If your business SELLS something (whether it be product based or a service), then Shopify is the platform we recommend!
Shopify is a web application which provides you with a fantastic range of templates to meet your branding requirements, and allows either physical or digital goods to be sold.
Shopify is a hosted solution, which means you don’t need to worry about paying for web hosting separately, or installing software anywhere; the idea is that pretty much everything you need to build and run your store happens ‘out of the box.’ It's awesome!
You can customise your Shopify store through the addition of apps — or using custom code and as Shopify is a software as a service ('Saas') tool - it means that you don't own it but rather pay a monthly fee to use it. As long as you have access to a web browser and the internet, you can manage your store from anywhere.
Why WE love Shopify for our clients:
- The ease of use of the backend of Shopify which you’ll be confident to use, with training from us, at the time of handover
- The ability for you to add your own products directly from the Shopify smartphone app
- OR upload your new product pages direct from your desktop/laptop
- Upload blog posts monthly if you wish (we recommend at least monthly!)
- Make any changes easily - such as items on sale, highlight particular products as features on the home page etc.
- Shopify is the world’s leading multi-channel commerce platform, powering more than 400,000 businesses who have collectively sold more than $34 billion worth of products online or in-person.
- Shopify offers unlimited bandwidth, product inventory, and customer data.
- Shopify gives you 24/7 customer support over the phone (this is AWESOME!)
- Industry-leading security and reliability with 256-bit SSL certificates, Level-1 PCI compliance, and 99.9% uptime.
