Shopify Review:
If you are ready to open your online store, you will definitely want to check out Shopify. With Shopify you will be able to create a great, professional-looking store in just a matter of minutes using professionally designed templates that were designed with search engine optimization (SEO) in mind to help you make your business a success.

With Shopify your online store is completely customizable. You can edit all your online store's HTML & CSS or edit the existing templates with their Theme Editor. Shopify allows you to use any domain or if you don't have one, you can use the free domain they create for you during signup.

The pricing listed in this review reflects a discount for purchasing a full year, although there is also a month-to-month option as well as additional savings for a 2 year commitment. With the Shopify cancel anytime policy there is no need to worry about committing to a contract as they will refund any unused portion at anytime, leaving you with a no risk opportunity to save money.

You will never have to worry about your security or updates because Shopify takes care of all of that for you. They setup your SSL certificates, take care of all your security enhancements, and do free automatic updates so your online store will always be up-to-date.

 stars    I have used Shopify, and this was a great start because everything is installed for you, and all you have to do is pay a simple monthly fee, however Ė it doesnít have necessary features to run a successful business online such as a customer database and email marketing features. You should look into a total online business platform such as which handles shopping cart, website, customer database and marketing features. Itís a hosted solution so you donít have to worry about the technical stuff either. All the other bases are also integrated, such as the payment gateways, shipping modules etc., and you can even give your customers coupons and vouchers. Itís an all in one solution so you donít need to juggle multiple systems.

 stars    On the surface, Shopify looks like it tops the competition, but only a few days into setting up a new shop and you realize that their templates are very limited. The templates are built on blog layouts which don`t offer enough options for a shopping cart. There was no way to build categories and subcategories with this software. Great bunch of people, but they really need to add more to their templates before they can be used by most stores.
