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 is the industry standard when it comes to eCommerce software. It's basically the #1 ecommerce software solution that is out there that has everything under one roof. You want reliability? Shopify is your solution. You want fast website performance with great uptime? Shopify is your solution. The only area it's less appropriate is how their dedicated account support and tech support for Plus customers has kind of lost touch with it's customers. On the flipside Shopify's services are still the best in the industry, but that doesn't mean they can lose touch with their customers.

Pros

AspDotNetStorefront

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

Shopify Plus

  • Scales incredibly well. Forget about hardware concerns, load balancing, downtime, etc. and focus on eCommerce. We've seen merchants go from a few thousand dollars per month to having million dollar days, all on Shopify without having to worry about performance or scaling systems.
  • Great new features consistently being added, ahead of the curve on almost everything
  • Solid API to build on and work with, a few annoying quirks here and there for super complex use cases but overall very well documented and works well
  • Most Merchant Success Managers are good and genuinely want to be helpful
  • A fantastic user interface, very logical and easy to use
  • Tons and tons and tons of out of the box integrations. Easily the best integration marketplace of the e-commerce platforms. There's an app for that.

Cons

AspDotNetStorefront

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

Shopify Plus

  • Some features that are non-negotiates for some businesses are missing, or are only available if you use Shopify Payments. One that comes to mind is saved/vaulted credit cards.
  • Many aspects of Shopify Plus, including pre-built reporting features and widgets in the admin interface are very obviously built for small businesses. The larger you get as a business, the more irrelevant many of Shopify Plus features become.
  • Shopify Plus does not have a robust POS at all. The POS is not enterprise-level.

Alternatives Considered

AspDotNetStorefront

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.

Shopify is definitely more intuitive and easier to get running than Magento. Think of it as Shopify being built for the user and Magento being built for the developer. Overall, they both have similar capacities but I would choose Shopify every time over Magento. Brightpearl has no eCommerce built in functionality but we used to use it similarly to how we use Shopify and FarApp and we run into the same issues (although the product sync is a built more stable on the FarApp side).

Return on Investment

AspDotNetStorefront

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

Shopify Plus

  • 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.
