What is Shopify?
Shopify is a leader in online eCommerce platforms. It is used by businesses (and many entrepreneurs) to set up an online store to sell their goods. You can organise your products, customise your storefront, accept credit card payments, track orders and collect customer information.
How Shopify Works
Shopify is a cloud based eCommerce solution. Store owners sign up and select a pricing plan based on their businesses needs. They also have the ability to upgrade their plan at any time.
Once an account is active, merchants can quickly and easily upload products to sell on their online store. It integrates with many of the top top marketing tools and business owners can process payments through a variety of different payment gateways.
Shopify Theme Development, Bespoke Websites and Shopify Apps
By using Shopify’s theme development capabilities, merchants can alter the look and extend the functionality of their online store. Either through a pre-exisiting theme (from the Shopify theme store) or a bespoke, custom theme. A bespoke website can be created to perfectly match the store owners vision for the brand, and all the functionality they require.
Shopify also has a Shopify App Store where expert developers have crafted custom built Shopify apps available to all merchants on the platform. These apps allow business owners to further extend, and customisation their store.
