Ideally it can work with any kind of retailer but workarounds and customisations required to handle deliveries.

Shopify is great for someone looking to become an affiliate marketer. They have multiple features to help you sell their product. I would say it is a little less appropriate for people who have limited web design experience. It can be a little confusing when you are first starting out. Overall though, I would say that it is easy to use.

Pros

LS Nav

  • Offline/semi-offline mode works well in areas where connectivity is an issue.
  • Pricing, offers and promotions can be configured exceptionally well in LS Retail.
  • POS interface design is simple, robust and easily configurable.
  • Security wise there is enough detail available to trace all kinds of POS transactions.

Shopify

  • 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

LS Nav

  • Data Director leaves room for improvement as it can be very tricky while dealing with a large number of master data records. Sometimes it doesn't write delete actions to POS.
  • Furniture retail is another area where improvement is required to handle deliveries.
  • Newer versions don't support data replicator which was the most reliable data tool with earlier LS Retail versions. There should be a replacement for this tool.

Shopify

  • 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.

Shopify continues to earn me money and attract new customers without becoming a burden to my business, so it only makes sense to stick with Shopify. After beginning with setting up stores for my other clients I became so happy with the platform I progressed to setting up a store for myself.

All the functionality needed for a basic store is extremely easy to manage. Though some deeper customization requires coding it doesn't hide the code from you and provides an abundance of developer resources.

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

It scores higher on overall user experience and matured features set.

Shopify was the easiest to use for my client on the backend, which was a major incentive for them over the other platforms. It had all the features they needed, and ultimately they were able to manage everything in-house without needing to bring in a major developer or sacrificing features

Return on Investment

LS Nav

  • Timely sales visibility
  • Optimum Inventory levels
  • Enough data to visualise trends and patterns

Shopify

  • Shopify has allowed me to add more products than I could have ordered on my own with investment upfront. Their dropshipping apps and tools make it the perfect add on to any clothing businesses to get started with less investment up front.
  • Within Shopify's app store I was able to use an affiliate app to help track influencers and sales that originated from those influencers to drive more sales. This paid app returns 100x its original cost each month and serves as a significant revenue generator to our store's sales.
