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 Plus

I would recommend Shopify Plus to any merchant doing at least 500k/mo and doesn't primarily do subscription products. High volume merchants who run complex subscriptions may be better off on an eCommerce platform that doesn't rely on third-party subscription apps that can't even use Shopify's native checkout. Merchants doing under 500k are probably fine with one of Shopify's normal plans rather than Plus.

  • Wholesale store set up is a nightmare. It only allows for wholesale pricing at a consistent and specific discount. No customization in pricing which did not work for us.
  • Expensive - the cost involved was insane.
  • Sales reps will promise you whatever they need to, regardless of true feasibility.
  • Our Launch Rep was just terrible to work with. He couldn't answer any of our questions without having to reach out to other team members.
  • Even slightly complex product offerings will require you pay additional fees to 3rd parties for custom builds.

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 selected Shopify over Magento due to development, hosting and payment processing costs. And BigCommerce was a decent choice, but this let us start small and grow quickly.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to use customer service tools
  • Invaluable reporting abilities
  • Tier users makes it easy to manage employees

  • The setup was a waste of money. We never went live and just spent months paying extra money for add-ons and custom builds to make it work for us which in the end, never did.
  • Shopify needs to represent its platform properly. Sale Reps repeatedly lied about its abilities.
  • The only positive that came from this situation is we now know to ask more pointed questions and have Sale Reps provide written responses when answering inquiries about our use with their platforms.
