If you're an eCommerce business, you should be selling on Shopify. It offers a seamless purchasing experience for existing and new customers, and offers flexibility for even the most complicated online businesses.
When to consider Shopify
Shopify is designed to allow entrepreneurs to focus on running their business. They empower business owners by providing an intuitive online store that doesn't require the maintenance and upkeep of other platforms.
One of Shopify’s greatest advantages is their comprehensive 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 complex external hosting plans. This means it's easy to get started and you don't have to worry about sacrificing performance or website security.
When to look elsewhere
Despite how flexible Shopify is, if you're not an eCommerce business, there are better alternatives. For simple information-based websites that won’t need eCommerce expansions in the future, platforms like WordPress and Squarespace provide more affordable solutions with less unnecessary clutter.
