Overall Satisfaction with Shopify

Shopify is the backend for our 2 e-commerce websites. We operate 2 branded sites that serve as our customer-facing websites. Our e-commerce and Marketing team both use Shopify on an ongoing basis to sell online.
It manages our store catalogs, inventory, images and descriptions. With Shopify, my team can control the look and feel of the online stores with many tools and apps that expand options, giving us complete and total flexibility. Shopify excels on the backend as it’s all in the cloud, and we do not have to host the servers, payment gateways. It also includes a wide-ranging suite of tools and analytics.
  • Cloud-based.
  • Scalability.
  • Promotions.
  • Marketing tools.
  • Website is in the cloud.
  • Payment options we couldn’t get.
We evaluated building our own site on servers with other software such as open-source. Include Magento.
None compare to the easy setup and scalability that Shopify has. Being on the cloud allows us not to worry about servers or anything else such as downtime or traffic spikes including security or payments.

Shopify is perfect for small and growing businesses that are looking for a full range website and mobile experience.

It can be set up quickly with relative ease.
Easy to grow and expand.
When ready, Shopify can easily scale to a more serious site with tools and apps.
The servers can handle traffic and sales transactions spikes with ease.
Where it needs some work is b2b.
Shopify is not made for business-facing, only consumers.
