We use Shopify to create custom online stores. Shopify handles everything from marketing and payments, to secure checkout and shipping, leaving us to focus on making it look beautiful. It’s not only one of the most popular ecommerce platforms on the market, it’s well supported, and a breeze for you to use.
What Is Shopify?
Shopify is a platform that provides us with everything we need to build you a feature rich online store. They do charge a monthly fee, but for that you get a 24/7 support team, a free SSL certificate, fraud analysis, and much more. Shopify also integrates with over 100 payment gateways so you can accept credit cards from around the globe. And if you use their payment gateway there are zero transaction fees.
Why We Like Shopify
Shopify saves us a lot of time. They’ve taken away the pain of custom coding by creating a platform where payment gateways, customer accounts and checkouts all work straight out of the box. That leaves us with the enjoyable task of designing you a site that matches your vision without us having to worry about coding complex functionality.
What About WooCommerce?
We understand that a monthly fee isn’t for everyone. That’s why we also work with WooCommerce and other ecommerce solutions which don’t charge you every month. There might be a more significant cost up-front for us to build the site, but going forward you won’t be tied in. Both options have their positives and negatives, it all comes down to what sits comfortably with you. Chat with us, and we’ll help you to decide which system best fits your needs.
