If you need a tool to manage a website, this is a good place to start. If you aren't ready for something of this caliber it might not be meant for your business. It's a stepping stone and you need to be ready to learn and it may require a bit more attention.

Shopify

It is perfect for small to medium size businesses. Large $10 million plus companies may be better suited for Magento because of their budgets and team size, but if you are just getting online, have a small or medium sized company and not unlimited budgets, than Shopify is the best choice for you.

Pros

  • Tons of reporting tools
  • Easy to navigate
  • Multiple user profiles

  • Ease of Use - Very user friendly. Anyone can pick it up within a couple days and know how to do almost everything.
  • Great Customer Service - The help is excellent. Also, they have a huge community where people are happy to help.
  • Ton of Add-Ons - You can find a ton of add-ons and modules to use that can be installed by you. They don't require developers.
  • Inexpensive - Because it's easy to use and doesn't require a ton of developer time, it's so much cheaper to run.

Cons

  • Not everyone can navigate easily without training
  • Some reports can be fairly large and take lots of time to download

  • Button selection-We run a niche based eCommerce and want to provide our customers with a fun atmosphere to shop. We are into fun and cute and the buttons for social media, the blog, etc., are basic, boring buttons. I would like to have more custom type buttons available.
  • More themes--Although Shopify has a good many themes, I do think that the site could use more. An eCommerce site needs to stand out from the competition and never look dated. Looking dated is the problem a lot of eCommerce sites face. I would like to see more of a selection of themes.

It was too expensive for the state that my business was in. After I get up on my feet again and can gain more of a customer base it may be an option. Right now it just was not a feasible way for me to run my growing business. I hope to use it again soon

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

More customization and ability to work with web designers make it an easy tool to manage projects and promote growth of your store front. It may not be as user friendly as others but it has more flexibility by far.

We have used Magento for higher end projects. Magento is open source and therefore has better customization capabilities. Shopify on the other had, is more user-friendly, more cost effective and has superior customer service, which some Magento versions don't have at all. Overall we find that Shopify is a better e-commerce platform for most businesses.
