailed information on the client helpful for responding quickly and easily
  • Able to add products and programs through auto responders - able to help share information with different groups of people easily and based on specific options within 1ShoppingCart
  • Easy to create coupon codes and pass to customers or add to website or newsletter for specific time ranges and products
  • Simple to add different products and sell easily with the integrated shopping cart
  • Great tool for multiple users to use and work as a virtual team based on different tasks and range that 1ShoppingCart has
  • Ability to create detailed reports based on sales, customers, and so much more. Very helpful for planning.

Cons

  • I found their customer service team to be confusing with their responses and not as helpful as other products customer service teams. It can be frustrating to try to decipher their responses to more complicated questions and often felt a little 'annoying' whenever I needed to reach out.
  • When creating newsletters, I found the WYSIWYG (what you see if what you get) version of creating newsletters the formatting was almost always off which always resulted in needing to send tests to myself to fix the formatting because it never showed up as it would look when it was sent. That took a lot of extra time to edit.
  • Lots of different options with reports, as a beginner you may need someone else to support you. In the beginning I needed support from other team members in how to understand and create certain reports. Not the most intuitive and user friendly until you understand what you're doing!

  • Shopping cart is hard to customize and it's hosted by Shopify separately
  • Transaction fees can get high if you have a lot of transactions
  • To do any special customizations, you will need a developer and the platform is somewhat rigid with capabilities.

If I were in charge of the renewal decision I would really take a look at 1SC vs. Infusionsoft. There are many ways each are great and many ways they are different. I would look at what was best for my company and make the choice accordingly. I find that Infusionsoft has many more ways to intuitively market, segment and cultivate new leads and grow the business as a whole than 1SC currently has.

I think most people are able to suer Shopify that have used a computer. There are some features that take a bit longer to learn. If you are not a creative person it may be a bit more difficult to learn the website customization, but with a help guide or tutorial it will only take a few tries to understand how to work the interface

In terms of support I give Shopify a 9 out of 10 because they're always very friendly and thorough, and they personally can't solve my problem for me they always point me in the proper direction with the proper information I need to move forward

Alternatives Considered

Again, it's the client that usually selects the system they want to use. I think 1ShoppingCart has lower monthly payment options so that makes it more appealing. Infusionsoft has a $2k payment that must be made in order to use their product

Shopify, to us, had more of a customization opportunity. We also felt that the plans offered by Shopify were more in gear with what we were looking to do with our company.
