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.

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

Alternatives Considered

Shopify

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.

Return on Investment

Shopify

  • It's allowed us to support our customers and I think showcase our products better than our previous cart.
  • There are a number of built-in and add-on tools that allowed us to quickly improve our conversion rate and average order value.
