Shopify is a perfect dibs for an online e-commerce store and remains one of the most popular options around for maintaining the online store. Its popularity can be shown by the 600,000 merchants it has under its platform.
Shopify is much easier to use as it handles all the technical aspects and lets you decide the what you want on the storefront. It features ready-to-use templates and has multiple integrations along with app options. Moreover, there’s plenty of premium storefront themes that you can choose from if you want a more cohesive option around.
Shopify is much like Wix and Squarespace but differs in one aspect, i.e., Shopify is exclusively for e-commerce websites. It allows you to choose your domain name, but the hosting will be handled by Shopify itself. The best part, you can integrate payment options and add buy now button or point of sale system into your website pretty quickly.
You can add an unlimited number of items to your store as Shopify provides you with unlimited storage. It also shows you real-time shipping option and advanced reporting. There’s one thing though, it isn’t as flexible as WordPress and lacks the opportunity to extend SEO. Moreover, then there’s not much blogging facility as it is in WordPress. However, Shopify is an e-commerce website platform and works great on that. So don’t shy away from trying it out.
