Is a Shopify website right for me?

In most cases Shopify will be fine for your online store. Whether you have a few products or you have hundreds Shopify will be able to cope.

The main thing you need to consider when working with Shopify is how customisable do you want your store be? Unlike Woocommerce or Magento, Shopify is more restrictive with what you can edit. For the vast majority of users this is not an issue.

If you want to be able to customise your customer journey, or there is a specific design you want to implement then it may be better to try a different platform.

Shopify also tends to work on a subscription-based model so most apps will incur an additional monthly charge. You should consider this when thinking of whether to use Shopify or not.

Apart from that Shopify offers an easy way to get a professional ecommerce website with minimal coding and set up.

Connecting Shopify to Ebay, Amazon and Facebook

One of the great aspects of Shopify is being able to connect your store to other channels such as Ebay, Amazon, Facebook, Instagram and Google Shopping. The process for each varies but is generally easier than other platforms.

By connecting your Shopify website to other channels it gives more opportunity for customers to see your products and make sales. We feel this is an important thing to consider and will ensure your website can grow and generate orders.

If you already use Ebay or Amazon then connecting your Shopify store to those accounts will save you a lot of time as it will all be automated and there is no need to add products manually in both places.
