Shopify is a complete commerce platform that lets you start, grow, and manage a business.
Create and customize an online store. Sell in multiple places, including web, mobile, social media, online marketplaces or brick-and-mortar. Manage products, inventory, payments, and shipping. Shopify is completely cloud-based and hosted, which means you don’t have to worry about upgrading or maintaining software or web servers. This gives you the flexibility to access and run your business from anywhere with an internet connection.
Shopify has different monthly price plans. Although, it may not be the platform for everyone it does not eliminate the associated costs with hosting. You will incur a monthly fee weather your products sell or not.
What I can tell you is, you will have to do a lot of paid advertising and marketing to get those first sales. Some clients think if I build it they will come! This is a false statement. There is a chance you can pay thousands of dollars and not make one sale. It has as much to do with your product as it does with paid advertising.
Hit Designs recently built out a pet retailer website on Shopify for our friends at Stars and Tails.
Since most of their sales come from political pet products, we choose colors, photos and fonts to convey their brand. Did we mention we also designed their complete brand.
If your looking to build a Shopify website hit us up. Were glad to help.
