Overall Satisfaction with Shopify

We currently use Shopify as the platform for our official skincare e-commerce website. We have found it to be the best platform we have discovered thus far, especially if you are someone who is not very good at developing a website from scratch.

Pros

  • Shopify offers limitless themes, some are free and others are available at a decent cost.
  • The platform is more cost-effective than a lot of other platforms on the market currently.

Cons

  • Some of the apps available on the platform are lacking in quality.
  • It would be nice if the free trial would be 30 days. It does take a little time to get everything into their system.
  • Shopify has allowed us to create a website without the hefty fees that hiring a designer would.
  • Unless you suspend your account, you are responsible for the monthly fee.
The thing about Shopify is with the themes sometimes you cannot tell who the website is hosted is with, but with alternative platforms, you can tell exactly which platform the store is being hosted on and that really has to do with the vast variety of customizable themes available with Shopify.
Shopify is great for any e-commerce website. It would be a great option for someone with little to no experience in website development. It can be a little limiting when it comes to design, so if you are someone looking for a more of customizable website this may not be the best platform.
