Shopify Description

Shopify is a software script created by internet marketer and developer Tobia Lutke that gives people the means to create their own online stores. This is an online software script that is hosted through its own website for paid members, and not downloaded or installed on individual computers. The script can integrate with several online payment services, and can work with individual domains.

Shopify Detailed Overview

When you are running an online business, especially when you are selling your own products, you often find yourself in need of an internet store that you can integrate with your business website. Shopify offers a solution to this, with membership to their service that gives you access to a software program that you can use to build an online store that gives you and your customers everything needed to complete transactions.

When you sign up for a membership with Shopify, you are able to do such things as add, delete or edit your products or services for sale and easily manage your inventory database and order tracking. In addition, you can integrate with any number of online payment services, be protected by a credit card fraud detecting feature, and even run an on-site blog where you can communicate directly with your customers – a public relations plus.

Shopify is a monthly membership program, and there are different membership levels, according to your needs. The levels are Basic, Professional, Business, Enterprise and Premier. The monthly fees for these levels are $24, $59, $99, $249, and $699 respectively. Obviously, the Premier membership is for serious high-dollar online businesses. With basic membership you pay a 2% transaction fee, are allowed 100 MB of storage and unlimited bandwidth. As you go up in membership levels, you get more benefits. Premier members pay no transaction fees, plus they get such features as carrier shipping and real-time instant stats.

Great for buisness

I started up a store a few months ago and have been looking for more ways to make money with it. At first, I looked at free sites like free traffic exchange programs. I quickly learned that I would make a small amount of what I earned through these sites. I was emailed to shopify to me, so I thought I'd give it a try. I started using the thirty day free trial to test run it. The only thing I had to do was send designs of my products. They made it look professionally attractive, and I loved it. After using Shopify, I have sold fifteen more of my product. I definitely recommend this for anybody who has an online shop and wants to start selling more of their products, Shopify is Legit and it deserves an A.

Shopify + WordPress = Match Made In Heaven!

I set up an online store using the WordPress platform for a friend a couple of months ago, and in the beginning we were looking at a lot products/plug-ins designed to work great with an online store which works fairly well with WordPress. We found it with Shopify and we have never looked back. It's VERY easy to use, and the products look very professional and inviting to potential customers, so the investment made was well worth it. The pricing options are very attractive, and my friend is considering to upgrade in the near future, what with her online business doing great. WordPress has improved a lot over the years, allowing it to also become a powerful e-commerce platform, and Shopify has helped bring out that particular potential of WordPress to the maximum level.

Not a bad way to start a store

If you are looking to start a store that is relatively small, Shopify is a good choice. Their website is user friendly and all you have to do is add your products. The other thing that I really like is that you can customize it the way that you want it to look. I like that very much as it makes every store unique. The one thing that I did not like about it is that they do get 2% and there is a monthly fee. The bandwidth is also rather small, so you can't have a big business with this site. For starters however, or a small store, this is a very good place to start.

A simple way to build an online store

I've tried many times to get an online store up and running and it doesn't always work out. On the internet, you can't find many stores with a checkout system if it's not a big business.

But Shopify really simplifies the process. It does almost everything for you - the layout in which you can choose from, the price tags, all you need to do is input your items.

Yes, that process is not as hard as it seems.

HOWEVER - the catch to that is, you have to pay 2% commission, and you only have 100 MB of storage for the cheapest way. That makes me think otherwise, of maybe upgrading to another type of membership. But I have a small business, which makes upgrading seemingly useless. That's why I would only recommend Shopify to businesses that are big and want more money. Because if you are a small business, you won't get much extra income that makes it worthwhile to use Shopify.

Ideal for business owners looking to start a store

I started up a webcomic several years ago, and recently I had begun looking for ways to earn money with it. So the first thing that came to my mind was making and selling merchandise. At first, I looked at free sites like cafe press and zazzle. I quickly learned that I would make only a small percentage of what I earned through these sites. My uncle recommended shopify to me through email one night, so I thought I'd give it a try.

It was $24 per month for a basic plan, plus a free 30 day trial to test run your shop first. It was very easy to use and all I had to do was upload my designs for the products. Making an attractive looking storefront was very simple. I believe my shop's professional looking layout encouraged customers to buy from it. I was with Shopify for about 5 months and I sold over 30 pieces of merchandise through their service. I am planning to make another shop with them sometime in the future.

I recommend Shopify to those who want a professional merchandise store for their business.

Great for selling my T-Shirts!

I currently am a member of a band and we have been looking for an easy way to sell and distribute our merchandise and Shopify is just that. They have a great usability system as well as many different ways to access the store. They have an app on the iPod and iPhone which makes it really easy for me to access my store on the go as well as make it easy to show off my merch to other people I meet around the city. They have a great service and the stores run very smoothly. I am still running on the 30-Day Free Trial that they offer and am expected to renew my subscription when the time comes. I recommend this site to ANYONE who needs to sell products that they make or start their own little business.
