Why you will love Shopify

We know why we love building online shops with Shopify, but here’s our quick list of why you will love an online shop built on Shopify.

Shopify Is Easy To Use.

Shopify is an easy to use, hosted online shop framework for people wanting to quickly start their own online store without all of the hassle of self hosted online shops (such as those built with Magento for example). You don’t need to worry about hosts and servers, expensive development, or maintaining complicated technology. You get to focus on the design of your online shop, and then marketing and selling products.

Shopify is perfect for beginners and experts. Taking orders and payments is a breeze. Fulfilling orders – even easier. Even managing products is easy – for example to edit images is as simple as drag and drop.

Shopify Is Affordable.

The cost of a Shopify website is very affordable. The monthly plans start from just $29/month – this is no dearer than the cost of a reasonable web host. Also, you don’t need to maintain the host, again saving you money. Because we’ve worked on quite a few Shopify websites, the cost of designing the shop, building the templates, and setting up your store is very reasonable (especially compared to self hosted eCommerce solutions like Magento).

We’re very lucky to live in an age where it’s very easy and cheap to set up your own business – if you have something unique to sell.

Beautifully Designed Shops.

Shopify makes it easy for you to impress your customers with a beautiful online shop. Shopify has a theme store that offers a good range of shop themes that can be a great starting point if you just want to test the water. Once you’re ready for a more custom, unique design than a standard theme, you can easily engage an experienced Shopify designer like us. We can design a theme for you, or if you have your own designer, we can take their designs and turn it in to an online shop (creating the templates and building the store).

Powerful Marketing Tools.

Shopify has been built with marketing in mind. It’s quite easy to edit the content of your website and it’s products. You can edit the meta tags (meta titles, the page title, meta description, unique URLs) to improve your chances of competing in search engines. Shopify even generates sitemap.xml and robots.txt files automatically – saving you the hassle. If you’re migrating from an existing website, you can even manage 301 redirects through Shopify.

24×7 Technical Support.

It’s nice to know if you have a problem, you can call, chat or email Shopify any day of the week and they’ll help you. We’re also able to help as well. We provide training when we launch a Shopify site. Although you won’t need much – it’s so easy to use.

Shopify Is Extendable.

Shopify has been built in a way that other web developers like us can build new plugins and add new features for our clients. If there’s something you need your online shop to do, and Shopify doesn’t do it by default – we can build it!

There are also many Shopify Apps which also extend the way you can use your website. Many of the Apps are free, some cost a small one off payment and some have a small monthly subscription. But many of them add extra features that you might want to try.

Basically, if you are looking to create an online store then Shopify offers all the features you could possible require. If you’d like to know more about Shopify, or whether it’s right for you, feel free to get in touch.
