Curious what platform I love to use when building client eCommerce websites? Shopify is by far my favourite pick so today I’d like to share four reasons with you!
What is Shopify?
Put simply, Shopify is a subscription-based software that makes it simple to set up an online shop. If you own a retail store, Shopify also has a point-of-sale system making it a breeze to connect your online store to your brick-and-mortar one. As a complete eCommerce platform, Shopify makes it easy to launch your passion.
Extremely Reliable eCommerce Websites
When you run an online storefront, reliability is vitally important. One reason why Shopify is my go-to platform for eCommerce websites is that it’s extremely reliable. It has minimal to no downtime which means no stress for you as the website owner. With hosting, you get what you pay for ad Shopify’s fees are worth the peace of mind that comes with their steady service.
24/7 Customer Support
Support isn’t always top of mind when picking a website platform. However, when things go wrong you’ll be thankful for Shopify’s amazing support system. Should you have any issues, their team is available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. In addition, they offer chat, email, and phone support which is so hard to come from with tech companies these days.
All-In-One eCommerce Websites
This one is a game-changer for managing your eCommerce storefront. With Shopify, everything you need to oversee your shop is accessible to you from their dashboard. Also, the integrated app store makes it straightforward to add site functionality. See your website analytics, connect with your shipping partners, manage your email list, publish blog content, handle inventory, update site content, or add a store promo with ease. Lastly, you don’t have to worry about manually updating your site. The one frustrating things about WooCommerce is keeping your plugins, theme files, and such up to date. With Shopify, this is a non-issue.
An Easy To Use & Modern Backend
Shopify’s modern backend is so easy to use, even my non-techie clients have no problem managing their online store. You’ll love its intuitive interface and clean design. In fact, you won’t even need to keep me around much because you’ll find you can do it yourself!
So, if you’d like to give Shopify a try, use my referral link for a one-month trial to get started or send me a note and let’s set up a test store. Development stores allow you to build a site without paying subscription fees until launch.
