With over 45,000 active online stores and growing, Shopify powers everything from small, one product stores to enterprise-class storefronts that do millions in sales each day. Here are 5 reasons we think Shopify is one of the best solutions for ecommerce businesses.

1. Ease of use

If you can attach a file to an email or upload a photo to Facebook you’ll have no trouble adding products to your online store. The last thing you want when starting your online business is to fight with your commerce software. Shopify’s great support team also have your back 24/7 should you get stuck.

2. Inexpensive

Shopify’s pricing is transparent and reasonable. It doesn’t take much investment to get your business online, looking great and selling to your customers. There are many free pre-built themes that with a little customisation can fit with your brand without having to pay for custom development and design.

3. Peace of Mind Security

For the sake of the security of your data and your customers, you will need to have SSL (The green HTTPS in the URL bar) on your site. With someone like Woo Commerce, you’ll have to pay extra for it, but with Shopify it’ll be free.

4. Reporting

Whether you want to review your business’s recent activity or build in-depth reports that give you the insight needed to develop it further, there’s plenty of useful data associated with your Shopify store’s products and transactions. You can access the sales, customer, acquisition, and behaviour reports to help you increase sales and customer relations.

5. Payment Gateways

Shopify allows you to use many different forms of payment. If you want to let your customers pay using a credit card, then you can use Shopify Payments or a third-party provider. There are also several ways for customers to pay online without using a credit card, like PayPal, Amazon Pay, and Apple Pay. You might also want to accept alternative methods of payment like BitCoin.
