If you're an eCommerce business, you should be selling on Shopify. It provides a seamless purchasing experience for existing and new customers, and offers flexibility for even the most complicated online businesses.
When to consider Shopify
When meeting with eCommerce businesses, Shopify is always at the front of our mind. Shopify is designed to allow business owners to focus on their business. They empower entrepreneurs by providing an intuitive online store that doesn't require the maintenance and upkeep of other platforms.
One of the biggest advantages of working on Shopify is the App Store. Filled with thousands of robust solutions, the Shopify App Store is an ecosystem of eCommerce tools designed to help grow your online business.
Similar to Squarespace, Shopify doesn't require any complex outside hosting plans. This means it's easy to get started and you don't have to worry about performance or website security.
When to consider something else
Despite how flexible Shopify is, if you're not an eCommerce business, there are better alternatives. For non-complex websites centred around providing information to customers and not selling products online, platforms like Wordpress and Squarespace provide a more affordable solution with less clutter.
