Shopify Features Review

Let me dive into Shopify’s functionalities and tell you a bit more of what I think of it. Hopefully, this will help clarify some questions you may still have.

It’ll be long, so skip to the conclusions if you are in a rush.

Shopify ease of use

Don’t be mistaken, although shopify review is really easy to use, it’s an extremely powerful tool too. For example, you can set up and launch your online store in one weekend (no joke). But you could also spend days or even weeks developing a custom solution to fulfill your needs.

Personally, I think Shopify lets you do more with fewer clicks than competitors like Volusion or BigCommerce. And Content Management Systems such as WordPress or Magento don’t even come near in terms of ease of use.

I also find their backend intuitive and straightforward to navigate. Whenever I got stuck, all I had to do was check their tutorials or ask support on their live chat – most of the time support was helpful and quick to answer.

Shopify is not short on templates and they generally look modern and professional. They are also responsive, which means that they’ll look great on any device – Google really likes this last point.

Sadly, they only offer a handful of free templates (about 10) – I really wished they had a couple more.

However, if you have a budget, you can buy one of their paid themes that cost between $140-180. Another option is to purchase a theme from an external marketplace like Themeforest, where prices are generally lower (around $50).

Or if you need a specific design you could get one exclusively developed for you from one of the many Shopify experts.

In terms of template customization, Shopify gets it right. I find it super easy to personalize store templates. Changing global styles is a walk in the park (e.g. colors, fonts, or social media buttons) with the theme editor menu.
